National Instruments' 1-slot CompactDAQ chassis supports wireless, USB and Ethernet buses. The metal enclosures make the chassis more resistant to environmental damage as compared to the previous plastic sleeves.
The chassis operate in a temperature range of 0 to 55 degrees Celsius and can withstand up to 30 g shock and 3 g vibration,
The NI cDAQ-9191, cDAQ-9181 and cDAQ-9171 chassis support all NI C Series modules for the NI CompactDAQ platform and can be used in conjunction with the existing 4- and 8-slot chassis.
More than 50 measurement-specific modules featuring multiple electrical and sensor connectivity options can be combined with any chassis to create customised systems specific to the needs of numerous applications.
NI Signal Streaming technology delivers high-bandwidth capabilities that make it possible to achieve sustained high-speed and bidirectional data streams over USB, Ethernet and wireless buses. Zero configuration networking technology simplifies initial setup, eliminating the need for IT involvement in network setup and integration.
NI-DAQmx driver software, included with each NI CompactDAQ chassis, goes beyond a basic device driver to deliver increased productivity and performance. It enables the logging of data for simple experiments or development a complete test system in NI LabVIEW, NI LabWindows/CVI, ANSI C/C++ or Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.
A consistent API means that an application developed for an NI CompactDAQ wireless chassis will work with an NI CompactDAQ USB or Ethernet chassis without any modifications to the software.The latest CompactDAQ chassis now support the new controller area network (CAN) C Series module for optimal communication across various networks.
