National Instruments unveils new eight-slot NI CompactDAQ Ethernet chassis
Aug 19, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
National Instruments Corporation, a producer of automated test equipment and virtual instrumentation software, has announced the NI cDAQ-9188XT, an eight-slot NI CompactDAQ Ethernet chassis designed for distributed or remote measurements in extreme environments.
According to the company, the cDAQ-9188XT can withstand temperatures from -40 to 70 degrees centigrade, 50g of shock and 5g of vibration. Engineers in the automotive, military and aerospace industries have used it to successfully acquire data and avoid costly repeat tests.
"We're using the cDAQ-9188XT to track pressure, vibration, velocity and more in our jet-powered vehicle as we try to break the world land speed record," said Steve Wallace, data acquisition scientist for the North American Eagle Project. "So far it's survived everything we've thrown at it and given us great results."
In addition, the chassis is the first in the NI CompactDAQ platform to offer an onboard watchdog with defined safe states to help protect your tests and equipment. The platform includes 10 chassis options, three buses and over 50 C Series modules with a wide range of connectivity and I/O. The platform also has native integration with NI LabVIEW system design software, which provides signal processing libraries and user interface controls designed for data visualization, the company reported.
"From single-signal benchtop measurements made in laboratories to distributed, rugged or stand-alone measurements made in some of the most extreme conditions on earth, it's amazing how our customers' applications have evolved over the past 25 years," said Chad Chesney, director of data acquisition marketing at National Instruments. "By continuing to invest in NI CompactDAQ, we'll contribute to even more engineering accomplishments over the next quarter century."
