NI Delivers USB Portable DAQ System for Sensor and High-Voltage Measurements.

AUSTIN, Texas -- National Instruments (Nasdaq:NATI NATI National Association of Teen Institutes

) today announced two new versions of the NI DAQPad-6015, a plug-and-play, multifunction data acquisition (DAQ See data acquisition. ) device for USB USB
 in full Universal Serial Bus

Type of serial bus that allows peripheral devices (disks, modems, printers, digitizers, data gloves, etc.) to be easily connected to a computer.
. Engineers and scientists can use NI SCC SCC - strongly connected component  signal conditioning devices with the new NI DAQPad-6015 mass termination version to measure a wide range of sensor and high-voltage signals up to 100 VDC VDC Volts Direct Current

. NI SCC signal conditioning carriers fit neatly on top of the DAQPad-6015 to create a portable, customizable data acquisition system with up to 300 V Cat II isolation per module.

Because the DAQPad-6015 connects to SCC signal conditioning carriers such as the SC-2345 and SC-2350 modules for transducer electronic data sheets (TEDS), engineers can reduce system setup time by taking advantage of USB plug-and-play features and smart sensor technology. Engineers can use the SCC carriers to select their sensor or signal conditioning types, as well as their direct connectivity types on a per-channel basis.

The combined DAQPad-6015 and SCC system is ideal for applications requiring a laptop for portability because it connects easily via USB to any laptop and provides a broad range of measurements in the field. For example, vehicle and machine diagnostic applications or biomedical bi·o·med·i·cal

 environments often require portable measurement systems that engineers can transport directly to where they are conducting tests.

For portable applications that do not require signal conditioning, the BNC connector version of the DAQPad-6015 is useful for portable, quick signal connection and disconnection. All DAQPad-6015 versions offer sixteen 16-bit AI channels, two AO channels and eight DIO DIO Diode

 channels, giving engineers the ability to address both measurement and control needs with a single device. They also include NI-DAQmx measurement services software and are compatible with NI LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio for Visual Studio .NET A suite of programming languages and development tools from Microsoft that supports the .NET environment. Upon its introduction in 2001, it included Visual C# and .NET versions of Visual Basic and Visual C++. See .NET.  and other USB data acquisition devices.
