National Instruments Introduces 10 Wi-Fi and Ethernet Data Acquisition Devices

via PRNewswire

Wireless technology extends NI data acquisition hardware and software technology to new distributed and portable measurement applications where wiring is difficult or cost-prohibitive. The flexibility of LabVIEW graphical programming and the ubiquity of Wi-Fi network infrastructure make it easy to incorporate wireless sensor measurements into new or existing PC-based measurement or control systems. For more information on the devices, see the chart below.

Module Signal Channels Rate Connectivity WLS-9211 Thermocouple, 4 14 S/s Screw terminal ENET-9211 24-bit WLS-9215 Simultaneous 4 100 kS/s/ch Screw terminal ENET-9215 sampling, 16-bit or BNC WLS-9219 Universal 4 100 S/s/ch Spring terminal ENET-9219 (11 modes) WLS-9234 IEPE (accelerometer 4 51.2 kS/s/ch BNC ENET-9234 and microphone), 24-bit WLS-9237 Bridge completion, 4 50 kS/s/ch RJ50 ENET-9237 24-bit

The Wi-Fi and Ethernet DAQ devices are shipped with NI-DAQmx driver software and NI LabVIEW SignalExpress LE, an interactive data-logging software for quickly acquiring, analyzing and presenting data with no programming required. The NI-DAQmx driver delivers time-saving features such as the configuration-based NI DAQ Assistant with code generation for both LabVIEW and text-based languages; more than 3,000 measurement examples; device simulation; connection diagrams; and compatibility with LabVIEW, ANSI C/C++, C#, Visual Basic .NET and Visual Basic 6.0.
