The company’s latest CompactDAQ eight-slot controller addresses high-channel count applications in rugged environments to simplify system configuration. The controller integrates the processor, signal conditioning and I/O into a single CompactDAQ system to reduce overall system cost and complexity while increasing measurement accuracy. Both the four-slot and eight-slot CompactDAQ controllers feature an Intel Atom dual-core processor that can run either Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time. By pairing industry-standard OS options with LabVIEW system design software, users can port LabVIEW code from existing measurement systems to the CompactDAQ controllers. They can combine LabVIEW and over 60 sensor-specific I/O modules to customize data acquisition systems to meet their application needs. Other features include removable SD storage and an integrated CAN/LIN port. For more details and specs, visit http://www.ni.com/compactdaq/controllers
