Adding Data Logging

  • Logging Data with a USB Data Acquisition Device
    Learn how to log measured data from from a USB data acquisition device and access it with Microsoft Excel.

Before You Begin

Acquiring data is the first step in performing an experiment, but the data is lost if it is not recorded. This is where computer-based data logging is useful. Data logging allows for every point of data acquired by the DAQ device to be recorded to a measurement file for later review. This module introduces you to data logging in NI LabVIEW software. Prior to starting this module, review the Learn LabVIEW modules to understand the fundamentals of graphical programming.
