Guide to Accurate Sensor Measurements


Quality Hardware Means Reliability and Results

From taking basic measurements in an academic lab to automating experiments with instrument-level accuracy, multifunction DAQ hardware and software are versatile tools. This guide covers what it takes to make accurate sensor-based measurements while reducing potential sources of error in your system.

Multifunction I/O Devices for PC-Based Measurements

These USB DAQ devices include software support and getting started resources for a variety of application development environments and programming languages.

 

Key Benefits:

  • Easy setup with bus-powered USB connection
  • DAQExpress™ application software
  • Comprehensive API to develop custom applications in LabVIEW, C, C++, Visual Basic, .NET, and Python
  • Small and lightweight form factor

In the Box: Companion Software for Quick Measurements

Quickly configure your measurement with the included DAQExpress application software for interactively recording, viewing, and exploring data. Easily get started without programming using built-in measurement panels, and seamlessly turn to code when customization is needed.

Software Options to Meet Your Needs

For more advanced measurement and automation applications, the included NI-DAQmx driver lets you choose from a variety of fully supported programming languages such as ANSI C, Visual C# .NET, Visual Basic .NET, and, of course, G in LabVIEW.
