Mix and Match Sensor Types
Traditional data loggers include fixed configurations for measuring different sensor types. Using the NI C Series platform, you can build a flexible system to connect to any sensor type. Currently, you can choose from more than 50 C Series modules for different measurements including thermocouple, voltage, resistance temperature detector (RTD), current, resistance, strain, digital (TTL and others), accelerometers, and microphones. Because the modules contain built-in signal conditioning for extended voltage ranges or industrial signal types, you can usually connect wires directly from the C Series modules to your sensors.
Programmable With LabVIEW
You can program NI modular data-logging systems with custom functionality using NI LabVIEW, a graphical programming environment used by millions of engineers and scientists. Featuring intuitive graphical icons and wires that resemble a flowchart, LabVIEW makes it easy to take measurements from any sensor. Simply drag and drop controls and graphs to create custom user interfaces, and graphically wire together function blocks to define your own software functionality for logging data, alarming, triggering, reporting, and analyzing real-time data.
