High-Channel Count Temperature Solutions

High-Channel Count Temperature Solutions

This complete temperature measurement system from National Instruments is based on the SCXI platform. SCXI consists of a chassis for data communication and individual modules for signal measurement. The modules selected for these configurations are the most popular for temperature measurement, but additional modules are available for other signal types including strain, current, acceleration, and digital I/O. For even higher-channel-count applications, you can link multiple chassis together for more than 3,000 data acquisition channels. For more information on linking chassis, exploring other module types, or selecting the system that is right for you, visit the SCXI Advisor or see the contact options below.


Option 1 Choose a System

Select one of the complete systems below, considering the following:

  • Choose System 1 for thermocouple measurement and System 2 for RTD or thermistor measurement.
  • Determine the number of modules and terminal blocks you require based on the number of channels you need.
  • One terminal block is required per module.
  • Screw-terminal blocks are shown below. For minithermocouple connectors (TC-2095), please contact NI.
