    Platform Modules

    Platform modules integrate with modular hardware platforms that allow you to combine different types of modules in a custom system that leverages shared platform features. NI offers three hardware platforms—CompactDAQ, CompactRIO, and PXI—though all platforms may not be represented in this category.

  • Starting from

    Performs counter timer tasks such as encoder position measurement, event counting, period measurement, pulse measurement, and frequency measurement in C Series systems.

    Feature Highlights:

    • Platform: CompactDAQ, CompactRIO
  • Provides frequency and counting measurements of periodic signals for CompactDAQ and CompactRIO systems.
  • Starting from

    Performs counter timer tasks such as encoder position measurement, event counting, period measurement, pulse measurement and generation, and frequency measurement in PXI systems.

    Feature Highlights:

    • Platform: PXI
    • Bus: PXI, PXI Express
  • Stand-Alone or Computer-Based Devices

    Stand-alone or computer-based devices either integrate with standard desktop and laptop computers or allow you to use them without the need for other modular hardware.

  • Starting from

    Performs counter timer tasks such as encoder position measurement, event counting, period measurement, pulse measurement and generation, and frequency measurement in desktop systems.

    Feature Highlights:

    • Bus: PCI, PCI Express
