What Is the CompactDAQ Strain and Load Measurement Bundle?

The CompactDAQ Strain and Load Measurement Bundle is based on CompactDAQ hardware. It simplifies connecting bridge-based load cells, pressure cells, or quarter-, half-, and full-bridge strain gages to a PC.

Benefits of the CompactDAQ Strain and Load Measurement Bundle

Get Started Quickly

Use included accessories to wire sensors to the RJ50 module and connect directly to the computer with USB to analyze or log data. Use example code and measurement templates to quickly create test applications with confidence.

Focus on Your Test

Strain/bridge modules are designed with sensor needs in mind. Capture impact and rapid load events with up to 50 ks/s/ch simultaneously. You can now focus more energy on the results rather than the acquisition.

Measure in Harsh Settings

NI’s popular and trusted instruments for strain-based sensors measure strain, load, torque, or pressure. It’s portable and works in harsh environments, withstanding operating temperatures from -40 ºC – 70 ºC and 50 g of shock.

Customize Your System

From bare-wire sensors or RJ50 TEDS sensors, these bundles can meet your needs. Flexibility is key in managing design updates and customer requests; with different modules and slot-count options, CompactDAQ systems are adaptable.
