What Is FieldDAQ™?

FieldDAQ devices are rugged, dust-proof, water-resistant data acquisition devices designed for simplified distribution in the most extreme environments.

Superior Measurements in Severe Environments

Test engineers increasingly need data acquisition devices that can withstand harsh test environments for distributed measurement nodes where digitization and signal conditioning occur as close to the sensors as possible, as opposed to centralized systems susceptible to noise. FieldDAQ dust- and water-proof data acquisition devices are TSN-enabled for simplified distribution in rugged environments. From off-highway vehicles to extreme temperature test cells, FieldDAQ delivers unprecedented rugged specifications to NI’s portfolio and helps engineers deploy accurate measurement systems closer to their sensors in rain, sleet, snow, or mud.

Key Benefits

  •  Deploy in Harsh Environments—FieldDAQ devices have an ingress protection rating up to IP67, which means they are dust-resistant and water-resistant. They maintain excellent accuracy across a wide range of extreme environments, including temperatures from -40°C to 85°C, 10 g vibration, and 100 g shock. Learn more
  • Extend Your Measurement System—Quickly add additional measurements and channels to your data acquisition system using FieldDAQ. Go beyond enclosures and distribute your measurements closer to your sensors in any environment. Learn more
  • Synchronize Distributed Systems—FieldDAQ simplifies distributed measurements with Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), which provides accurate synchronization within 1μs over long distances. Sharing data transfer and synchronization over one cable cuts cabling costs and complexity. Learn more
  • Get to Measurements Faster with FlexLogger—FlexLogger helps you build flexible, scalable data-logging systems with FieldDAQ hardware, no programming required. You can use sensor-specific configuration workflows to quickly set up, visualize, and log a mix of  synchronized measurements. Learn more
