Connect Sensors and Signals to a DAQ Device

After you have installed and configured your NI DAQ device, you should connect your sensors and signals for your measurement application.

Because all NI DAQ devices use the same NI-DAQmx software and comparable hardware architectures, the process of connecting a sensor to one device is similar for connecting the same sensor to all devices. For example, connecting an accelerometer to a C Series module in a USB CompactDAQ chassis is the same as connecting it to a PXI module.

To begin, find your sensor or signal in the list below and follow the link for step-by-step Set Up and configuration instructions.
