New CompactDAQ measurement systems with Intel Atom quad-core and USB 3.0 technology, DIAdem 2015 and DataFinder Server Edition 2015 create smarter measurement and data management solutions.
New hardware and software additions have been announced by National Instruments to help engineers create smarter measurement and data management solutions: new 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers featuring quad-core processing, a new 14-slot USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis, DIAdem 2015 and DataFinder Server Edition 2015.
With the exponential growth of engineering data, smarter, software-based measurement systems help users embed intelligence and processing at the point of acquisition, capturing only the most necessary data. The new 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers feature Intel Atom quad-core 1.91 GHz E3845 processors, programmable with new LabVIEW 2015 system design software, so engineers and scientists can customise their data acquisition systems to add functionality like processing, intelligence and control. The new controllers can run either Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time, and include 32 GB of nonvolatile storage and removable SD storage to create smarter data logging and embedded monitoring applications.
The new USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis helps users scale their measurement systems to higher-channel-count applications without reducing transfer speed. With a 14-slot expansion capacity and USB 3.0 streaming capabilities, the new CompactDAQ Chassis and LabVIEW software can handle current data acquisition needs and easily adapt to meet future needs in a single system.
To make critical data-driven decisions, an enterprise data management solution is paramount to managing, analysing and visualising big data. NI is releasing DIAdem 2015 as 64-bit software, so users can load and analyse more data than before. DataFinder Server Edition 2015 delivers multistep querying that can be sent out to a global federation of servers to find the data users need to analyse in seconds.
