Reduce Measurement System Cost with the New, Rugged CompactDAQ Controller

NIWeek: NI (Nasdaq: NATI), the provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, today announced the CompactDAQ 4-slot controller. By integrating the processor, signal conditioning and I/O into a single CompactDAQ system, engineers and scientists can reduce overall system cost and complexity while increasing measurement accuracy. Integrated measurement systems reduce the number of components, connections and wiring needed, where noise and additional costs are often introduced, to ensure high-accuracy measurements and cost-optimized systems.

“Because the CompactDAQ controller is a stand-alone device, we don’t have to spend money on a separate computer, signal conditioning or cabling,” said Ryan Ewart, mechatronics engineer at Yanos Aerospace. “Using the CompactDAQ platform, we’ve reduced system complexity, cost and installation time.”

The CompactDAQ controller features an Intel Atom dual-core processor that can run either industry-standard Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time for ultimate system reliability. By pairing industry-standard OS options with LabVIEW system design software, customers can easily port LabVIEW code from existing measurement systems to these new CompactDAQ controllers. Engineers and scientists can combine LabVIEW and over 60 sensor-specific I/O modules for CompactDAQ to quickly customize data acquisition systems to meet their specific application needs.

“We designed this next-generation CompactDAQ controller based on customer feedback, making it smaller, less expensive and more rugged,” said Stefanie Breyer, director of data acquisition R&D at NI. “By leveraging the latest Intel Atom 3800 processor within the controller, our customers can deploy powerful processing paired with high-accuracy measurements anywhere.”

Key Features

  • Integrated Intel Atom Dual-Core Processor: Reduce system cost and take your measurement system anywhere by having an integrated processor built into the measurement system.
  • Removable SD Storage: Forget about data storage limits with hot-swappable, removable SD storage.
  • Integrated CAN/LIN Port: Cut costs by taking advantage of the built-in CAN/LIN port.
  • Four C Series Module Slots: Mix and match a variety of I/O types, including AI, AO and DIO to meet your specific application needs.
  • Rugged Form Factor: Take measurements in high shock and vibration environments as well as temperatures ranging from -40 °C to 70 °C.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
