The final two webcasts in the Measure Better Webcast Series will be presented by NI the next two Thursdays at 11 a.m. CDT. The series, hosted by Electronic Design, is a free opportunity to learn how you can use NI hardware and software to take better measurements.

 

Topics for the remaining webcasts are as follows:

 

  • June 17 – How to Obtain the Best Measurements Out of Strain Gages

Learn the basic operation of strain gages and how to select the most appropriate gage and bridge configurations for your application. Also discover best practices for performing high-accuracy strain measurements with NI signal conditioning products.

 

  • June 24 – How to Design an Accurate Thermocouple Measurement System

Review the basics of thermocouple sensors, and learn best practices and technologies for obtaining high-accuracy thermocouple measurement systems.

NI is presenting a free webcast series in June that will show you how to use NI hardware and software to take better measurements. Hosted by Electronic Design, the series starts on June 3, and a new webcast will be presented every Thursday at 11 a.m. CDT. 

 

Topics for the webcast series are as follows:

 

June 3 – How to Build Better Test Systems for Load, Pressure and Torque

Learn how sensors work, the benefits of Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) smart chip technology, sensor instrumentation requirements and how to set up a simple load, pressure and torque measurement system with NI LabVIEW.

 

June 10 – How to Measure Vibration and What It Tells You

Explore a system for acquiring vibration signals as it is defined from sensor to software, and discover how software-defined analysis enables vibration data to solve real-world problems in development and field test.

 

June 17 – How to Obtain the Best Measurements Out of Strain Gages

Learn the basic operation of strain gages and how to select the most appropriate gage and bridge configurations for your application. Also discover best practices for performing high-accuracy strain measurements with NI signal conditioning products.

 

June 24 – How to Design an Accurate Thermocouple Measurement System

Review the basics of thermocouple sensors, and learn best practices and technologies for obtaining high-accuracy thermocouple measurement systems.

NI has introduced a company-first line of data acquisition (DAQ) modules with integrated signal conditioning for scalable, high-performance measurements on PXI Express.

 

The NI SC Express family gives you increased accuracy, high data throughput and best-in-class synchronization for measuring strain gauges, bridge-based transducers, thermocouples and high-voltage analog inputs. You can increase channel count without compromising sampling rates or data throughput, thanks to PXI Express providing 250 MB/s of dedicated bandwidth for each SC Express module in the chassis.

 

The new modules include the following:

 

  • NI PXIe-4330 – 24-bit simultaneous bridge input module with 0.02 percent accuracy and 25 kS/s per channel sample rate

  • NI PXIe-4353 – thermocouple module with 0.30 °C accuracy on 32 channels

  • NI PXIe-4300 – high-voltage isolated analog input module capable of measuring 300 V with simultaneous sampling

 

The new modules include NI-DAQmx driver software and multi-device task support for easing the process of synchronizing multiple modules. Additionally, the new modules integrate with NI software including NI LabVIEW and the LabVIEW Real-Time Module, NI-Sync and NI DIAdem.

National Instruments today introduced the NI USB-TC01, an easy-to-use USB data acquisition device for measuring and recording temperature data from a thermocouple. The device features NI InstantDAQ technology that automatically loads built-in measurement software without any prior driver software installation. The device is priced at $99 USD.

 

Additional USB-TC01 features include:

 

  • Standard miniplug connector for easily swapping different thermocouples

  • Live monitoring for instant results

  • Free downloadable applications for additional out-of-the-box functionality

  • Customizable with NI LabVIEW and NI-DAQmx driver software to greatly expand device capabilities

 

The USB-TC01 is so easy to operate, even your grandmother can use it.
