National Instruments offers a variety of sound and vibration modules for interfacing with accelerometers and microphones. These modules provide IEPE signal conditioning, 24-bit resolution, antialiasing filters, up to 118 dB dynamic range, and up to 204.8 kS/s simultaneously sampled channels. With National Instruments sound and vibration measurement hardware, you have the flexibility to create a wide variety of custom automated measurement systems on industry-standard computer platforms. Systems can combine data acquisition, modular instrumentation, signal conditioning, vision, motion, and more. NI dynamic signal acquisition (DSA) devices are designed specifically for applications requiring audio, noise, and vibration measurements. They can acquire signals at sampling rates up to 204.8 kS/s with 24-bit resolution.
PXI - High Channel Industrial Platform
PXI (PCI eXtensions for Instrumentation) is a rugged PC-based platform for measurement and automation systems. PXI combines PCI electrical-bus features with the rugged, modular, Eurocard packaging of CompactPCI, and then adds specialized synchronization buses and key software features. PXI is both a high-performance and low-cost deployment platform for measurement and automation systems. These systems serve applications such as manufacturing test, military and aerospace, machine monitoring, automotive, and industrial test.
PCI - Personal Computer
National Instruments offers data acquisition hardware for several platforms. NI PCI data acquisition boards plug into any desktop computer, and NI data acquisition modules work with PXI/CompactPCI, a more rugged modular computer platform specifically for measurement and automation applications, and NI CompactDAQ, a portable USB-based measurement system.
CompactRIO - Embedded Portable Industrial System
The NI CompactRIO programmable automation controller (PAC) is a low-cost reconfigurable control and acquisition system designed for applications that require high performance and reliability. The system combines an open embedded architecture with small size, extreme ruggedness, and hot-swappable industrial I/O modules. CompactRIO is powered by reconfigurable I/O (RIO) FPGA technology.
CompactDAQ - Portable USB-Based Industrial System
NI CompactDAQ hardware provides the plug-and-play simplicity of USB to sensor and electrical measurements on the benchtop, in the field, and on the production line. By combining the ease of use and low cost of a data logger with the performance and flexibility of modular instrumentation, NI CompactDAQ delivers fast and accurate measurements in a small, simple, and affordable system.
