The National Instruments USB-6008 provides basic data acquisition functionality for applications such as simple data logging, portable measurements, and academic lab experiments. It is affordable for student use, but powerful enough for more sophisticated measurement applications. Use the NI USB-6008 with the included ready-to-run data logger software to begin taking basic measurements in minutes, or program it using LabVIEW or C and the included NI-DAQmx Base measurement services software for a custom measurement system.
To supplement simulation, measurement, and automation theory courses with practical experiments, NI developed a USB-6008 Student Kit that includes a copy of the LabVIEW Student Edition. These kits are exclusively for students, giving them a powerful, low-cost, hands-on learning tool. Visit the NI academic products page for more details.
For faster sampling, more accurate measurements, calibration support, and higher channel count, consider the NI USB-6210 and NI USB-6211 high-performance USB data acquisition devices.
Every USB data acquisition module includes a copy of NI LabVIEW SignalExpress LE so you can quickly acquire, analyze and present data without programming. In addition to LabVIEW SignalExpress, USB data acquisition devices are compatible with the following versions (or later) of NI application software – LabVIEW 7.x, LabWindows™/CVI 7.x, or Measurement Studio 7.x. USB data acquisition modules are also compatible with Visual Studio .NET, C/C++, and Visual Basic 6.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This board is compatible with a variety of programming languages, including LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. LabVIEW provides the easiest integration with all of your NI hardware and is recommended to maximize your hardware investment.
