The NI USB-6008 provides basic DAQ 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 USB-6008 with the included ready-to-run data logger software to begin taking basic measurements in minutes, or program it using NI 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 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 counts, consider the NI USB-6210 and NI USB-6211 high-performance USB DAQ devices.
USB DAQ 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 DAQ modules are also compatible with Visual Studio .NET, C/C++, and Visual Basic 6.0.
