The NI USB-6009 provides basic DAQ functionality for applications such as simple data logging, portable measurements, and academic lab experiments. It is affordable for student use and powerful enough for more sophisticated measurement applications. For Mac OS X and Linux users, download the NI-DAQmx Base driver software and program the USB-6009 with NI LabVIEW or C.
To supplement simulation, measurement, and automation theory courses with practical experiments, NI developed a USB-6009 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. See the Resources tab 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 DAQ devices.
USB DAQ modules 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.
