The National Instruments Industrial M Series multifunction data acquisition (DAQ) devices offer isolated analog and digital measurement channels for added reliability. They combine the safety and performance benefits of isolation with high-performance timing, amplification, and calibration technologies to offer accurate measurements and precise control.

Isolation provides:
1. Safety from high-voltage transients
2. Greater common-mode rejection ratios (CMRR)
3. Removal of ground loops
4. 4-20 mA current loops

Industrial M Series devices are ideal for test, measurement, control, and design applications in environments with high voltages and electrical noise. You can use Industrial M Series devices for measurement, control, and design applications including measuring and controlling voltages and process currents from analog and digital sensors, transducers, relays, motors, valves, pumps, and other actuators.

The Industrial M Series family of devices incorporates advanced M Series technologies including the NI-STC 2 system controller, NI-PGIA 2 programmable instrumentation amplifier, and NI-MCal calibration technology to increase performance and accuracy. To learn more about M Series technologies, please refer to the data sheet and specifications.

Driver Software
M Series devices work with multiple OSs using three driver software options – NI-DAQmx, NI-DAQmx Base, and the Measurement Hardware DDK. Browse the information in the Resources tab to learn more about and download driver software. M Series devices are not compatible with the traditional NI-DAQ (Legacy) driver.

Application Software
With NI LabVIEW, you can create custom DAQ applications with the ease of graphical programming and power of more than 500 analysis functions. LabVIEW Full and Professional Development Systems include LabVIEW SignalExpress for interactive data logging. M Series 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; LabVIEW SignalExpress 1.x; or LabVIEW with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module 7.1. M Series DAQ devices are also compatible with ANSI C/C++, C#, Visual Studio .NET and Visual Basic 6.0.

No part number and pricing information available for NI M Series - Industrial Multifunction DAQ.
