The module features high speed and resolution that suit a variety of applications such as:
- Highly transient signal acquisition
- Ballistics and impact testing
- High-energy physics
- Ultrasonic and sonar testing

Application Software
With NI LabVIEW software, you can create custom data acquisition applications with the ease of graphical programming and power of more than 500 analysis functions and advanced programming tools. Every copy of LabVIEW also includes LabVIEW SignalExpress interactive data-logging software.

NI-DAQmx Driver Software
NI-DAQmx driver software goes far beyond a basic data acquisition driver to deliver increased productivity and performance in data acquisition and control application development. NI-DAQmx controls every aspect of your data acquisition system, from configuration, to programming, to low-level operating system and device control. Quickly gather real-world data with measurement-ready virtual channels and the DAQ Assistant. Build your applications with measurement-specific VIs, functions, and data types. Reliably make your measurements faster with optimized DMA data transfer and single-point I/O.

The NI PXIe-6124 is RoHS compliant. For certification information on NI hardware, visit
