The NI 9214 Measurement System measures 16 thermocouple channels at 68 S/s with 24-bit resolution, sending data to a host PC over USB, Ethernet or 802.11 Wi-Fi.
Measurement Bundle Overview
The hardware for an NI CompactDAQ single measurement bundle consists of a USB, Ethernet, or 802.11 Wi-Fi chassis and one of over 50 NI C Series measurement-specific modules. These small rugged bundles are ideal for portable or distributed measurements.
The chassis controls the timing for the module and handles communication with the PC over the USB, Ethernet, or 802.11 Wi-Fi bus. Additionally, all NI CompactDAQ chassis include four counter/timers that you can access through a digital I/O module like the NI 9401.
The NI 9214 is a high-density thermocouple module for NI C Series carriers designed for higher-channel-count systems that need higher accuracy than the NI 9213 offers.
The NI 9214 has several features that increase overall accuracy including the following:
-Front-mounting metal terminal block (NI TB-9214)
-Several cold-junction compensation (CJC) sensors in the terminal block
-Component layout to minimize thermal gradients
Each shipping kit contains the following:
-NI 9214 module with spring terminal connectivity
-TB-9214 front-mounting terminal block
