The NI cDAQ-9184 is a 4-slot NI CompactDAQ Ethernet chassis designed for remote or distributed sensor and electrical measurements. A single NI CompactDAQ chassis can measure up to 128 channels of electrical, physical, mechanical, or acoustic signals. By combining more than 50 sensor-specific NI C Series I/O modules with patented NI Signal Streaming technology, the NI CompactDAQ platform delivers high-speed data and ease of use in a flexible, mixed-measurement system.

Modules are available for a variety of sensor measurements including thermocouples, RTDs, strain gages, load and pressure transducers, torque cells, accelerometers, flow meters, and microphones. NI CompactDAQ systems combine sensor measurements with voltage, current, and digital signals to create custom, mixed-measurement systems with a single Ethernet interface back to a host PC or laptop.

The cDAQ-9184 has four 32-bit general-purpose counter/timers built in. You can access these counters through a parallel digital C Series module such as the NI 9401 or NI 9402 for applications that involve quadrature encoders, PWM, event counting, pulse train generation, and period or frequency measurement.

The cDAQ-9184 chassis is shipped with the following:
-AC/DC converter that plugs directly into the chassis
-NI-DAQmx driver DVD
-NI screwdriver (flat and Phillips head)
-NI cDAQ-9184 Quick Start poster

Power cord sold separately.

The NI-DAQmx driver is shipped with every chassis and includes the following:
-LabVIEW SignalExpress LE for simple data-logging applications
-Programming support for NI LabVIEW, ANSI C/C++, C#, and Visual Basic .NET
-DAQ Assistant code generation for LabVIEW, LabWindows™/CVI, and Measurement Studio
-Example programs for all supported languages
-NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) for system configuration and test
