CompactDAQ controllers offer high-performance embedded measurement and logging with a built-in dual-core Intel processor for acquiring data, performing online analysis, and conducting stand-alone data logging. With this platform, you can customize a complete measurement system using LabVIEW system design software or take advantage of more than 850 companies in the NI Alliance Partner Network for a custom turnkey data-logging solution.

NI C Series I/O modules are available for a variety of sensor measurements including thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors, strain gages, and load and pressure transducers. Each is hot-swappable and autodetectable for simplified installation.

NI-DAQmx driver software is shipped with every chassis and includes the following:
-API for 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
-Measurement & Automation Explorer for system configuration and test
