Chameleon software is an intuitive configuration-based data acquisition tool, powered by NI LabVIEW system design software, for sensor measurements with the NI CompactDAQ platform. It has a simple and straightforward user interface so you can easily build a system to acquire static and dynamic signals without any programming. Chameleon software is designed to work with a variety of NI CompactDAQ chassis, including the new stand-alone system. This system features a built-in dual-core Intel processor and onboard storage to deliver high-performance processing and logging in a single, portable chassis.

The software provides acquisition and logging of mixed measurements including voltage, current, vibration, strain, and temperature. You can view live data in action, review logged data, and export data for analysis in LabVIEW, NI DIAdem, or Excel. Additional features include calculated channels, user-defined alarms, and triggered acquisition from analog or digital signals. With Chameleon, you can configure single-chassis systems or combine and synchronize multiple chassis for high-channel-count applications. You can even integrate with LabVIEW to automate data logging while taking advantage of custom user interfaces.

Chameleon has a proven track record with Northrop Grumman Company and Raytheon BBN Technologies for applications such as vibration monitoring, impact testing, and jet engine testing.
