Use the "Configure System" link above to configure an SCXI DAQ system based on this module.
The NI SCXI-1520 is an 8-channel universal strain gage input module that offers all of the features you need for simple or advanced strain measurements. With this single module, you can read signals from strain, force, torque, and pressure sensors. The SCXI-1520 includes an onboard reference for automatic calibration in changing environments. It offers a programmable amplifier and programmable 4-pole Butterworth filter on each channel. Each channel also has an independent 0 to 10 V programmable excitation source. In addition, the SCXI-1520 system offers a half-bridge completion resistor network in the module and a socketed 350 Ω quarter-bridge completion resistor in the NI SCXI-1314 terminal block. A 120 Ω quarter-bridge completion resistor is also included with the terminal block.
An SCXI chassis is required to house the SCXI modules. The NI SCXI-1000 chassis can hold up to four modules while the NI SCXI-1001 can hold up to 12. You can choose NI X Series, M Series, E Series, or S Series DAQ modules for controlling the chassis.
