Chameleon from PVI Systems is an intuitive and easy-to-use yet powerful turnkey DAQ program developed to take full advantage of hardware from NI. You can have your systems up and running in minutes to acquire static and dynamic signals from a variety of sensor types without any programming. Chameleon eliminates the cost and risk of developing and maintaining custom DAQ applications.

Use the software to acquire and log mixed measurements including voltage, current, vibration, strain, and temperature. Connected hardware is automatically detected by the software, which simplifies channel configuration. You can view live data, review logged data, and export data for analysis.

Additional features include calculated (virtual) channels, user-defined alarms, and triggered acquisition from analog or digital signals with pretriggered samples.

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.
