By CIOReview | Thursday, August 13, 2015

AUSTIN, TX: Providers of platform based Engineering solutions, National Instruments (NI) release an all new range of hardware and software annexations to aid Engineers in data management solutions to make smarter measurements. The new release includes new 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ controllers featuring quad-core processing, a new 14-slot USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis, DIAdem 2015 and DataFinder Server Edition 2015.

The new 4- and 8-slot CompactDAQ comes with Intel Atom quad-core 1.91 GHz E3845 processors, programmable with new LabVIEW 2015 system design software, enabling engineers and scientists to customize data acquisition systems to add functionality like processing, intelligence and control. The new controllers are compatible with Windows Embedded 7 or NI Linux Real-Time, and include 32 GB of nonvolatile storage and removable SD storage to create smarter data logging and embedded monitoring applications.

The USB 3.0 CompactDAQ Chassis on the other hand would aid users in scaling their measurement systems to higher-channel-count applications without compromising transfer speed. With a 14-slot expansion capacity and USB 3.0 streaming capabilities, the new CompactDAQ Chassis and LabVIEW software can handle current data acquisition needs and easily adapt to meet future needs in a single system.

NI is releasing DIAdem 2015 as 64-bit software to empower users to load and analyze more data and thereby aid them in making critical data-driven decisions for managing and analyzing big data.

DataFinder Server Edition 2015 is a utility to deliver multistep querying that can be sent out to a global federation of servers to find the data users need to analyze in seconds.
