The National Instruments NI cDAQ-918x Series CompactDAQ Ethernet Chassis are NI CompactDAQ Gigabit Ethernet chassis and are available in 1, 4, and 8 slot configurations. These units are designed for remote or distributed sensor and electrical measurements. A single NI CompactDAQ chassis can measure up to 256 channels of sensor signals, analog I/O, digital I/O, and counter/timers with an Ethernet interface back to a host PC or laptop. By combining more than 50 sensor-specific NI C Series I/O modules with patented NI Signal Streaming technology, the NI CompactDAQ platform delivers high-speed data and ease of use in a flexible, mixed-measurement system. Modules are available for a variety of sensor measurements including thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), strain gages, load and pressure transducers, torque cells, accelerometers, flow meters, and microphones.
