National Instruments released two new versions of its DAQPad-6015 plug-and-play, multifunction data acquisition (DAQ) device for USB. According to the press release, engineers and scientists can use NI SCC signal conditioning devices with the new DAQPad-6015 mass termination version to measure a wide range of sensor and high-voltage signals up to 100Vdc. The NI SCC signal conditioning carriers fit neatly on top of the DAQPad-6015 to create a portable, customizable DAQ system with up to 300V Cat II isolation per module, said NI.

And since the DAQPad-6015 connects to SCC signal conditioning carriers such as the SC-2345 and SC-2350 modules for transducer electronic data sheets (TEDS), engineers can reduce system setup time by taking advantage of USB plug-and-play features and smart sensor technology, added the company. Engineers can use the SCC carriers to select their sensor or signal conditioning types, as well as their direct connectivity types on a per-channel basis.

The combined DAQPad-6015 and SCC system is designed for applications requiring a laptop for portability because it connects via USB to any laptop and provides a broad range of measurements in the field. For portable applications that do not require signal conditioning, the BNC connector version of the DAQPad-6015 is useful for portable, quick signal connection and disconnection.

All DAQPad-6015 versions offer sixteen 16bit AI channels, two AO channels and eight DIO channels. They also include NI-DAQmx measurement services software, and are compatible with NI LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio for Visual Studio .NET and other USB data acquisition devices.
