National Instruments (NI) has added to its line of digital multimeters (DMMs) new low-cost 6.5-digit DMMs for PCIe and PCI. The PCIe-4065 DMM, said to be the first DMM available on the PCIe bus, and the PCI-4065 DMM offer measurements of DC or AC voltage/current, 2- and 4-wire resistance and diode test suitable for educational laboratories, cost-conscious test and measurement facilities and OEMs who embed DC or AC measurements into an end-product or test system. These DMMs complement the NI 407x series of 6.5-digit and 7.5-digit FlexDMM devices designed for higher-performance test and measurement requirements.

With NI's 4065 DMMs, engineers can take advantage of the wide availability of PCI and PCIe slots found in desktop computers, industrial PCs or expansion chassis to take DMM measurements in any environmentfrom a laboratory benchtop to a production test rack.

With the NI-DMM Soft Front Panel and DMM/Switch Express VI software, engineers can either mimic benchtop DMM displays or build high-channel-count data-logging systems in seconds using NI SignalExpress. For automated test systems, NI 4065 DMMs are also compatible with NI TestStand, NI LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI and Measurement Studio. With 300Vdc/Vrms of isolation, current measurements up to 3A and 2- or 4-wire resistance measurements, NI 4065 DMMs offer a complete multimeter solution for basic 6.5-digit measurement needs.

NI 4065 DMMs add to the existing family of NI DMM products that deliver industry-leading measurement accuracy and resolution. Engineers can integrate the new DMMs with modular power supplies, precision sources and switch modules from NI to build complete precision DC measurement systems.

The NI 4065 DMMs represent the latest in a series of new NI products built on the PCIe platforms. While the NI PCIe-4065 has no additional capabilities compared to the PCI version, it offers engineers measurement capability on the latest standard PC bus to ensure long-term compatibility for their test and measurement applications.
