National Instruments has released the NI USB-5132/5133 digitizers and the NI USB-4065 6.5-digit digital multimeter (DMM). These small, lightweight instruments feature bus-powered and plug-and-play operation, which make them suitable for portable, benchtop and OEM applications. They are shipped with NI LabVIEW SignalExpress LE interactive measurement workbench software for acquiring, analyzing and presenting data with no programming required.

The USB-5132/5133 50MSps and 100MSps digitizers offer two simultaneously sampled channels with 8bit resolution. These USB digitizers feature 10 input ranges from 40mV to 40V and programmable DC offset, and come standard with 4MB per channel of onboard memory for measurements requiring extended data captures.

The USB-4065 DMM offers 6.5 digits of resolution at up to 10 readings per second and up to 3,000 readings per second at lower resolutions. With 300V of isolation, current measurements up to 3A and 2- or 4-wire resistance measurements, the USB-4065 offers a complete multimeter solution for portable 6.5-digit measurement needs.

Each of these instruments includes its own soft front panel. For data-logging applications, engineers can combine the USB-5132/5133 digitizers and the USB-4065 6.5-digit DMM with LabVIEW SignalExpress measurement software. Together, the software and the bus-powered architecture of these new instruments are extending the ease of use and performance of portable measurements, said NI.

Pricing for the NI USB-5132 starts at $800; the NI USB-5133 at $1,199 and the NI USB-4065 at $1,299.
