Data Translation introduced QuickDAQ 2013. The new software application supports all of Data Translation data acquisition modules. QuickDAQ 2013 has been designed to accommodate a wide variety of sensor types and various throughput speeds for our many OEM’s and end-users. Engineers can use one application software package for many measurement needs with no software changes. QuickDAQ 2013 is available for free. FFT Analysis and Advanced FFT Analysis add-ons are offered to build onto the capabilities of the base package.
Thanks to ADLINK Technology, engineers can download AD-Logger and DAQBench for free. AD-Logger is a ready-to-run data capture application. DAQBench provides ActiveX controls used for creating professional instrumentation applications using ActiveX development environments. AD-Logger and DAQBench are compatible with ADLINK’s full range of data acquisition modules and digitizers. Both tools are compatible with 32-bit Windows XP/7/8.
National Instruments UK and Ireland announce a seven-part Sensor Measurements Fundamentals Webcast Series. The first webinar in the series will cover the essentials of data acquisition and lay the groundwork for subsequent sessions. The rest of the online seminars will focus on specific sensor applications such as temperature, velocity or strain measurements. During each webcast, NI UK and Ireland engineers will present measurement fundamentals, from theory to practice. The first webcast will take place on Tuesday, December 11th.
Data Translation introduced the DT9837B ultra-high throughput USB data acquisition module for portable noise and vibration measurement. The DT9837B features simultaneously sampling (up to four 24-bit) and a sampling rate of up to 105.4 kHz samples per channel. The Data Translation module is self-powered via the USB connection to a PC or laptop — no external power supply is needed. The DT9837B USB module is ideal for portable sound and vibration field measurement and analysis applications. The DT9837B data acquisition module is priced at $1795 and ships immediately.
Measurement Computing Corporation (MCC) introduced MCC DAQ Software CD version 6.0 with 64-bit drivers and ULx (Universal Library Extensions) for National Instruments LabVIEW. The ULx for LabVIEW offers easy-to-use support for LabVIEW (versions 8.2.1 and later). The MCC DAQ Software CD version 6.0 is available for download. It ships with most Measurement Computing hardware products.
Data Translation introduced the DT8837 high performance Ethernet (LXI) data acquisition instrument module for sound and vibration measurement applications. The DT8837 samples up to four 24-bit IEPE accelerometer input channels independently at up to 52.7kHz per channel or 210kHz total throughput. In addition, the DT8837 offers a 24-bit stimulus output, and a 31-bit synchronized tachometer channel for data streams that are matched in time for field or laboratory use. The DT8837 is priced at $3995 and ships 6-8 weeks ARO.
