At present more than 100 C Series plug-in modules from National Instruments and third-party companies are available. Engineers and scientists can use all C Series modules with NI LabVIEW software.
With more than 50 modules from NI, 50 third-party modules and a multitude of chassis available, there are numerous configuration options to address a wide variety of measurement and embedded control needs. Engineers and scientists can insert NI C Series modules into any of the C Series family of chassis including NI CompactDAQ, NI CompactRIO and the NI R Series expansion chassis to create a variety of mixed measurement systems.
NI CompactDAQ USB chassis provides the plug-and-play simplicity of USB to sensor and electrical measurements on the benchtop, in the field and on the production line.
Using NI CompactRIO, engineers and scientists can rapidly design and prototype advanced control and embedded devices on hardware such as CompactRIO and quickly deploy their systems on the CompactRIO integrated systems or NI Single-Board RIO hardware.
“Reaching 100 C Series modules is a big milestone and a powerful testament to the popularity and flexibility of the C Series platform,” said John Hanks, vice president of industrial and embedded product lines at National Instruments. “With the NI and third-party modules, customers are building sophisticated systems in record time compared to traditional methods.”
