NI Extends Portable Measurement Performance with USB Digitisers and a Digital Multimeter
News Release from:
07 February 2008
National Instruments has announced the release of the NI USB-5132/5133 digitisers and the NI USB-4065 6½-digit digital multimeter (DMM). These small, lightweight instruments feature bus-powered and plug-and-play operation, which makes them ideal for portable, benchtop and OEM applications. They are also shipped with NI LabVIEW SignalExpress LE, an interactive measurement workbench for quickly acquiring, analysing and presenting data, with no programming required.
The USB-5132/5133 50 MS/s and 100 MS/s digitisers offer two simultaneously sampled channels with 8-bit resolution. These USB digitisers feature 10 input ranges from 40 mV to 40 V and programmable DC offset, and come standard with 4 MB/ch of onboard memory for measurements requiring extended data captures. The USB-4065 DMM offers 6½ digits of resolution at up to 10 readings per second and up to 3,000 readings per second at lower resolutions. With ±300 V of isolation, current measurements up to 3 A and 2- or 4-wire resistance measurements, the USB-4065 offers a complete multimeter solution for portable 6½-digit measurement needs.
Each of these instruments includes its own soft front panel, which provides an interactive, familiar interface to get up and running quickly. For data logging applications, engineers can easily combine the USB-5132/5133 digitisers or the USB-4065 6 ½-digit DMM with LabVIEW SignalExpress measurement software. Together, this intuitive software and the bus-powered architecture of these new instruments are extending the ease-of-use and performance of portable measurements.
