NI Data Acquisition and Control


myDAQ is a small portable data acquisition system, which connects to your computer with a USB cable. It provides a portal into the analog or digital world of measurement and control. Build a favorite circuit on a breadboard and use the software instruments like the Digital Multimeter or oscilloscope to test and debug your circuit. myDAQ provides +15, -15 and +5 voltage sources to power your circuit. Design a LabVIEW program with LabVIEW Student Edition to help control your experiment. All you need is your interface circuit, a myDAQ, and a computer. If the computer is a laptop, then the whole test bed is portable.

NI myDAQ pack consists of:

  • NI ELVISmx & NI DAQmx 
  • LabVIEW Evaluation (30 day) 
  • Multisim Evaluation (30 day) 
  • Device
  • USB Cable
  • DMM Probes
  • Audio cable (3.5mm)
  • Screw terminal connector 
  • NI screwdriver
