LAVA users, We are looking for alternatives for NI DAQ devices for industrial automation. Since NI has its devices mostly focused on advanced/high speed/high precison data acquisition/processing its prices are inadequate to simple automation tasks. I would also say that NI PC based daq systems are expensive if need to be distributed systems (found this but still relatively expensive cRIO required). Just now we need to extend our compactDAQ based system with two DIO modules. We even have free chassis slots for this, but station that needs this IOs is few meters away from PC. How easier would it be if we could use single ethernet cable.. Ofcourse we can add another small cDAQ (what we probably going to do) but this is slightly expensive solution for our customer. Does anyone have some experience with 3rd party solutions? Any known daq devices vendors? Standalone ethernet daq modules? Regards, Zyga
