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?
Need some verification with daq program.
I have one force sensor that connectd with my usb daq device. with this force sensor, unknown object is connected(hanging) and i want to find the mass of this object (F=ma) so i am taking continous sample and generate waveform graph. After the scaling, my waveform will be in Newton unit.
my question is: if i take RMS of this waveform(1d Array data point) and divide by g (9.8 m/s2) then whatever value come is my correct mass? (F=ma).
Thank you in advance
i have a question in basic understanding of update rate sample rate samples per buffer and cycles per buffer.
i have DAQ 6343 and electronic circuit.
i'm using AO0 for generation sine wave at these frequencies 10Hz, 100Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 3kHz this signal enters to electronic circuit.
and after conversion i must to measure two outputs of this circuit by AI2 and AI3.
from my understanding of tech spec of the daq analog output update rate is 900kS/s and analog input update rate is 500kS/s
as i understand if i have freq = 3kHz the maximum sample rate per buffer is 300 samples
and if i have freq = 10Hz i can generate this signal with 90000 samples per buffer?
for analog input the formula is the same?
that meaning of cycles per buffer?
which sample rate of AI i need to setup to measure data fast and accurately?
thanks for answers
My test group has decided to start using OOP (beyond LVOOP I hope).
The question is should we use an OOP tool and which one: GOOP/GDS or G#?
I'm quite biased as I have used GOOP for a number of years, but I'm trying make fair investigation. I also realize that the StarUML plug-in in G# could be very useful.
Has anyone made or seen a comparison between GOOP and G#?
Or do you have an own opinion?
(Searching for the text "G#" isn't that easy...)
