Farnell launches sensors-to-software solutions featuring NI and Omega
Farnell has introduced configuration-based solutions featuring high-quality data acquisition software and hardware from NI coupled with sensors from Omega.
The modular, 1-slot chassis allows the measurement system to be easily changed by exchanging modules for different applications. The chassis and software can be reused with any of the 80+ other CompactDAQ compatible C Series modules from NI.
NI’s FlexLogger data logging software can configure a custom user interface with graphs, charts, and alarm indicators. The system can test numerous variables at once, speeding up the decision-making process when compared with equivalent software systems where only one variable is measured at any given time.
Users can set trigger conditions for alarms and logging along with the ability to add operator input panels to capture test meta data.
Test results can be saved in file formats for Excel (.csv) or in the open binary standard .tdms for use with any in-house software.
The solutions reduce the need to research system compatibility. Farnell says it is the only global distributor offering these specific solutions and all Farnell’s sensors-to-software solutions feature NI’s data acquisition hardware and FlexLogger data logging software which suit reliability testing and product-lifecycle evaluation applications.
NI manufactures automated test and measurement systems. The company’s software-connected systems can integrate existing tools and workflows, leveraging data across multiple applications to drive results.
Farnell’s team of test and measurement experts have paired commonly used hardware and software combinations featuring NI and Omega products to ensure system compatibility and ease the product selection process. By using the recommended testing set ups, engineers can simulate real-life environments to ensure product specifications, such as a longer life and higher reliability, are achieved. Farnell also offers bespoke customisation services and technical support from its team of in-house experts to meet the individual needs of customers and provide faster access to information for troubleshooting.
