They are designed to save a customer’s time and money in temperature monitoring, reliability testing and product-lifecycle evaluation
element14, an Avnet Company and global distributor of electronic components, products and solutions, has introduced new configuration-based solutions featuring high-quality data acquisition software and hardware from NI coupled with market-leading sensors from Omega. The competitively priced solutions reduce the need to research system compatibility, saving customers time and money in temperature monitoring, reliability testing and product-lifecycle evaluation.
element14’s team of test and measurement experts have paired commonly used hardware and software combinations featuring NI and Omega products to guarantee system compatibility and ease the product selection process. By using the recommended testing setups, engineers can simulate real-life environments to ensure product specifications, such as longer life and higher reliability, are achieved. element14 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.
Key features and benefits:
- Interchangeability: The modular, 1-slot chassis allows the measurement system to be easily changed by simply 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.
- User-friendly: The 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 metadata.
- Compatibility: 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.
“element14’s test and measurement offering are centred around customer-focused support at every stage, whether it’s bringing the very best products from leading suppliers to market or, in this case, providing value add services to our customers. We are very excited about the wide range of applications we can service through our partnership with NI,” said James McGregor, Global Head of Test, Tools and Production Supplies, at element14.
The sensors-to-software solutions featuring NI and Omega are available for fast delivery from Farnell in EMEA, element14 in APAC and Newark in North America.
