High-channel-count data logging at a lower priceNational Instruments is launching a new low-cost 6.5-digit digital multimeter for PXIdigital, the NI PXI-4065. The multimeter's low price, along with its 6.5-digit performance, is said to offer a new entry point for reliable, high-channel-count data logging measurement systems.

Engineers can combine the new multimeter with more than 150 available NI PXI switch configurations in the low-cost NI PXI-1033 integrated chassis and controller to create high-channel-count, 6.5-digit data logging systems for £2500 (EUR3600) for up to 48 channels and £7400 (EUR11,000) for up to 784 channels. For further system expansion, engineers can add 3000 channels with each additional 18-slot PXI chassis.

Using the NI-DMM driver software that comes with the PXI-4065 digital multimeter, engineers can build high-channel-count data logging systems in seconds using National Instruments LabVIEW SignalExpress. For automated test systems, NI 4065 digital multimeters are also compatible with NI TestStand, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI and Measurement Studio development environments, offering a variety of options for engineers to define and control their measurements via software.

The PXI-4065 digital multimeter uses the same technology as the existing NI PCI-4065 and NI PCIe-4065 digital multimeters, offering 6.5 digits of resolution at up to 10 readings per second and up to 3000 readings per second at lower resolutions. With +/-300V DC/Vrms of isolation, current measurements up to 3A and two- or four-wire resistance measurements, NI 4065 digital multimeters are truly versatile. For higher performance, engineers can configure systems with the existing family of NI 407x FlexDMM devices that deliver measurement speed, accuracy and resolution. Engineers can also integrate the new multimeters with modular power supplies and precision sources from National Instruments to build complete precision DC measurement systems.
