USB DAQ Device Measures Data From Thermocouple

National Instruments (NI) has launched a USB data-acquisition (DAQ) device that measures and records temperature data from a thermocouple. The USB-TC01 combines plug-and-play setup with the capabilities and features of NI DAQ products. The thermocouple measurement device features NI InstantDAQ technology, which helps customers to take temperature measurements with no setup time or driver software installation.

The USB-TC01 features a standard mini-plug connector that helps customers use different thermocouples to meet their specific application needs. Priced at GBP89, the device is said to be suitable for all types of laboratories. Readers can see a demonstration of the USB-TC01 in a video, entitled 'NI USB-TC01 with NI InstantDAQ Technology', on the company's website. The device offers instant setup for various temperature applications for use in scientific laboratories; heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) units; cryogenics; industrial ovens and furnaces; engine exhaust and combustion systems; and building monitoring.

In addition to saving time and resources in system setup, the new device also exhibits the overall accuracy and reliability of more complex measurement systems. With traditional standalone data loggers, measurements are made independently of the PC so data can only be viewed offline. The USB-TC01 is always connected to the PC, so customers can take live measurements and view results displayed instantly on the PC monitor.

Customers also have the option to expand upon the basic functionality of the USB-TC01 by downloading additional, free, ready-to-run applications from the NI website. Customers can also build their own applications by combining the USB-TC01 with the NI Labview graphical system design software and the NI-DAQmx driver software.
