The Student Data Acquisition Device is a single-channel, USB-powered measurement device for use with resistive strain gages (strain gauges). Internal bridge completion supports full-, half-, and quarter-bridge configurations.
This device is designed for use in applications where a convenient, low-cost, easy-to-use strain gage (strain gauge) measurement is required. It is ideal for classroom environments or gage installation verification.
Operation of the StudentDAQ is performed with commands sent via a USB connection. User-friendly application software is provided to control the StudentDAQ with a Microsoft® Windows®-based personal computer. Complete source code, written in National Instruments® LabVIEW® is provided. A .NET interface is also included.
The integrated RJ-45 jack simplifies strain gage (strain gauge) connection. Providing a robust and stable connection, one RJ-45 plug is included, which is easily attached to 326-DFV cable using a standard RJ-45 crimp tool.
