Hardware Options to Customize Your DAQ System

MiDAS DA is powerful software that supports the most widely used lines of data acquisition hardware from National Instruments - the world's largest supplier of DAQ hardware. MiDAS DA also works with high-speed cameras from manufacturers such as Olympus, Vision Research, Fastec, AOS, IDT/Redlake, Photron, Mikrotron, and NAC.

Pre-packaged DAQ Hardware Kits

The easiest way to get started with video/data collection is to buy a pre-packaged DAQ kit from Xcitex. We provide the most popular DAQ combinations, so you don't have to do the research. Our kits contain fully warranted National Instruments hardware for PCI, PCI Express and USB bus platforms with up to 64 channels of data collection. We install the jumpers for you and apply labels for quick and easy connections. MiDAS DA uses NI-DAQmx integration to support USB hardware, the leading choice of DAQ customers. When you receive your kit, just make four BNC connections and you're ready to record.
