Farnell launches new sensors-to-software solutions featuring NI and Omega
The new solutions from Farnell are designed to save customers time and money in temperature monitoring, reliability testing and product-lifecycle evaluation.
Farnell, 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. Farnell is the only global distributor offering these specific solutions.
Farnell’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 set ups, engineers can simulate real-life environments to ensure product specifications, such as a longer life and higher reliability, are achieved. Farnell 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.
NI is a market leading manufacturer of automated test and measurement systems that help engineers solve the world’s toughest challenges. The company’s software-connected systems offer limitless opportunities and can easily integrate existing tools and workflows, leveraging data across multiple applications to drive results. All of Farnell’s sensors-to-software solutions feature NI’s quality data acquisition hardware and FlexLogger data logging software, which are ideal for reliability testing and product-lifecycle evaluation applications.
Key features and benefits include:
- 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 meta data.
- 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.
James McGregor, Global Head of Test, Tools and Production Supplies, at Farnell said: “Farnell’s test and measurement offering is 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.”
