Industrial DAQ Systems

Industrial data acquisition hardware is the backbone of data-driven operations in manufacturing and production industries, as they’re designed to collect, analyze, and store data from various sources, including sensors, instruments, and production equipment.

The primary function of an industrial DAQ System is to convert analog and digital signals into time-stamped digital data for real-time monitoring, control, and data analysis. This digital data is crucial for the further optimization of manufacturing and production processes, ensuring exceptional quality control and enhancing overall operational efficiency while cutting down on production costs.

Features of Industrial Data Acquisition Systems

Industrial data acquisition systems are characterized by their durability, robustness, and high performance. KEYENCE’s NR-X Series multi-input data logger is the smallest and lightest data logger in its class and offers plenty of portability without sacrificing durability or robustness.

Key features associated with NR-X Series multi-input DAQ include:

  • High-Speed Data Processing: Industrial DAQ systems are capable of handling vast volumes of data from multiple sources simultaneously, which adds a layer of versatility.
  • Scalability and Modularity: They’re easily expanded to accommodate additional sensors and/or integrate with existing industrial manufacturing architectures. Additionally, they can measure several different measurements simultaneously via modular measurement units that attach to the main unit.
  • Real-Time Monitoring: Industrial data acquisition systems come equipped with real-time monitoring capabilities. This enables immediate adjustment to the manufacturing process to enhance its efficiency and overall productivity or trigger additional quality control checks or other actions.
  • Data Accuracy and Reliability: Industrial DAQ systems are incredibly accurate and reliable. This ensures precise data collection and processing, which is important for quality control and automated decision-making processes.
  • User-Friendly Interface: This simplifies the complexities associated with data management. Furthermore, USB, LAN or Wireless LAN can be used to interface with the PC for additional processing and data storage.
