The SensorDAQ interface is perfect for teaching NI LabVIEW or for building sensor-control student projects using NI LabVIEW software.

Included are four channels for a quick and easy way to add Vernier sensors without external wiring or signal conditioning. There is a screw terminal for digital I/O, analog output, counter, +5 Volt line, and 2 more analog inputs to build circuits, create custom sensors, control RC servo motors, turn on electronic devices, and more.

  • Connect over 55 Vernier analog and digital sensors
  • Use with NI LabVIEW software version 2009 or newer (not included)
  • Screw terminal connector provides 12 auxiliary channels

Compatibility Notes

  1. Requires advanced programming for data collection
  2. Requires a Motion Detector Cable to connect to a DIG port on the interface
  3. You can only read the raw count/raw voltage output by this sensor. You must do the programming to convert to proper sensor units.
  4. Requires a Heart Rate Receiver to connect to an interface
  5. Use with an electrode such as a pH Sensor, Conductivity Probe, or ORP Sensor.
