Partners Ready to Pre-Install NI LabVIEW and Data Acquisition Hardware

11/13/2003 - National Instruments announced the Measurement Ready Systems Partner Program, a collaborative effort between NI and leading specialized computer vendors to create data acquisition systems built with NI LabVIEW software and NI data acquisition (DAQ) hardware. With NI software and hardware preinstalled on industrial, rugged and portable computers, engineers and scientists can use one convenient, prepackaged system to take accurate temperature, pressure, strain and voltage measurements in harsh environments.

"Engineers use our rugged notebooks in outdoor environments to measure temperature and vibration in test vehicles and military tanks," said Linda Talcott, marketing director at AMREL, a Measurement Ready Systems Partner that manufactures rugged, mobile computing solutions. "By including LabVIEW on all AMREL computers, our customers can experience increased efficiency in their application development."

In addition to the Measurement Ready Systems Partner Program, National Instruments created the Measurement Ready Systems Advisor, a Web-based search tool that helps engineers find the best portable computer for their measurement application. With this advisor, engineers can select a computer by system platform or individual specifications, including extended temperature range, shock and vibration specifications and humidity range.

"National Instruments is committed to helping our customers select the best tools that work with our DAQ measurement products," said John Hanks, National Instruments vision and measurements platform manager. "With the Measurement Ready Systems Advisor, engineers can select compatible tools from specialized industry vendors to create the best measurement system for their application needs."
