Measurement Computing's UL for LabVIEW Supports NI-DAQmx VIs

3/16/2005 - Measurement Computing's newest version of UL for LabVIEW, to be released in mid-April, will allow DAQ application developers to use MCC boards with NI-DAQmx VIs in addition to Traditional NI-DAQ and MCC VIs. Taking advantage of MCC's lower hardware pricing is easier than ever because users can now switch to MCC hardware without having to rewrite existing LabVIEW programs, or learn a new set of VIs.

The new NI-DAQmx compatible Universal Library® for LabVIEW 7.11 can be used with both NI and MCC hardware in the same application, and can support MCC VIs as well as NI-DAQ VIs—both Traditional and the new DAQmx.

This is an unusually timely release, because recent price increases on many of NI's E Series DAQ boards make the difference in price between comparable NI and MCC products quite significant—as much as 42 percent! To see a table of new price comparisons, visit:

According to Anthony Nygren, MCC's Vice President of Marketing, the company's support for legacy hardware and software and its now even larger price savings over National Instruments "demonstrate MCC's continuing commitment to keeping the cost of buying, deploying, and maintaining data acquisition systems as low as possible. When you buy a board from MCC, you know that you are going to be able to continue to buy that board at a low price, and are going to be able to continue to use it in your application, regardless of software upgrades."
