Company: National Instruments
The NI cDAQ-9191 is a 1-slot NI CompactDAQ chassis with Wi-Fi communication that is combined with an NI C Series measurement module to create a small, portable data acquisition device. Choose simulated device to evaluate the app without actual hardware:
- Automatically discover devices on your local subnet
- Acquire continuously or a finite number of samples
- Pinch the graph to zoom in on a signal
- Email an image of the graph and data in a .CSV file.
iOS 6.0+, Android 2.3.3+
This app makes it easy for field service technicians to troubleshoot Danfoss Turbocor compressor issues on-site with instant access to troubleshooting data and quick reference charts. Field service technicians can use it to identify symptoms, work through the possible causes, and find remedies through suggested required actions.
The app contains more than 300 important mechanical engineering formulas, conversion formulas, as well as 70 area formulas. Major areas covered include: actuators bearings, belts, boiler, brakes, clutches, elevators, gears, fluid power, heat transfer, internal combustion, kinetic energy, metalworking, plates, plumbs, power plants, refrigeration, shafts springs, and vehicle drive.
