DAQiFi’s Nyquist 1 Is a Strong, Self-Contained Resolution for Wi-fi Knowledge Acquisition



Knowledge acquisition specialist DAQiFi is hoping to make your subsequent sensor venture less complicated to place along with the launch of the Nyquist 1, a standalone gadget designed to supply simple seize of analog or digital knowledge.

“DAQiFi Nyquist 1 is a self-contained, cell linked, battery powered, wi-fi knowledge acquisition gadget,” its creators clarify. “It’s good for normal knowledge acquisition functions the place economical, feature-rich DAQs are required. Nyquist is totally wi-fi, using a built-in li-ion battery for energy and an 802.11 Wi-Fi connection, permitting it to be deployed nearly anyplace and all over the place.”

The Nyquist 1 board, provided housed in a devoted casing to guard it within the subject, affords a powerful 16 analog inputs to at least one facet, eight of which might be mixed into 4 differential inputs, and 16 digital inputs/outputs to the opposite — all uncovered as screw terminals, permitting knowledge sources to be linked and disconnected with out cracking open the case.

Based on DAQiFi’s testing, the Nyquist 1 is able to dealing with 1kHz sampling charges per channel and 10kHz combination charge, and comes pre-calibrated — a significant promoting level over rival gadgets, which both don’t have any lab-suitable calibration providing or ask for added money for the service. Home windows and Android software program is included, whereas a microSD slot gives room for native storage. The corporate additionally guarantees full compatibility with “trade normal software program,” together with LabVIEW, Mathematica, and Node-RED.

“Apart from ease-of-use and wealthy function set,” DAQiFi says, “the [Nyquist 1] {hardware} is designed to be extremely strong. All its ports and electrical interfaces are protected in opposition to overvoltage, overcurrent, electrostatic discharge, and reverse polarity. The USB interface and inner lithium-ion battery are protected with robotically resetting polyfuses and are safeguarded in opposition to overvoltage, overcurrent, improper charging, and temperature extremes.”

The corporate has launched the Nyquist 1 on Crowd Provide at $199 with free worldwide transport; these feeling beneficiant pays $349 to participate within the firm’s “give one, get one” program and supply a board to a pupil or educational lab in want. All {hardware} is anticipated to ship in the direction of the top of February 2023, with 200 items already manufactured.

Whereas DAQiFi has pledged to launch supply code and design recordsdata for the Nyquist 1, on the time of writing the corporate had not made the repositories public.
