National Instruments, the technological company which aims to accelerate productivity, innovation and discovery made an announcement launching a new product worldwide. National Instruments has launched an all-in-one instrument called as Virtualbench.
Virtualbench integrates a mixed-signal oscilloscope, function generator, digital multimeter, programmable DC power supply and digital I/O. The newly launched device provides the above mentioned functionality and a really affordable price which is a major factor as most of the scientists are not able to pursue their research due to financial constraints. Users interact with VirtualBench through software applications that run on PCs or iPads, which will be coming out later this summer.
“We are building on what NI does best, which is our software-based approach to test and measurement,” said Chad Chesney, Director of Data Acquisition Marketing at NI. “VirtualBench’s software user experience is more intuitive, creating efficiencies that go above and beyond simply having these five devices in a single device.”
Key Benefits of Virtualbench:
- Takes up minimal space on a desktop or benchtop
- Simplifies instrument configuration through consistent, user-friendly interfaces
- Offers new capability and convenience with a consolidated view of multiple instruments, visualization on larger displays and quick functionality to save data and screenshots
- Integrates seamlessly with LabVIEW system design software
The firm’s long-term vision and focus is on improving society through its technology which supports the success of its customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders. Launching a product like Virtualbench showcases how they will achieve the same within the limited time contraints.
