National Instruments Releases Wireless I/O for NI CompactRIO

AUSTIN, Texas, --

News Highlights

-- Plug directly into any CompactRIO chassis for wireless connectivity to distributed WSN measurement nodes with new WSN C Series gateway

-- Use new WSN serial nodes for wireless, programmable interface to thousands of sensors and instruments

-- Create complete wired and wireless measurement control systems with LabVIEW that are ideal for applications including environment monitoring, industrial measurements and control, and energy monitoring

National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI) today announced a new wireless gateway and two new measurement nodes that extend the capabilities of the NI wireless sensor network (WSN) platform and illustrate the company's commitment to wireless measurement technology. With NI LabVIEW system design software, engineers can easily integrate wired and wireless measurement and control systems and deploy autonomous programs to WSN nodes that perform local control, data analysis and event-based alarming or notification.


"Some of the world's most challenging applications require a solution that combines both wired and wireless measurement and control systems," said Jamie Smith, director of embedded systems product marketing for NI. "With the new WSN C Series gateway, NI is one of the only companies that can offer a complete, reconfigurable platform for these hybrid systems."
