Plant operators need to continuously measure bulk material levels/weight to make sure their processes are running safely, efficiently and without any bottlenecks. Measuring these levels allows operators to automate vessel filling/emptying logistics or verify that a process is using the right amount of material. How do you measure bulk material levels/weights in silos and hoppers? […]

The tool we most commonly use for real-time embedded process monitoring and control applications is the NI CompactRIO. These controllers allow us to embed algorithms that acquire and analyze high speed process sensor data and then output derived key performance indicators (KPIs) to other control systems. Most of the time, our customers also require us […]
The latest video in the ITM Live Demo series shows users how to configure an Ethernet/Network cDAQ or FieldDAQ chassis with NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI Max). One of the most common questions we get from iTestSystem users; How do I configure my network/ethernet cDAQ or FieldDAQ chassis? In this video, Chase Petzinger demonstrates […]
The NI-9242 single ended voltage input module can now be used with the latest version of iTestSystem (16.1). The NI-9242 C-Series module features three (3) voltage inputs plus one (1) neutral input, 24-bit resolution, 250V rms L-N, 400V rms L-L, and 50 kS/s/ch. The measurement range (250V rms L-N or 400V rms L-L) makes […]
In the latest release of iTestSystem (v 16.1), we are adding the NI-9246 current input module to the compatibility list. The NI-9246 features 3, 22 Arms continuous current inputs, 24-bit resolution, and 50 kS/s/ch in the C Series form factor. The measurement range (22 Arms ) makes it ideal for three phase current measurements from 1A […]
The latest video in the ITM Live Demo series shows the new sound level measurement capability of iTestSystem. In recent months, our customers have asked us to integrate sound level measurements into iTestSystem. With this new feature, iTestSystem can help you monitor construction site noise or measure whether your equipment meets ISO noise emission standards […]
We are excited to announce that a new version (16.1) of iTestSystem is available for download. This latest release provides engineers with a flexible sensor data collection and analysis platform ideal for long term endurance testing, vibration analysis, off -highway vehicle condition monitoring, sound level, and structural design validation. We have added and updated the […]
In iTestSystem use the MultiDAQ trigger function to automate data collection. Follow the steps below to enable and configure triggering. 1. Enable auto save 2. Enable triggering 3. Build a start trigger statement 4. Build a stop trigger statement 5. Start configured MultiDAQ 6. Let MultiDAQ collect your data.
Check out the article “Feeding the Next Generation of Product Development” in Machine Design magazine. In this article, ITM president Tim Carlier describes how engineers are collecting real-world data to get a true look at how their designs are used in the field, and how to design a better machine. By utilizing iTestSystem and its […]
Edit multiple channels at once by using excel. Highlight the Channels item in the configuration tree. Export the channels to a CSV file. Open the CSV file in Microsoft Excel, then edit and save. Import the edited CSV file to update the configuration file with the channel changes.
