In less than 5 minutes after installing DAQami and plugging in a DAQ device, you can create an automatic configuration and acquire live data, MCC noted in a release.

Data can be acquired in volts and degrees, as well as custom units with linear scaling. Channels can be viewed on any combination of scalar, strip, and block displays. Once data is acquired and logged, you can use DAQami to review the saved data file.

The DAQami user interface is flexible and provides the ability to customize display size and location, zoom factor, and channel/trace colors. You can configure MCC DAQ hardware within the application, selecting sam­pling rate, start and stop triggers, and sample count.

DAQami currently supports over 40 MCC hardware devices including the $99 100-ksps USB-201 DAQ device.

DAQami costs $49 when purchased with MCC DAQ hardware.
