National Instrument's NI myDAQ is designed to give students the ability to work on engineering course work and experiment with projects hands-on anywhere, anytime. The NI myDAQ is a high-quality instrumentation device that gives students the power to prototype systems and test circuits outside of the classroom while improving comprehension with continuous reinforcement.
Use the pH Sensor just as you would a traditional pH meter with the additional advantages of automated data collection, graphing, and data analysis. Typical activities using our pH sensor include:
The Dissolved Oxygen Probe is great for biology, chemistry, ecology, or integrated science courses. It can be used to perform a wide variety of experiments to determine changes in dissolved oxygen levels, one of the primary indicators of the quality of an aquatic environment.
The Goniometer can be used to measure the dynamic motion of a limb during different types of physical activity.
The Low-g Accelerometer is the best choice for most acceleration experiments, including Newton’s second law, simple harmonic motion, and the relationship between acceleration and force. It can also be used to study one-dimensional motion of a car (real and toy), an elevator, a pendulum bob, or an amusement park ride.
The adapter includes two connectors for Vernier analog sensors and one connector for Vernier digital sensors. A screw terminal and header pins provide access to myDAQ lines not used by the connectors. This includes the two analog output lines, three digital lines (including the digital lines with the frequency and pulse width modulation outputs), and a +5 volt power terminal.
The Vernier Resistor Board has seven 1 W 5% resistors mounted on a circuit board. Test clip holes on either side of the resistors allow for easy connections to clips on wire leads. The Vernier Resistor Board provides an ideal set of load resistors for KidWind wind turbines and solar panels.
The Stainless Steel Temperature Probe is a rugged, general-purpose temperature sensor that can be used in organic liquids, salt solutions, acids, and bases. Use it as you would use a thermometer for experiments in chemistry, physics, biology, Earth science, and environmental science.
The Turbidity Sensor measures the turbidity of fresh-water or seawater samples in NTU (Nephelometric Turbidity Units, the standard unit used by most water collection agencies and organizations). Its small, sleek design and simple setup make it easy to use at the collection site or in the classroom.
In addition to water quality studies, it can also be used to monitor precipitate formation or algae and yeast populations in chemistry and biology classes. The Turbidity Sensor includes high-quality Hach StablCal™ 100 NTU standard for quick calibration and a high-grade glass cuvette for your water sample.
