I'm considering buying a NI-PCI card for the computer. I have a 6024E now and it seems to slow. I sample 4 analog channels with 100kS and want to go higher but then one channel gives an echo to next. I understand it is the MUX that has a settling time?
Can anyone suggest a better hardware that can deal with higher samplingrates (up to 200kS) from NI that don't kill my budget?
Solved! Go to Solution.
but then one channel gives an echo to next.
If you are getting ghosting, then you have too high of source impedance. Use a Voltage Follower setup to act as a buffer and get those source impedances down.
Go for a simultanious sampling device, PCI(e) and >= 200kSPS filter give some results
PCI-6143 would just fit
I would go for the PCIe 6346 (500kSPS,16bit and more input ranges)
I will test first with a voltage Follower and then test with a square wave and see what happens.
I found a PCI 6143 at eBay for a very low cost. about 300 USD.
However, Labview gives a warning when I'm using 100kS or above sampl.rate (I'm using DAQmx) that my hardware (6024E) can give bad accuracy with this speed. So even if I get a better PCI-card LV probably still gives me a warning.
6024E garantuees 200kSp(!).
Sorry about my bad english. 😕
