Price and performance beyond compare

Go ahead and compare the Keysight Technologies, Inc. DAQ970A Data Acquisition System with other data acquisition systems currently available. You’ll find it hard to come up with a system that offers the powerful measurement performance, flexibility, connectivity options and ease of use of the DAQ970A—even in systems costing three to five times as much.

What can you expect from a data acquisition system that’s this affordable? Measurements you can trust

We took the measurement engine from our best-selling benchtop DMM and embedded it inside a 3-slot mainframe. You get the benefit of proven Keysight measurement performance, universal inputs with built-in signal conditioning, and modular flexibility, all in a low-cost, compact data acquisition package. The DAQ970A features 6½ digits (22 bits) of resolution, 0.004% basic dcV accuracy, and ultra-low reading noise. Combine that with scan rates of up to 450 channels/sec, and you’ve got the speed and accuracy you need to get the job done right the first time.

Built-in signal conditioning to get your job done

Whether you need to measure temperature, ac/dc volts, resistance, frequency, or current, the DAQ970A can handle it. The internal autoranging DMM directly measures 12 different functions, eliminating the need for expensive external signal conditioning. And our unique design allows complete per channel configurability for maximum flexibility and quick, easy set up. It’s like having an independent, high-performance DMM behind each channel.

Standard connectivity to the PC

The DAQ970A has built-in Gigabit LAN and USB 2.0. With the standard LAN connections you also get the added benefit of a graphical Web interface for easy configuration of measurements and monitoring of results using a standard Web browser.

Convenient data storage with USB flash drive

The DAQ970A also features a built-in USB memory port so that you can use a USB flash drive to collect data without being connected to a PC. Data can be logged directly to the USB flash drive, extending your instrument’s memory, or copied from internal memory for transfer to a computer in another location.

Virtual front panel control via Web interface

The built-in graphical Web interface provides easy access and control of the instrument using a Web browser such as Chrome and Internet Explorer. Using this interface you can configure measurements, define and execute scan lists, or monitor measurement results from anywhere on the network. Simply enter the instrument host name or IP address into the browser URL and gain access to the instrument’s front panel capabilities.

Additionally, since the Web interface is built into the instrument, you can access it on any operating system that supports a Web browser without having to install any special software.

Password protection and LAN lock out are also provided to limit access. The graphical Web interface makes it easy to configure measurements, set up and execute scans or troubleshoot your designs from anywhere on the network.

BenchVue DAQ software saves you time and money. Now included.

Now you don’t have to spend your valuable time writing or configuring software. Keysight BenchVue DAQ software gives you a familiar Microsoft Windows interface for test configuration and real-time data display and analysis.

Unequaled ease of use

From the simplified configuration to BenchVue DAQ, we put in extra time and energy so you don’t have to. Simple things like on-module screw-terminal connectors, built-in thermocouple reference junctions, well-organized user documentation full of examples and hints, all add up to increased productivity, whether you use the instrument every day or only now and then.

Custom configurations that grow with you

Three module slots and seven switch/control modules allow you to customize the DAQ970A to meet your unique requirements. Buy only what you need—and add more modules later as your application grows.
