Environmental Monitoring That Keeps Going & Going

National Instruments recently launched an instrument driver that gives NI LabVIEW graphical

National Instruments recently launched an instrument driver that gives NI LabVIEW graphical system design users the ability to interface with environmental monitoring sensors that communicate via SDI-12—a serial-based communication protocol optimized for battery-powered intelligent sensors. With NI LabVIEW SDI-12 application programming interface (API) software, the company says that you can additionally:

  • Easily acquire measurements, such as turbidity, dissolved oxygen, tank level, soil pH, conductivity and more.
  • Communicate with sensors and recorders commonly used in environmental datalogging applications, like climate change tracking, water quality testing, soil monitoring, etc.
  • Connect environmental data with LabVIEW-compatible I/O to form a comprehensive and flexible environmental datalogging solution. 
  • Shorten your development time when designing data acquisition applications.



  • Measure environmental parameters in a lab setting or deploy stand-alone systems into remote locations (combined with an RS232 to SDI-12 converter, and any computer or NI programmable automation controller that includes a serial port).
  • Download the software for free from the NI Instrument Driver Network at www.ni.com/idnet.
