In this tutorial, a Phantom Camera is interfaced with a National Instruments USB 6361 Data Acquisition Unit (DAQ). The first part will talk about interfacing the DAQ with a PC, followed by the procedure for both a DAQ unit and a PC to a Phantom Camera. By following this simple tutorial, you will be able to acquire an analogue input signal from a pickle switch using freely downloadable National Instruments (NI) test software. Lastly, we will show you how the Phantom Camera Control (PCC) software can be used to complete the same task, but where a cine and analogue input signal can be recorded simultaneously and thus time synchronized in time. We will also briefly show how the acquired DAQ data can be exported from the PCC software to an Excel file for post processing.
