titleNI ScanImage 5 Bundle

Vidrio Technologies offers National Instruments hardware bundles, to help users create valid configurations. If you also order a ScanImage optimized computer from us at the same time, Vidrio will install ScanImage and create a custom machine data file for your system.

Email us at support@vidriotech.com for a ScanImage hardware bundle quote.

PurposeOptionsNotes
Pockels controlPCIe-6321 or PXIe-6341Highly recommended - allows blanking laser during resonant scanner slowdown and galvo scanner flyback
Piezo/Fast Z controlPCIe-6321 or PXIe-6341Allows for volume imaging applications

Compatible Devices

Any X Series PCIe/PXIe multifunction DAQ board should be compatible such as:

DeviceUsage
PCIe-6363 or PXIe-6363High I/O resource board - allows multiple systems (galvo control, FastZ, Beams) to run of a single board
PXIe-6356Simultaneously sampled AI - allows consistent high speed data acquisition across many channels
Tip

The PXIe option is moderately more expensive, but has some advantages:

  1. Simplifies wiring complexity between boards.
  2. Reduces the number of PCIe slots required in the computer (or makes more available).
