Reduce your test setup, execution, and analysis time

Set up and run a test simply and quickly without having to write a test program. The DAQ6510 Data Acquisition and Logging Multimeter System's intuitive touchscreen provides simple configuration with visual and intuitive test setups, real-time visualizations of scan status for catching problems early to avoid lost test time, and easy analysis of test data.


  • Configure: Setup a multi-channel scan with multiple measurement functions using one measure and scan configuration menu.
  • Run and monitor: Display the progress of the scan during the test to immediately see measurements out of range and limits exceeded.
  • Analyze: Display and analyze results using the plotting and statistics functions. Use the touchsceen's pinch and zoom capability to study results in depth. Use cursors to compute statistics on segments of the data.

Make a wider range of measurements

The DAQ6510 is made to measure with 6½-digit resolution and 15 built-in measurement functions. Make low-current, low-resistance, and temperature measurements, and see transient signals with the built-in digitizer.


  • Voltage: 100 nV to 1000 V with 0.0025% basic DCV accuracy
  • Current: 10 pA to 3A
  • Resistance: 1 µΩ to 120 MΩ
  • Capacitance: 0.1 pF to 100 µF
  • Temperature measurement with thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors, and thermistors from -200°C to 1820°C
  • 1 M sample/s, 16-bit digitizer with 7 million readings storage
  • Have more options for test systems with 12 plug-in switch modules and up to 80-channel capacity

Stream and log data to secure cloud-based data visualizations

Now you can stream data from your DAQ6510 and create real-time IoT dashboards and anywhere-accessible data visualizations


  • Monitor and log data streams directly from the DAQ6510 in real-time and from anywhere - with no PC-in-the-middle required.
  • Get e-Mail and text alerts using triggers based on measurement thresholds and other mathematical rules.
  • Access, visualize, archive, share, transform, and analyze current and historical data from anywhere - no install required.
  • Create dashboards for standardization, repeatability, and readability.
  • Overlay, time-dilate, and compare data sets across test runs

Reduce test time

Maximize the amount of data collected in the minimum amount of time. Make faster measurements, switch channels faster, and scan more channels.


  • Make measurements as short as 0.0005 power line cycles or 8.3 µs (10 µs) for 60 Hz (50 Hz) power lines.
  • Scan at the rate of 800 channels per second with the solid-state multi-plexer plug-in switch module.
  • Scan up to 80 2-pole channels for testing a statistically significant number of DUTs in a single test.

Connect to your DUTs quickly and reliably

The DAQ6510 makes you more efficient before you even start testing with mass-terminated, D-sub connections on many of its plug-in switch modules. This minimizes downtime when changing plug-in switch modules during system maintenance or when you're setting up a new test system.

Choose from a complete set of interface options

Standard LAN, LXI, and USB interfaces allow easy integration into your test system. Optional, field-installable GPIB and RS-232 interfaces include six digital I/O ports for direct instrument-to-instrument synchronization and communication. The DAQ6510 will work easily with any PC interface you choose.

Perform environmental testing and accelerated life testing with confidence

Set up a test on a statistically significant number of devices quickly using the touchscreen display. Monitor the status of the test while the test is in progress. See data in graphical or tabular form on the touchscreen display.


  • Test up to 80 devices in one setup with a single DAQ6510 mainframe.
  • Expand up to a higher channel count if necessary using the TSP-Link® interface to connect and control multiple DAQ6510 mainframes.
  • Monitor temperature over the range of -200⁰ C to 1820⁰ C with any of 8 different thermocouple types, 5 different RTDs, or 3 different thermistors.
  • Set limits and define critical channels to monitor during testing to know immediately when a problem occurs.
  • Store test data on an external USB drive or on a PC to ensure important data is not lost.
  • Program the DAQ6510 to re-start following the loss of power to minimize lost test time during evenings and weekends.

Cost-effectively test lower value resistance components

Test components such as cables, low value resistors, and connectors accurately and reliably with the DAQ6510.


  • Measure with 1 µΩ sensitivity.
  • Use the 4-wire resistance function to eliminate test lead resistance error.
  • Use offset compensation to eliminate thermal contact error.

Increase test capacity and increase throughput in manufacturing

p>Use the DAQ6510 to increase the number of devices with a single test system and maximize test capacity. Take advantage of the faster measurement time and faster scanning rate that the DAQ6510 offers.



  • Expand test system capacity up to 80 devices for one test system.
  • Take fast measurements with a 0.0005 power line cycle integration time.
  • Use the solid state relay card for high volume manufacturing and scan through DUTs at a rate as high as 800 channels/s.
  • Let the DAQ6510 execute and control a test to minimize communication time with a PC by using the DAQ6510’s internal TSP program execution.
