Causes Of Hardware Failure

Obviously if you disconnect the USB cable or unplug the power to the computer then you will encounter a catastrophic hardware failure. The list below itemizes some less obvious types of failure.

Hardware Failure Recovery

If you are concerned about hardware failure then turn on the Backup. Even if you unplug your computer's power you should still be able to recover previously collected data. For less drastic hardware failure you can simply click the Reset Acquisition button on the hardware failure prompt. If your failure is of a permanent type, for example if you apply wall outlet power to the DAQ device and it burns out, then you will need to replace the component in question. But at least your data will be intact if you turn on the backup.
