Need for better sampling performance, signal quality, arbitrary processing and storage of measurements was a motivation for this work. A full integration of the DAQ system in the global EPICS control environment was a strong requirement. An intermediate DAQ platform was put in place to satisfy the control and experiment needs. The NI PXI platform is selected to minimize integration and development effort. NI LabVIEW is used to create a generic DAQ application. CALab library supported by BESSY is used to connect LabVIEW and EPICS. CSS GUI provides the user with the necessary control, visualization and configuration capability. The technical and organizational approach to the collaboration will be detailed in the paper. Necessary customizations of CSS and CALab and experience on using NI PXI for DAQ platform will be explained.
