A data acquisition system is a system that comprises sensors, measurement devices, and a computer. A data acquisition system is used for processing acquired data, which involves collecting the information required to understand electrical or physical phenomena.
Data acquisition systems consider the following analog signals.
- Analog signals, which are obtained from the direct measurement of electrical quantities such as DC & AC voltages, DC & AC currents, resistance and etc.
- Analog signals, which are obtained from transducers such as LVDT, Thermocouple & etc.
Types of Data Acquisition Systems
Data acquisition systems can be classified into the following two types.
- Analog Data Acquisition Systems
- Digital Data Acquisition Systems
We are developing a vey high speed acquisition software, following is the block diagram of our software.
