Data acquisition is the process of sampling signals that measure real world physical conditions and converting the resulting samples into digital numeric values that can be manipulated by a computer. Data acquisition systems (abbreviated with the acronym DAS or DAQ) typically convert analog waveforms into digital values for processing. The components of data acquisition systems include:
- Sensors that convert physical parameters to electrical signals.
- Signal conditioning circuitry to convert sensor signals into a form that can be converted to digital values.
- Analog-to-digital converters, which convert conditioned sensor signals to digital values.
Methodica offers complete DAQ system setup. During this process we go over your sensor specification propose, configure and deploy DAQ hardware which will meet your data acquisition requirements.
Methodica offers NI based Turnkey Data Acquisition system which are controlled by software programs offered by our partner company National Instruments- PVI (ex. Chameleon developed using various general purpose programming languages such as LabVIEW).
