Devices that are used to acquire and retain data (digital or analog) from sensors or other sources.
Chart recorders and strip charts are data acquisition tools used to generate a plot, graph or other visualization of data versus time.
Paper recording charts and consumables consist of circular charts, strip charts, markers, fanfolds, sheets, pens, and pen arms used in chart and strip recording instruments.
Data acquisition is the digitizing and processing of multiple sensor or signal inputs for the purpose of monitoring, analyzing and/or controlling systems and processes. Signal conditioning includes the amplification, filtering, converting, and other processes required to make sensor output suitable for rereading by computer boards.
Data acquisition systems and instruments collect, digitize, and process multiple sensor or signal inputs for the purpose of monitoring, analyzing and/or controlling systems and processes.
Data collection terminals are portable or handheld devices that are used to input, read, and/or log data. They often have barcode and wireless data transmission capability.
Data loggers and data recorders acquire digital data from sensors and other signals. They are primarily used to store data for subsequent downloads to a host PC, but may also include real-time features such as monitors and alarms.
