Meters & DAQ
Data acquisition (DAQ) is the process of using a computer to measure electrical or physical components such as current, voltage, pressure, sound, or temperature. DAQ systems collect information via sensors, measurement hardware, and a computer with software. DAQ sensors pick up and document information such as resistance, current, or other electrical phenomena that vary over time. The information is then logged into the computer, or the DAQ device, for accurate, safe, and simple reading.
Meters are important for assessing physical and electrical components. Depending on your application, you will need to select a meter appropriate for the type of signals you need to generate or measure.
