Data acquisition software is used as part of the process of sampling signals from sensors 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, typically convert analog waveforms into digital values for processing. The components of data acquisition systems include Sensors, Signal conditioning circuitry, and Analog-to-digital converters. Software applications control the measurement device to process the signals into data for display and as stored values for analysis.
One of the most common types of application used for Data Acquisition is the Serial Wedge.
Serial Wedge Software is a perfect Data Acquisition accessory for serial devices such as sensors, meters, measuring instruments, etc.
The Serial Wedge allows the adding of the data from a sensor measurement to be treated as if it was being typed by an operator using the PC keyboard. This method allows a user to set up a common data processing application such as a spread sheet to use the live sensor data to preform real time data processing and analysis in a simple to use way and eliminate the need for custom computer programming.
graphical programming data acquisition software provides tools & functions to quickly develop applications.
Graphical programming allows a more customized solution but still allows a user to set up a common data processing application and eliminate the need for custom computer programming. It is a little more involved that setting up a spreadsheet, but can be considered a low code environment, designed to be used by a technician,
