Data Acquisition

A general-purpose laboratory data acquisition system typically consists of ADCs, DACs, and digital inputs and outputs. The additional channels are often added to an ADC via a multiplexer, used to select which one of the several analog input signals to convert at any given time. This is an economical approach when all the analog signals do not need to be simultaneously monitored. Most real-world events and their measurements are analog. That is, the measurements can take on a wide, nearly continuous range of values. The physical quantities of interest can be as diverse as heat, pressure, light, force, velocity, or position. To be measured using an electronic data acquisition system, these quantities must first be converted to electrical quantities such as voltage, current, or impedance. Most distributed measurement systems follow the Client/Server architecture. According to this architecture, one or more instruments are connected to a measuring station, which operates as a server, while the acquired data are available through a network to the clients.
