Data Acquisition Systems


Data acquisition (DAQ) is the process of measuring an electrical or physical phenomenon such as voltage, current, temperature, pressure, or sound with a computer. A DAQ system consists of sensors, DAQ measurement hardware, and a computer with programmable software. Compared to traditional measurement systems, PC-based DAQ systems exploit the processing power, productivity, display, and connectivity capabilities of industry-standard computers providing a more powerful, flexible, and cost-effective measurement solution. These data acquisition systems are mainly for monitoring and regulating manufacturing processes and systems.

Our flexible and collaborative approach delivers efficient, accurate, and robust data acquisition systems, as well as the tools to leverage data for effective results analysis. We develop systems using a variety of software and hardware platforms (custom and off-the-shelf), data acquisition systems, and control methods.

Stability team leverages a variety of programming platforms for success in Test & Measurement solutions. These include LabVIEW and text-based languages (Python, Java and more).
