Data Acquisition

Digital panel meters make a great front end to a PC-based data acquisition system. They are easy to set up, can be used for a wide range of inputs, will power the transmitter, and best of all provide a local display of the process. Precision Digital has the perfect package with its PD765 or PD8-765 Meters, a wide selection of serial adapters and converters and free MeterView™ software. Data is displayed on the PC and written to a file that could then be imported into a spreadsheet or other application.
