Quantity

The Automatic Data Acquisition Unit is an interface box with software that connects experiments from the TecQuipment Structures range to a suitable computer. It allows data logging, analysis and extra ‘virtual’ simulated experiments. It accepts inputs from a digital force display, a digital strain display, an angular sensor and digital deflection indicators. It converts these inputs into the correct data signals for the computer. The software can then analyse the data and create tables and charts. 

The software can also simulate experiments which students can perform using the hardware, so they can compare simulated and real results.
