Data Acquisition System

  • The ChemInstruments electronic data acquisition system is a state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled force measurement package that combines accuracy with ease of use. This system simultaneously controls test motion, reads the force of a test from a load cell, digitally displays it, and stores the data in its memory.
  • Records 400HZ, 8 samples are collected, averaged and stored as a data point. A test will generate a data point every 20ms
  • Displays the average, high, and low measured force results immediately upon completion of a test
  • Export data by USB connection to a local PC with our EZ Data software
  • Displays test values in grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds, or Newtons

EZ Data

  • EZ Data Compatible Remote setup, operational control, and enhanced data collection are all possible when coupled with our EZ Data management software. This application requires an external PC.
