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 also stores that data in its memory.
  • Samples at 400Hz, 8 samples are collected, averaged and stored as a data point. A test will generate a data point every 20ms
  • Displays a graph of all measured force values upon completion of a test
  • 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. (See more information about the EZ-Data product)
