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.


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