Precise, flexible and fast mobile data capture

In this blog post, I would like to give you some tips on how to choose the right equipment for data collection when testing new products. New product testing is an important step in the development process to ensure that products meet quality standards and customer needs. This often involves not only laboratory or bench tests, but also field tests under real-life conditions. This requires a reliable and robust data acquisition solution that captures and records all relevant data.

Choosing the right data acquisition device depends on various factors, such as the location, the range of functions, the number of channels and the accuracy. Here are some questions you should ask yourself before deciding on a data acquisition device:

Where do the measurements take place?

  • If you need to measure outdoors, you need a data acquisition device that is shock and vibration resistant. It should also be easy to transport.

Which measurement methods are required?

  • Depending on which physical variables you want to measure, such as pressure, acceleration or sound, you need a data acquisition device that supports and controls the corresponding sensors. It should also be possible to combine different measurement methods, such as analog or digital signals, frequency measurements or pulse measurements.

How many channels are needed?

  • The number of channels determines how many sensors you can connect simultaneously. You should make sure that the data acquisition device has a high sampling rate and a high resolution to ensure data quality. It should also allow easy configuration and synchronization of the channels.

How easy is the data acquisition device to operate?

  • A user-friendly data acquisition device should have an intuitive user interface that allows you to start, stop and monitor measurements quickly and easily. It should also offer flexible data transfer and storage, for example via USB. Finally, it should have compatible software that allows you to analyse and visualize the data.

I hope that these tips will help you to choose the right data acquisition solution for your product testing.

The company Labortechnik Tasler has a product on the market:

The LTT24 mobile data acquisition system. This device is suitable for various application tests in which electrical or mechanical measured variables have to be recorded dynamically. The special feature of the LTT24 is that it can be connected to any PC without driver installation and the measurement data can be evaluated using the in-house LTTpro software.
