When should a data acquisition (DAQ) system be used instead of a PC-based system?

There are several situations where using a data acquisition (DAQ) system for your applications is preferable to using a PC-based system:

  • When the conditions are too extreme for you to use a PC
  • When you need multiple measurement modules to run synchronously
  • When you need advanced measurement manipulation, on-board data processing, control functions, automated alarm systems, or other features
  • When you need advanced communications such as Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or radios
  • When you need to manage large data sets or schedule long-term data collection
