What is a DAQ system?

DAQ stands for data acquisition. It is the process of collecting analog data like temperature and pressure from sensors, instruments and other devices and turning it into digital formats. This digitized data is then stored in a computer for faster analysis and reporting. 

A DAQ system allows real-time monitoring, data logging and analysis.  It is used in various fields such as scientific research, industrial automation, quality control and more. Combined with customized software and scripts- a DAQ system can be used as a powerful tool to improve and refine new designs ore test and automate with speed and precision.
