Data Acquisition

Course Description

This course will explore a broad family of measurement applications used to verify design work, analyze trends or characterize a process or a product. The course also provides an introduction to the National Instruments (NI) LabVIEW software, a global standard graphical programming environment. The student will learn how to control systems and plot, chart, display and report measurements using LabVIEW software. The National Instruments Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite II (NIELVISII) will be used to interface “real-world” inputs from transducers (thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors, temperature sensors, photo sensors, load cells, strain gauges, etc.) that respond to a physical phenomenon by producing a proportional electrical signal to the PC via a USB interconnection. Additional industrial hardware such as CompactDAQ and the NI USB-6008 USB interface will also be used.

This course is not offered in the current semester.
