Rostech work closely with several global data acquisition hardware manufacturers. This allows us to provide our customers with future proof, ‘plug and play’ data acquisition systems.

Our experience has led to our team developing many different types of data acquisition systems, from bespoke greenfield applications through to retrofit and upgrades.

We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technology, and providing our customers with a tailored, cost effective solution.

What is Data Acquisition

Data acquisition is the process of sampling signals that measure real world physical conditions and converting the resulting samples into digital numeric values that can be manipulated by a computer. Data acquisition systems, abbreviated by the acronyms DAS or DAQ, typically convert analog waveforms into digital values for processing. The components of data acquisition systems include:

  1. Sensors, to convert physical parameters to electrical signals.
  2. Signal conditioning circuitry, to convert sensor signals into a form that can be converted to digital values.
  3. Analog-to-digital converters, to convert conditioned sensor signals to digital values.
