Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Manipulate data.

Definition

Manipulation may include
  • explaining how data can be taken from different types of devices, such as computers, sensors, motors, and the environment
  • describing how all information acquired is processed and stored so it can be used to improve and analyze different events
  • defining data acquisition (DAQ) as the process of using a computer to measure an electrical or physical phenomenon such as voltage, current, temperature, pressure, or sound
  • identifying the parts of a DAQ system (e.g., sensors, DAQ measurement hardware, a computer with programmable software).

Process/Skill Questions

  • Why is data acquisition important?
  • What are the advantages of PC-based DAQ systems, compared to traditional measurement systems?
  • How is DAQ used in control and automation?
  • What is supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA)? What is its role in data acquisition?
