A Discussion on The Basics of Data Acquisition: What You Need to Know

 

type of data acquisition system

For many, if not all, scientists and engineers, data makes their world go round. They collect real time data for laboratory researches as well as for industrial projects that may benefit people and the world, as a whole, in one way or another. With that, these professionals make use of data acquisition systems.

In spite the fast growing data acquisition market, not many are aware of how data acquisition systems work since data acquisition may not be directly related to their everyday life. But for those who are interested in real time data collection and for those who want to know more about data acquisition FAQ and details, the discussion below will serve as a brief overview.

Data Acquisition and DAQ Systems

Data acquisition, also termed as DAQ, is basically a process by which physical and electrical phenomenon are measured. These phenomena are referred to as data; a few examples of these are water levels, current, temperature and pressure. In data acquisition, the collected phenomena or data are measured through the use of a computer.

Data acquisition is made possible by data loggers. Data loggers are electronic devices, can be wired or wireless, which are used to record data. Data acquisition systems house the following components

  • Sensors

Measuring physical phenomena starts with sensors; kind of like how sensors transmit signals to our brain whenever we have a toothache or back pain. These sensors or transducers are responsible for converting the physical parameters into electrical signals that are measurable. And so, when measuring physical phenomena such as applied force on an object, pressure or intensity of light—sensors give outputs in the form of voltage, current, etc.

  • Signal-conditioning circuit

The measurement does not only stop at the level of the sensors; it is then followed by signal-conditioning circuitries which convert the data, from the sensors, into signals that can be read by the computer’s analog input board. In other words, the signal-conditioning circuit converts sensor signals into a form that can be, afterwards, converted into digital values.

  • Converters (A/D or Analog-to-Digital)

The analog input board or analog-to-digital converter is then responsible for the conversion of the conditioned signals into digital values. If you might not know, the digital value is actually the format that is usable and readable by the personal computer.

  • Computer

The personal computer must have the correct software to analyze and process the data. With the appropriate software, the data may also be displayed in graphs and other forms for further analysis and interpretation.

How it Works

As discussed above, the process of measuring variables such as flow/current, pressure, temperature, light, etc. begins when sensors transmit their signals into a signal-conditioning circuit, when necessary, or directly to the analog input board. When the signal-conditioning circuit finishes its job, which may include the following:

  • Filter or amplify sensors or signals
  • Provide the correct output signal
  • Detect overload
  • Monitor signal level

The signal is then passed to the analog board. The analog board then converts the conditioned signal into digital values readable by the computer. Lastly, the computer’s software takes care of the processing and display of data.

New model yachts or ones that are refitted or continually maintained are the types of yachts you must keep an eye out for.

  • Safety gear

Professional companies that have been around for a while will ensure that you have smooth transaction with them from all the way without any complications. Before you sign on the dotted line, be fully aware of the many safety procedures on the boat and how best various unexpected emergency situations can be dealt with.

Ask about safety and evacuation measures available on board and stress that proper safety gear be made available for each of your guests on board. Your on-board crew must also comprise of qualified professionals that are trained specifically for yachts and are well-seasoned.

Does Your Company Have an Offshore Injury Policy?

offshoreinjuryIn March of 2014 the BP Deepwater Horizon met a disaster ending and multiple sailors and employees of the BP corporation met an unfortunate ending.  While this disaster might have been avoided if proper safety precautions were taken it also points to another important lesson for people working offshore.

Legality and Offshore Work – Do you know your rights?

Workers and expats who opt to work overseas are not subject to the laws, rights and regulations imposed by US labor lawyer. As a result employees can be subject to actions or results that would otherwise be deemed illegal in the US.

One of the biggest areas is personal injury. If you’re injured overseas the company that you’re working for may not be held liability for a number of reasons including:

  1. Local law – local laws may override international labor laws and allow companies operating out of a local subsidiary corporation the ability to waive legal rights.
  2. Contractual issues – Contracts for workers heading overseas to pursue employment are particualy tense with legal jargon and sub-clauses.
  3. Medical assessment of injury – payout for injuries overseas often require a “qualified” medical examiner to determine the nature of the injure and extent. These medical requirements may or may not be met by overseas doctors.

We suggest that anyone looking to move overseas for work consult with an criminal lawyer first.

The Rise of BitCoin – Why It’s Not Going Down

bitcoin

Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency in use today. It is not the first internet currency, but it has proven to be one with the most promise. There are also other cryptocurrencies in use by different organizations and websites, however, these all have a theoretical basis on block chains.

There are financial analysts who don’t consider bit coin and other block chain based cryptocurrency as real currency. The main reasons for this is that no government backs bitcoin as their official currency. Due to this no government uses any cryptocurrency. The backing of a government is important for a form of money to be considered as a currency. For another, the current value of bitcoin is highly speculative and the exchange of cryptocurrencies is still based on barter.

Even with all of those hurdles, bitcoin use is increasing, and there does not seem to be any reason it will become less popular any time soon. Here are other reasons for the continuing rise of bitcoin.

1. Secure currency transactions. One of the foundations of a cryptocurrency is the use of keys. For a person to pay in bitcoin, he is given a digital key for the transaction. This pushes the money as payment, going to the payee. The payee, in turn, has his own secure digital key in order to access his bit coins. In addition, there is a built-in system to ensure that no double-payment occurs. It is a self-checking procedure within the transaction chain list.

2. Faster clearing of transactions. A credit card or a checking account makes use of a clearing house (the credit card company, or a central check clearing house) which does the transaction reconciliation. Bitcoin does not have a central bank, or any bank for that matter. However, it comes with a list of transactions from the time the bitcoin was generated (also called a block chain). Any payment is considered a recording or posting of a new transaction in the block chain. There is no central copy of the transaction which will be used to transfer funds from one bank to another. This results in the immediate clearing of the transaction.

3. No transaction fees. The exchange is a transfer transaction moving bitcoin between two wallets. Transaction fees occur when there is a third-party facilitating or overseeing the transaction. In this case, since the electronic transfer is registered in the block chain as a transaction, this is recorded only in the buyer and seller’s bitcoin wallet.

4. No Tracking. Money in bitcoins is stored in chain blocks. These chain blocks are stored in personal bitcoin wallets. There is only one key to each wallet, and it is the responsibility of the owner to keep this secure. The transactions themselves are used to verify the transactions and to ensure that the block chains are correct. Although these are stored as encrypted transactions, there is no way for any person to be able to read this as raw data.

5. No third-party control. Bitcoin transactions occur along only one block chain. The transactions are only between two parties without any need of a third-party. This means that there is no monitoring by outside parties, and no resulting tax on the transaction.

6. Growing Use. Even though bitcoin values in terms of “real” money is speculative and prone to wild swings, there are already a lot of companies which accept it for payment. In turn, this has created a demand for more bitcoin use. This provides the stability of real world use for bitcoin as a currency still in its infancy.

Bitcoin presents a different paradigm for money. It takes away the middleman, as well as any backing like government stability or gold reserves. However, its use of cryptography makes it a very secure alternative to what we still call as “real money.”
