Automated measurement systems use data acquisition hardware to capture data from sensors attached to engineering systems. An automated measurement system consists of data acquisition hardware and attached software. The hardware is attached to sensors to measure physical phenomena such as temperature, pressure or voltage. The software will be capturing this data with little human intervention and analysing, displaying and storing the information so that it can be used to inform engineers.

Many automated lines require various measures such as measurement of:

  • Forces
  • Dimensions
  • Torques
  • Preassures
  • Temperatures
