  • Monitoring vs. Recording: Data Before, During, and After

    Before choosing a data logger or acquisition system, decide what the data needs to demonstrate, confirm, or prove.  Do you need to know what is currently happening in your application or do you need to know what happened?  Do you want to monitor or just record? A data logging system is designed to collect data over time and store it.  Within that system, you may have data loggers ...
