I’m new to your data acquisition systems but I’m building an engine dynamometer and the picolog 1012 has captured my interest. I need to pull signals from one load cell, two or more thermocouples, a Hall Effect transducer, and other additional sensors (these may include pressure sensors and environmental sensors). At minimum I will always need 4 channels but I do not expect to ever need more than 8. The highest sampling rate I need from the load cell, and the thermocouples, is 1kS/s and possibly 10kS/s from the transducer. I’m not sure what voltage the sensors will be operating at but I’m expecting to adjust the requirements as necessary. The logging could take up to 5 minutes but I’m willing to write my own software if picolog software will have memory issues. Also, I have read that some of your units perform signal smoothing to compensate for noise but I have not seen this in association with the 1012. Does the 1012 compensate for noise or is this a primary difference between this model and others. If the 1012 is not ideal for my needs please recommend a better solution.
