the laboratory we are working in would like to conduct experiments and performance tests for renewable energy equipments and applications. we require a multichannel data logger that will be capable of gathering data using different existing sensors at very low cost.
the parameters that we would like to measure are the following:
1. wind velocity (using existing thies clima anemometer with Hz input)
2. temperature (using existing PT100 RTDs)
3. solar irradiation (using existing kipp & zonen pyranometers with mV input)
we were thinking along the lines of purchasing the ADC-16 data logger. do we need to purchase signal condition devices for each sensor? Can we construct these signal conditioning devices ourselves?
thanks and we hope for your quick reply.
