ASTR2000 Automatic Data Acquisition Unit

ASTR2000 Automatic Data Acquisition Unit


The Automatic Data Acquisition Unit is an interface with software that connects experiments from the AII Structures range to a suitable computer (computer not included). It allows data logging, analysis and extra virtual simulated experiments. It accepts inputs from a digital force display, a digital strain display, an angular sensor and digital deflection indicators. It converts these inputs into the correct data signals for the computer. The software can then analyse the data and create tables and charts. The software can also simulate experiments which students can perform using the hardware, so they can compare simulated and real results.


● ASTR2000 Connects any of the Structures range experiments to a computer – includes AII’s Structures Software for automatic data acquisition and virtual experiments
● Computer interface and AII’s Structures Software (ASTRS) to display and collect data from any of the experiment modules in AII’s Structures range (ASTR2 to ASTR20)
● Includes AII’s powerful Structures Software to do two things: display and collect data, and allow ‘virtual’ simulated experiments
● Interface unit links to load cells and other instruments in the Structures range to send data to a suitable computer
● Allows students to compare results from actual experiments with results from simulation software
● Simple connection to most modern computers – no need to add any extra circuit boards
● Fully automatic – needs no adjustments or complicated set-up procedures on your computer
