Later, electrically powered chart recorders and magnetic tape recorders were used. Today, powerful microprocessors and computers perform data acquisition faster, more accurately, more flexibly, with more sensors, more complex data processing, and elaborate presentation of the final information. Data acquisition can be divided into two broad classifications – real time data acquisition and data logging. Real time data acquisition is when data acquired from sensors is used either immediately or within a short period of time, such as when controlling a process (Frey and Williams 1994).
