What is DAQ?

What is DAQ? Often abbreviated as DAQ, data acquisition refers to collecting sample signals allowing the measurement of physical phenomena in the real world. These signals convert into a digital medium that a computer can calculate when equipped with data acquisition software.

The MPXI-F is Built For Oil and Gas Exploration

Anything associated with oil and gas exploration? No, that's not easy. From detailed regulations to keep people and the environment safe, to the various hazardous, poisonous, or corrosive chemicals involved, to the remote places where most drilling occurs, oil and gas exploration is a tough industry for level and pressure sensors. APG's new MPXI-F explosion proof, flexible stem, magnetostrictive probe is made to excel in these specific harsh conditions.

The Basics of Pressure Transducers

APG's PT-L1 Industrial Pressure TransducerWhat is a pressure transducer? A pressure transducer is a sensor used to measure pressure. Depending on where you put it and how you connect it, a pressure transducer can tell you the pressure in a pipe or tank, the weight of an object, or even the depth of fluid above it. Most industrial pressure transducers are made of two technical parts, a transducer and a transmitter, inside a third, equally important part, the housing.
