How to Pick The Best Data Logger Software

You need a data logging software and you have no idea where to start? Yes, it can be tricky and you need to consider numerous factors, but it’s not that complicated as it looks on the first sight. We’ll go step by step, take every factor into consideration and help you decide what’s the best solution for you. 
What do you need it for? 
This is the first question you need to answer. Data acquisition systems come in different versions, shapes and are made for different purposes. You need to start by defining the exact reason you need it for. Every aspect matters. The temperature range, the chemicals involved in the process, whether you measure pressure and humidity, everything that is important for an engineer to choose the best option for your project. 
How do you want it to work?
The second essential question is whether you need a real-time data logger or not? Some projects require the data to be collected in real-time, while some have the leisure to collect the data at the end of a process. Usually, the projects that last longer require less frequent collecting of data, while shorter projects require often or even real-time data acquisition. It’s an important factor to consider when choosing and setting up you daq software.
How do you want your reports?
Some reports can be simple, plain sheet with data on it. More sophisticated reports present data through graphs or tables. Simpler software will only collect data for you, and you’ll need to manually organize it in a spreadsheet or however you prefer it to be. Advanced software has the option to present the data almost in almost any way you want it to.
