Global Data Acquisition (DAQ) Hardware Market: Overview
Data acquisition (DAQ) hardware helps in converting sampling signals that measures physical conditions into digital numeric values which can be further manipulated by a computer. DAQ mainly converts analog waveforms into numeric values, where basically the conditioned sensor signals are transformed to digital values. Data acquisition (DAQ) hardware comprises of the components such as sensors; which converts various signals of physical conditions into electrical signals, signal conditioning circuitry; for converting sensor signals into digital values. This hardware is basically the interface between a PC and the signal. DAQ can also appear as modules such as serial, parallel, and USB, which connects the computers’ ports, and cards such as AppleBus, PCI, ISA, S-100 bus, and MCA, which are perfect for fitting into the slots. Data acquisition hardware needs additional DAQ device drivers to work with a PC.
A high-quality DAQ hardware has the ability in monitoring electrical and structural signals of all magnitudes. Such hardware is easily transportable and fits rapidly at the test site for addressing various engineering challenges. Data acquisition (DAQ) hardware improves test efficiency and evaluates test results in real-time. Such USPs are believed to be driving the global data acquisition (DAQ) hardware market. The engineers use DAQ hardware for verifying functionality and the quality of the finished products. Data acquisition hardware provides accuracy, reliability, and flexibility in manufacturing and quality test. All such factors are expected to boost the global data acquisition (DAQ) hardware market. Furthermore, rising demand for central monitoring requirements in remote locations are also believed to fuel the global data acquisition (DAQ) hardware market.
Data acquisition hardware comprises signal conditioning circuitry, sensors, and analog-to-digital converters. Sensors are also called transducers that convert physical parameters into measurable electrical signals. The signal circuitry converts sensor signals to numerical values. Data acquisition hardware is an industrial control system that collects the data from instruments and sensors positioned at isolated sites, then communicates and demonstrates this data at an essential site for monitoring and control purposes. It is also used to collect and analyze data in real time. DAQ exploits the processing power, productivity, and connectivity capabilities of industry standard computers to provide powerful, cost effective, and flexible measurement solutions.
Factors favorable to the growth of the market are the increasing developments related to plug-in data acquisition board size. Further, increasing adoption of dedicated solutions for strategic decision making is expected to favor the growth of the data acquisition hardware market. With the number of industrial sites being set up in remote locations projected to surge during the forecast period, central monitoring requirements are projected to drive the DAQ market. Moreover, higher growth rate of industrial operations is anticipated to increase the demand for automation requirements resulting in higher opportunities for the market.
Data acquisition hardware is widely adopted for design validation, research & analysis, manufacturing & quality tests, asset condition monitoring, verification, diagnostics & repair, and computer based control and automation. Further, increasing analysis and design activities such as modeling behavior of scientific phenomenon and new product design is expected to support the growth of the data acquisition hardware market. Operations such as verifying product lifecycle, testing for accuracy and reliability, ensuring conformance to industry standards, and establishing evidence, design validation and testing is required for maintaining the required standards. The manufacturing and quality testing for electrical, mechanical, and environmental parameters is also carried out with the help of data acquisition hardware. Diagnostics and repair systems are useful to recognize root cause of the problem within machinery and image inspection systems. Moreover, asset conditioning and monitoring solutions are used for the durable condition monitoring of equipment such as turbines and compressors and to detect problems and prevent failures. Condition monitoring helps to prevent outages, optimize performance, and reduce repair costs. Computer based control systems help in handling various processes and machinery without human interaction. However, increasing complexity related to signal conditioning in the data acquisition market is expected to restrain the growth of this market.
