ADAM II microprocessor-based data acquisition system: a data acquisition system samples sensors, transforms their signals into digital values and puts data on a support compatible with computer processing. The program used was specified by Alcyon Equipment for each purpose describing the sequence of operations to be performed.
INTACT Peripheral Data Acquisition System: a remote data concentrating unit for ADAM II. INTACT: Acquisition: sensors convert physical parameters into electrical signals. The task of a data acquisition system is to adapt incoming signals (counting of pulses, amplification of low level electrical signals, scanning, analogue to digital conversion) and storing them.
MEC and S- MEC Measurement Evaluation Computer: responsible for
editing and cassette recording with ADAM II, displaying on 2480 character screen, and interfacing to any usual computer, BASIC programmable.
