v1.0 - SEP Step 8 - Assembly - Data Acquisition (DAQ)

Added by Jeremy Wright about 10 years ago

Here's the cleaned up version of Shepard's DAQ system. I used an Arduino Proto Shield to cleanly package the thrust and temperature sensing electronics. Everything seems to be working fine. The thermocouple reads the ambient temperature correctly and the temp rises when I touch the thermocouple tip. Although the force sensing resistor (FSR) isn't calibrated yet, it's showing some promise. The next step is to calibrate the FSR and add the last few software features. I probably won't have time to test it before J and I meet at Club Cyberia on Saturday, so hopefully the weather cooperates and we can do several test firings there.
