The networked data acquisition system can be used to extract strain data which would be difficult to extract using traditional techniques. When used in conjunction with a mathematical analysis package the system can provide an important insight into a machines operation and brings a new dimension to a well established transduction method. The concept of positioning small data servers close to the strain gages has proved to be useful.
