Sensors, Detectors and Data Loggers

Sensors and detectors are a vital part of analysis systems providing information on the current state of the system in question. They may measure such properties are temperature, pressure, flow rate etc. While they may be plugged directly into a computer, data loggers provide an alternative method for recording data over long time periods without the need for direct coupling to a computer.
