The Personal Computer Angular Measurement System (PC-AMS) has been developed for those users that would like to collect and/or manipulate the data, from one to four Clinometers. The system consists of a USB device that plugs into the PC, ten feet of cable for each Clinometer, the required number of Analog Clinometers and a simple Visual Basic program to acquire, calibrate and display the angle of each sensor.
The plug-in USB device has eight digital inputs and eight digital outputs in addition to the four analog inputs that are used to monitor the analog outputs form the electronic clinometers. All of the inputs and outputs are connected via screw terminals on the USB device. The power required by the clinometers is supplied form the USB port.
The system resolution is 0.1 arc-degrees. See the data sheet included in the "Precision Angular Measurement Systems & Sensors" Brochure for the clinometer specifications (Part Number 100013-01).
The Dash Number of the system indicates the number of Clinometers to be included in the system.
