Data acquisition and processing now possible with 'watch dog' computers in the field linked by telephone to monitoring engineers in the office are best appreciated by an investigation of the components of that instrumentation system. This paper presents the details of the likely input, critical components of such a system, proper placement of sensing transducers, development history of these instruments, and the new considerations necessary with computerized digitization of analog signals.
