Automated vs Manual
Manual vs automated data acquisition
As part of the system design and specification process, the question should be asked as whether the monitoring should have manual or automated data acquisition.
Both approaches have their merits and disadvantages. In establishing the most appropriate approach we need to consider questions relating to data sampling frequency, data review frequency, site location, access and the safety critical nature of the monitoring, in addition to health and safety and considerations towards the environmental impact.
We have considerable expertise in both automated and manual monitoring and can assist you in determining the most suitable approach for your project.
