Abstract
Over the past 6 years the Electronics Engineering Group at Defence Research Establishment Pacific (DREP) has developed, in association with the Corrosion and Coatings Group, a series of potentiostatic test instruments intended for long term corrosion studies. The instruments are unique in design and are characterized by their low cost, high accuracy and multichannel capabilities; however during the course of an experiment all data must be recorded manually from over 60 test points per instrument. Manual recording of the data is time consuming and prone to error. Manual data entry into a computer (for further data analysis) can lead to transcription errors. Automating the data collection function could provide data in computer readable format, eliminate the potential for human error and guard against failures in the experimental setup such as poor electrical connections.
