Choose from eight optional plug-in modules to create a compact data logger, full-featured data acquisition system or low-cost switching unit. On-module screw-terminal connections eliminate the need for terminal blocks and a unique relay maintenance feature counts every closure on every switch for easy, predictable relay maintenance.

- Sampling time per channel has to be at least 30 data per second
- Possibility to connect to a computer to record the information. (LAN or USB preferred)

The 34972A with a 34901A 20-channel mux card will do it. It will give 20 channels for voltage/resistance/temperature and 2 additional channels for 4-20 mA sensors. The 34972A in this configuration will be able to give 30 meas/sec without any problems. The 34972A has a LAN and USB connection.
