data acquisition (DAQ)

Data capture is the conversion of data into machine-readable form for input into computers or electronic data processing equipment.

In data capture, a distinction is made between primary data capture, the creation and reading of documents that can be processed, and secondary data capture, the recording and reading of data carriers such as magnetic tapes, diskettes, etc.

Data capture involves the use of aids to store the data. When the capture device is directly connected to a data processing system, data capture is also data entry. Data acquisition is usually associated with checking procedures for formal correctness.
