The way data is collected in labs all over Pakistan has been revolutionised by PhysLogger, a data acquisition tool created by Qosain Scientific. Prior to its creation, the PhysLab used LabView software to record real-time data using NI DAQ cards.

Unfortunately, both students and teachers struggled with this setup, and students spent more time trying to understand the software than the fundamental ideas behind their experiments. In order to circumvent this issue, Qosain Scientific introduced PhysLogger as a replacement for conventional Data Acquisition Tool DAQ cards.

The user-friendly interface of PhysLogger made it possible for instructors and students to measure and control a variety of physical parameters, including temperature, pressure, voltage, current, speed, mass, and humidity.

Two experimental setups—the linear air track system and the calculation of the latent heat of vaporisation of liquid nitrogen—were used to introduce PhysLogger into the PhysLab. The majority of lab experiments now use PhysLogger rather than outdated oscilloscopes or DAQ cards.

According to student feedback, setting up an oscilloscope or using LabView to obtain real-time data from an experiment is much more difficult than using PhysLogger’s interface, which is much more straightforward and user-friendly.

The ability of PhysLogger to verify Faraday’s law by tracking the motion of a semicircular body containing magnets through a coil and logging real-time data particularly impresses students. PhysLogger is used in another experiment to gauge people’s blood pressure. This experiment captivates students because it allows them to observe arterial oscillations through changes in pressure.

The experiment’s objective is to establish the diastolic and systolic pressures by drawing an envelope around oscillations discovered while PhysLogger was used to record the student’s blood pressure in real-time. The ECG circuit and PhysLogger allow students to record sample ECGs, which is another fascinating experiment for learning about the physics of the human body.

Despite the fact that many students find thermodynamics to be a challenging subject, the freshman lab has created a setup that clearly illustrates the ideas of how objects heat up and cool down.

To measure the temperatures of various objects in this experiment, a thermocouple is connected to the analogue channel of a PhysLogger. This enables students to better comprehend the underlying concepts of heat transfer, forced cooling, and natural cooling.

Another experiment used PhysLogger to investigate the Otto cycle and validate gas laws in conjunction with its compatible sensing instruments (PhysTherm, PhysBar, and PhysDisp). The explanation of how a real heat engine cycle operates as seen in practise astounded the students.

PhysLogger turned out to be a game-changer for the PhysLab, replacing pricey and complex DAQ cards with a less expensive and more user-friendly tool that allowed students to concentrate on the fundamental ideas of their experiments rather than struggling with software installation.

Qosain Scientific hopes that PhysLogger will be adopted by labs all over Pakistan as a result of its success in the PhysLab, revolutionising the way real-time data is gathered and analysed in educational settings.
