Ok, so some back ground info: I am a mechanical engineer and have designed a testing apparatus to aid in some measurements. That being said I was able to easily design the setup but have no idea on how to make it work automatically once a "start" button is pressed. I don't think this simple operation would require a PLC system but rather a micro controller of sorts.So in my picture I have attached are the steps I want to perform...I would love to export the recorded data to a text file so it could be imported into a program i already wrote. Any advice for a newbie? I know this is probably a large first project...but I am looking for suggestions for micro-controllers and any other ideas.
