Lately at $work, we wanted to check a couple of strain gauges glued to a steel structure. They weren’t in active use for the last 15 years and it was not even known if they are measuring anything. I didn’t have any suitable measurement instrument at hand. I asked whether the task is time critical or can wait for a month or so. It was a perfect opportunity to play a bit and design a strain gauge digitiser board for the NW-R platform.
