Computer interfacing and automation are two topics that have become very recognized and explored in industry and educational institutions. Many experimental and manufacturing processes are no longer human controlled, but computer controlled. The key to most automation involves some form of computer control. In order to design and build a control system, the builder must have a good understanding of interfacing basics, programming, implementation, and data analysis. This paper will try to simplify and create a better understanding of these topics. The final goal will be to build and program a new educational pressure versus temperature laboratory interface system that will automate and replace an old dangerous process. The reader should have some background in electronics and simple programming to fully utilize the information herein.
