Abstract

A safe and comfort workstation can increase the performances of the worker. Environment parameter is one of the factor that need to be monitor and display to create a safe and comfort work station. An acquisition system that can monitored and display these environment parameter need to be developed. In this paper, an acquisition system is developed to monitored and display three environment parameter which is sound, light and temperature. An acquisition system consists of sensor, data acquisition (DAQ), power supply board, computer and LabVIEW. Sensor will captured the environment parameter then DAQ convert the signal gained from sensor into computer. All the data from sensor and DAQ then will be program by using LabVIEW. An acquisition system has been test and able to captured all three environment data and test is conducted in the lab scale. It is hoped that with this acquisition system, a safe and comfort workstation can be provided to a worker and eventually can increase workers performance and decrease worker’s medical cost due to low accident and health problem among workers.
