Winch Analysis

I have a Dataq DI-158U hooked up to a netbook for some winch testing. It has 4 analog channels so one is hooked up to the battery, another to the clamp on current meter.

First thing I did was recreate a winch tester with the device. The Dataq libraries are poorly documented but the UltimaSerial library is a lot easier to code.
