That's what a DAQ would do, right? :P
Please don't tell me I'm barking up the wrong tree too about the DAQ.

heehee, I couldn't find thick cables here. When I asked for AWG10,
people gave me blank looks. And the thickest they had, was a nightmare
to cut and coil. I gave up on the idea very quickly.

It's evolving, at first it was just a bunch of bulbs, then was told
they were non-linear, went to resistor banks, then to mosfet switched
banks with just DVMs, to mosfets as resistive loads, then I decided if
I'm going to get this complicated, I might as well take it all the
So I read the spec and found a whole lot of stuff I've never thought
of when this testing idea first came to up :P
Thus the DAQ idea, the automated load changing and stuff.
