A turbine monitoring device is provided for interfacing the control panel of a gas turbine with a standard personal computer. The interface device includes a plurality of isolation circuits for isolating the personal computer from the turbine control panel to prevent ground faults. The interface device also includes scaling circuits to allow a selectable scaling factor to be provided to prefetermined operating signals. The interface device is adapted to receive operating signals from the control panel of the turbine and convert the operating signals into data signals which are suitable for use by the data processor. The interface device of the present invention may be used in conjunction with a variety of data processors which are readily available.
