Openhab and smart laboratory

i’m a masters student and i’m working on using openhab to make a smart laboratory . my imagine is to control scientific devices ( on / off ) and obtain the data they read on my mobile phone . i have worked on the part of control ( on / off ) and i have already controlled a switch using openhab . but i have no idea about the part of collecting data from a device . any help about that ?

something like https://thingsboard.io/docs/samples/esp8266/temperature/ ?
together with MQTT binding. Generic info about MQTT: https://www.openhab.org/addons/bindings/mqtt.generic/

Analogue /Digital
