When implementing a compass system, it's important to understand the types of errors that can affect the accuracy of the heading readings. This article discusses those errors and explains methods to correct for them.
A selective sampler enables you to sample a signal more quickly and efficiently while retaining the desired frequency resolution. The technique can be used to detect transient power changes rapidly, before blackouts occur.
Implemented on the assembly line, dynamic defect detection exploits intrinsic component vibration characteristics to help ensure that the product will not fail in the buyer's hands.
The final chapter of this tutorial takes up the details of surface preparation, mounting options, and recalibration techniques and scheduling, and explores the ways in which the application can help direct the transducer selection process.
The sensor selection process must take into account the fundamental characteristics of different types of accelerometers and the environment in which the devices will be doing their work.
The conclusion of this two-part series first addresses the unique design requirements of medical spirometers and propeller meters used to measure water flow. It then turns to the design details, operating principles, and capabilities of dual-rotor axial turbines; two-phase flow measurement with axial turbines; insertion axial turbines; and multijet turbine flowmeters. Research into the use of axial turbine flowmeters for the measurement of two-phase (gas/liquid) flows is also briefly reviewed.
Aliasing in sensor signal paths can be avoided by using an anti-aliasing filter between the sensor and the ADC. This article describes how to design a simple, second-order anti-aliasing filter.
Part 2 of this two-part article focuses on how to optimize the performance of your capacitive sensor, and to understand how target material, shape, and size will affect the sensor's response.
Part 1 of this two-part article reviews the concepts and theory of capacitive sensing to help to optimize capacitive sensor performance. Part 2 of this article will discuss how to put these concepts to work.
Leaks are bad news. Not only do they lessen your process efficiency, but they can also present a danger to the environment and your personnel. Here's why you should perform regular leak audits and how to approach the auditing process.
