Method of Measuring Displacement, Velocity and Acceleration

Method of Measuring Displacement, Velocity and Acceleration Displacement is a quantity that indicates the change in position of a body or point. Angular displacement refers to a rotation that can be measured in degrees or radians. Displacement transducers can be either contacting or noncontacting. Contacting transducers typically use a sensing shaft with a coupling device

Methods of Measuring Temperature

Methods of Measuring Temperature Temperature is the most common physical parameter that is measured and converted to electrical form. Several types of temperature transducers respond to temperature and produce a corresponding indication by a change or alteration in a physical characteristic that can be detected by an electronic circuit. Common types of temperature transducers are

Characteristics of Sensors

There are a number of parameters that characterize sensors’ performance. The time-independent characteristics are called the static characteristics, while the time-dependent characteristics are called the dynamic characteristics. The static characteristics characterize the sensor output after it has settled due to changes in the physical quantity being measured. The dynamic characteristics describe the sensor characteristics from

Distinctive Thermocouple Noise Problems

Distinctive Thermocouple Noise Problems Thermocouple emfs are small. Fine temperature resolution requires substantial amplification. For quasi-static thermometry, modern noise suppression techniques available to designers of data loggers overcome ordinary coupled electrical noise to routinely achieve as small as 0.1 °C temperature resolution and long-term stability (much smaller than required by thermocouple tolerance). Thermocouple measurement of

Thermocouple Thermometry Practice

Thermocouple Thermometry Practice Temperature Ranges Moderate and High Temperatures: Temperature and duration of exposure are unavoidable environmental variables in thermometry. Other environments can sometimes be controlled. Standard thermocouple tables extend only to the greatest temperature of recommended use for benign protected environments, short durations, and for wire materials of 3 mm or greater diameter. Reduced
