Watch these introductory webcasts to learn the fundamentals of a particular measurement application, from theory to practice.
In this free seven-part webcast series, you will learn the basics of common sensor and signal measurements. The sessions are designed for engineers and scientists who need to acquire reliable and accurate measurements as part of their monitoring, test, and control systems.
Explore the fundamentals of creating AC/DC voltage, current, and power quality/monitoring measurement systems. Review instrumentation considerations and see a demo on how to properly connect the signals to your DAQ system.
Review different types of sensors to measure load, pressure, and torque; methods to integrate them into your measurement system; and techniques to help you get better data.
Learn the basics of strain gage operations, discover how bridge-based measurements work, and determine possible sources of error in a strain measurement system and ways to reduce or eliminate them.
Learn about temperature measurements using thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and thermistors. Review sensor basics, ways to connect sensors to your instruments, signal conditioning requirements, and methods to reduce errors in your system.
