During this 4-part webcast series you will learn more about common sensor and signal measurements. In each of the webcasts, engineers from National Instruments UK & Ireland will teach you the sum and substance of a particular measurement application, from theory to practice. This webcast is intended for engineers and scientists who need to acquire reliable and accurate measurements as part of their monitoring, test or control system.
Data Acquisition Basics and Technology
This webcast introduces the fundamental concepts and the terminology associated with data acquisition. Sensor measurements are complex, requiring integration of multiple physical quantities, high accuracy and having to account for the real world irregularities and deviations. The webcast covers essential sensor operating principles like sensitivity, range, precision, resolution, multiplexing, response time and dynamic linearity, which are critical to ensure accurate representation of the physical phenomenon being measured.
Voltage, Current and Power Measurements
Learn the fundamentals of creating AC/DC voltage, current and power quality/monitoring measurement systems. See how to properly connect the signals to your data acquisition system for accurate acquisition. Learn high voltage measurements and isolation and view a demo on how you can get started with your power measurements really quickly.
Load, Pressure and Torque Measurements
Learn how to measure load and pressure using load cells. See how wheatstone bridges form the foundation of pressure, load and torque measurements. Also learn concepts like signal conditioning for load measurements, connecting a sensor to the instrument.
