Measuring Wind Speed Using an Anemometer with a 4-20mA Output and a DI-2108-P Data Logger

One of the most common measurements in data acquisition is that of 4-20mA analog signals. Not only are 0-20mA and 4-20mA process current measurements extremely common in industrial settings, but a significant number of flow, pressure and rate sensors also feature 4-20mA outputs. Why Choose a 4-20mA Output? Acquiring data from sensors/transducer with a voltage Read More

How to Determine Power Consumption Using a Current Probe with the DI-4108

In this article, I will show you how to display and record current (Amps) using a DATAQ Instruments model DI-4108-U, WinDaq data acquisition software and a 400 Amp AC/DC current probe (Electronic Specialties Model 697). I’ll use the current information to determine how much energy is used in a typical household appliance. I chose the Read More
