Strain Gage-Based Transducer and Amplifier Selection and Calibration

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements When choosing a strain gage-based transducer/amplifier combination to acquire data such as force, load, pressure or torque, there are a several important considerations to keep in mind. In addition to measurement range you must consider the sensitivity of the transducer and amplifier as well as the required excitation (supply) voltage. Read More

Strain Gage-Based Transducer and Amplifier Selection and Calibration

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Check out our updated application note on the selection and calibration of amplifiers for strain-gage based transducers. This is an in-depth guide to selecting a transducer/amplifier combination based on supply voltage (excitation) requirements and the sensitivity (gage factor) of both the transducer and amplifier. Scaling to display engineering units (lbs, psi, etc.) using Read More

Learn How to Connect and Calibrate Thermocouples Using DI-8B47 Series Amplifiers

Data Acquisition > Thermocouple Check out out updated application note, covering the connection and calibration of thermocouples using DI-8B47 series signal conditioners. You’ll find step-by-step instructions on properly connecting thermocouples to your DI-718B, DI-718Bx or DI-788 series instrument. In addition, we’ll show you how to scale WinDaq to display engineering units (C or F) using the new ‘Engineering Unit Read More

Calibrating to Display Engineering Units

Data Acquisition > Software > WinDaq As explained a few blog posts ago, PC based data acquisition is the process by which electrical signals (from sensors) are fed into electronic instruments, digitized and stored on a PC hard drive. To be of any real use however, these signals must be converted into meaningful engineering units Read More
