Sensor Fundamentals: Sound and Vibration Measurements


Become familiar with the basics of taking sound and vibration measurements, as well as best practices for taking these measurements. This video will help you become familiar with types of sensors such as accelerometers, proximity probes, and microphones, and how and when to use these sensors depending on your application needs. Additionally, you will learn how to connect sensors to PXI, CompactDAQ, and CompactRIO hardware, and how to use LabVIEW to perform data acquisition and measurement from your system of choice. You also will learn about requirements for performing accurate, reliable measurements, and about signal processing techniques such as noise reduction when performing data acquisition.
