The duty cycle is a characteristic of a pulse. Use the following equation to calculate the duty cycle of a pulse whose high time and low time are unequal: Duty Cycle = High Time/Pulse Period where Pulse ...

Proximity probes are sensors that measure relative proximity. They use changes in voltage to measure shaft surfaces that rotate or reciprocate. Because they are non-contacting transducers, proximity probes ...

There are two common types of encoders used for measuring position: two-pulse encoders and quadrature encoders.

Event response applications require a response to a stimulus in a determined amount of time. An example is monitoring the temperature of an engine. When the temperature rises too high, the engine is slowed ...

Filtering is one of the most commonly used signal processing techniques. Signal conditioning systems can filter unwanted signals or noise from the signal you are measuring. Use a noise filter on low-rate, ...

In a floating source, the voltage signal is not connected to any absolute reference or any common ground, such as earth or building ground as shown in the following figure. Floating signal sources are ...

Piezoelectric force sensors are typically used to measure dynamic force events. Such sensors are divided into two main categories: load cells and impact hammers. Piezoelectric load cells measure the amount ...

The full-bridge type I configuration only measures the bending strain. The following figure shows how to position strain gage resistors in a bending configuration for the full-bridge type I. Full-bridge ...

The full-bridge type II configuration only measures bending strain. The following figure shows how to position strain gage elements in a bending configuration for the full-bridge type II. Full-bridge type ...

The following figure shows how to position strain gage resistors in an axial configuration for the full-bridge type III. The full-bridge type III configuration only measures the axial configuration. Full-bridge ...
