Signal Conditioner Filtering Noise

Signal Conditioner Filtering Noise Signal conditioning modules, SCMs, used for measuring process control variables such as temperature, pressure, strain, position, speed, level, etc. are always subject to externally induced noise signals. Noise sources in the form of electro-magnetically induced voltages (or currents) in industrial measurement and control systems are inevitable. Most noise [...]

Signal Conditioning Accuracy vs Resolution

Signal Conditioning Accuracy vs Resolution Preamble System error budgets should be developed and analyzed as an integral part of system designs. System engineers must determine the necessary levels of accuracy for system elements such as field sensors, actuators, signal conditioning modules (SCMs), and controlling units (PCs and PLCs). In addition, software algorithm [...]

Hardware Linearization of Non-Linear Signals

Hardware Linearization of Non-Linear Signals   Many sensors used in industry exhibit a deviation from an ideal (linear) relationship between input and output. For example, a given change in temperature does not give rise to the same change in emf for most thermocouples when measured over different temperature ranges. Sensors or signals [...]
