It is possible to enable audio playback to listen to audible frequencies while recording or monitoring when using a P8000 and the V4 Acquisition software.
A question was recently posed regarding the grounding conditions of a BNC type input. The shield or outer of a BNC cable or connector is not connected to the chassis or ground. What would happen if it was connected to ground?
The maximum analysis frequency is always half the sample rate of the input signal.
So if your data is captured at 50kHz the maximum analysis frequency will be 25kHz.
In this tutorial we will be creating order plots using waterfall and intensity displays using use the DATS.toolbox and Rotating Machinery Analysis option.
To begin, a noise, vibration or other signal of interest should be captured along with a tachometer signal.
In Figure 1 we have loaded a time series (in this case an acceleration signal) and a time series of a tachometer pulse train into the DATS software.

When using an analogue channel input channel of a P8000, with a tachometer sensor, is it possible to utilise the tachometer processing functions as you would if you were using a tachometer input of the P8000?
For example could you display an RPM on an analogue channel?
When using an analogue channel it is possible to select, from the signal setup matrix, ‘Trigger Type’, with this option set to ‘Tacho’ and the ‘Trigger Level’ set to the voltage crossing threshold several features become available in terms of tachometer processing.
By selecting the above options the user will be able to use the ‘Digital Panel’ display type from the signal display and thus by selecting the ‘Speed’ option in the ‘Display Type’ drop down list an RPM will be available.
