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 …

So you’ve got some noise and/or vibration data from a rotating machine, but no speed information. Surely that means you can’t analyse against speed or do any order analysis, right? Well, not quite!
The DATS Rotating Machinery option now comes with a tool to create speed v time data using your noise or vibration signals.
Watch the video to find out how…

We were asked the following question… I want to perform some cylinder head and inlet manifold vibration analysis, what should I do? First we need to consider sensor selection
“How do I balance a shaft?” seems like a fairly straightforward question, but there are a number of things that we need to understand first. Here we look at a number of key concepts that need to be understood in order perform balancing. What does balance mean? Well broadly speaking to balance a shaft, mass …
There are tachometer signals available on the vehicle CAN-bus. Can I use these signals instead of connecting my own tachometer signal?
A simple question should have a simple answer and that answer is “No”. As usual, however, life is never that simple.
This note describes the importance and setup of a keyphasor or tachometer signal for PROTOR Remote Monitoring Data Acquisition System (RMDAS) units. RMDAS units are provided with manual tachometer conditioning control. The note describes the control functions and there effect on the conditioned tachometer signal, it also describes the relationship between phase measurement and keyphasor …
