Rotor Runout Measurement

Prosig’s DATS Software includes an optional add-on package for rotor runout measurement. Runout may consist of two components – Mechanical Runout and Electrical Runout. You can read more about runout on prosig.com here – Rotor Runout Measurement.

We are often asked exactly what analysis and information is included  The purpose of this post is to show some of the screens and reports from the Rotor Runout Measurement package. So here goes… Continue reading Rotor Runout Measurement

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…

For anyone curious about Prosig’s DATS software & P8000 hardware running under the newly released Microsoft Windows 8 we can report that everything works as smoothly as ever.

Here at Prosig we’ve been using the hardware & software on the preview versions of Windows 8 for a few months now. Since the final release hit the streets recently we can confirm that there are no known compatibility issues with DATS, P8000 and the new operating system.

If you have any specific questions please email us at support@prosig.com

Using global variables, variable arithmetic & script fragments

fa fa-file-text-o

One of Prosig’s engineers was recently creating a complex worksheet application that required some complicated arithmetic to be performed on values calculated in the worksheet. Worksheet (or global) variables are ideal for this. The Variable Mods DPU also has an expression evaluator built in. Consider the following worksheet that takes a Named Element from two signals and sums them. Continue reading Using global variables, variable arithmetic & script fragments

I’m sure many users will have been in this situation. You need an analysis function, you know it’s in DATS, but you can’t remember where. One of the major strengths of the DATS package is the depth of analysis functions it provides. Unfortunately, when you have a deadline and can’t find the function that you want that isn’t much help. But assistance is at hand… Continue reading Finding The Analysis That You Need
