What is waterfall frequency spacing? And how does the DATS parameter ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ work?

fa fa-file-text-o

Let us try to understand what waterfall frequency spacing is. Waterfall frequency spacing is the gap between spectral lines in an FFT plot.

For example, if you had an analysis frequency of 0Hz to 100Hz and 100 spectral lines, then Frequency Spacing is 1Hz.

So why is there a ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ and an ‘Actual Frequency Spacing’? Continue reading What is waterfall frequency spacing? And how does the DATS parameter ‘Requested Frequency Spacing’ work?

What is “waterfall smearing”?

fa fa-file-text-o

When analysing a waterfall or performing order analysis it is important to consider the frequency resolution or the frequency spacing.

There is often a desire to increase the resolution to finer and finer detail. But that is a process of diminishing returns, and actually fraught with danger. And that danger is waterfall smearing. Continue reading What is “waterfall smearing”?

Multiplane Balancing – Zero Imbalance or Specified Imbalance

fa fa-file-text-o

In the DATS Multiplane Balancing Software, there are two options, optimise for ‘Zero imbalance’ or optimise for ‘Specified imbalance’, but what is the objective of these two options?

Is it important to consider the cable resistance when using strain gauges?

fa fa-file-text-o

The cable resistance can be a significant factor in the accuracy of the overall measurement. It is very important indeed to consider this point.

Prosig software allows the cable resistance to be entered by the user. Once this resistance has been entered, any calculations or calibrations carried out will be based on the known values of the bridge resistors as well as the resistances of all of the cables.

In most cases this will be negligible except if long cables are used.

How should the bridge factor be selected when using strain gauges?

fa fa-file-text-o

The number of active arms in a strain gauge Wheatstone bridge is known as the bridge factor.

As a simple guide when selecting bridge factors the following rules apply; Continue reading How should the bridge factor be selected when using strain gauges?
