Prosig DAC Signal Generation and Reproduction

fa fa-file-text-o

Using a Prosig P8000 system with a 8424 DAC (digital-to-analogue) card fitted, it is possible to generate signals of any type. Typically, these might be  sinewaves, chirps, random, bursts, sweeps or anything else that you can think of.

With a maximum bandwidth of 19.2kHz for each and every output, the 8424 DAC card offers the highest quality reproduction of either real time generated signals or replayed signals at sample rates of up to 288kHz.

The high sample rate to bandwidth ratio ensures that any signals generated or replayed up to 19.2kHz are reproduced in extremely high quality with little or no distortion.

How do I balance a shaft?

fa fa-file-text-o

“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 must be added or removed at certain angles. The concept being that the centre of gravity and rotational centre of the shaft will be equal when the shaft is balanced. Continue reading How do I balance a shaft?

Why does Auto-Zero have no effect for IEPE sensors?

fa fa-file-text-o

The Prosig P8000 Auto-Zero function is used to remove the DC content of a signal.

For example, if you have a sine wave that is ±5 volts about 0 volts it has no DC offset. But if you have a sine wave with ±5 volt amplitude about 3 volts, then it has a 3 volt DC offset. Below is an example of these two sinewaves.

Two sine waves with and without DC offset
