Example of performing a Moving Average

fa fa-file-text-o

This tutorial guides a DATS user through the steps required to perform a moving average on a given signal. The tutorial explains the concept of the ‘Integration Length’ and the ‘Output Interval Step’.

Initially a signal is required to perform the moving average on. In this tutorial a sine wave will be generated. A sine wave is generated using the parameters shown in Figure 1.

Exporting DATS datasets in non-linear format

fa fa-file-text-o

The following tutorial shows in detail how to use Prosig DATS to export data in a non-linear format.

DATS stores all data in linear format. When you export data you are exporting the raw stored data. Therefore, to export data in a non-linear fashion we must convert the data to non-linear scale (dB for our example) and then export to the desired format, in this case CSV.

Creating calculated signals with DATS Acquisition

Case Study: What can I do if the transducer I am using has a non-linear sensitivity over its measuring range?

Abstract

Recently a PROSIG user wanted to measure a specific temperature parameter on a running engine. The transducer being used was one of the engine sensors built into the engine operating system to minimize engine emissions and maximize fuel economy. Unfortunately, the sensitivity of this transducer was not constant over the desired temperature range. The question then became, how can the output from this non-linear transducer be used to accurately measure the desired temperature parameter?

[Video] Creating speed signals for data with no tacho

fa fa-file-video-o

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…
