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 to select, from the signal setup matrix, ‘Trigger Type’, with this option set to ‘Tacho’ and the ‘Trigger Level’ set to the voltage crossing threshold several features become available in terms of tachometer processing.
By selecting the above options the user will be able to use the ‘Digital Panel’ display type from the signal display and thus by selecting the ‘Speed’ option in the ‘Display Type’ drop down list an RPM will be available.3320class="post-3320 post type-post status-publish format-video hentry category-tutorial category-video tag-dats tag-noise tag-order-tracking tag-rotating-machinery tag-rotational-speed tag-speed-signals tag-tacho tag-tacho-signal tag-tachometer tag-vibration tag-vibration-data tag-vibration-signals tag-video tag-waterfall-plot post_format-post-format-video"
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.

A simple question should have a simple answer and that answer is “No”.
As usual, however, life is never that simple. Continue reading There are tachometer signals available on the vehicle CAN-bus.

The digital tacho channel in a P8000 system offers better time resolution by dividing the main sample period by 16. However it is sometimes difficult to know what level the threshold should be set to so a facility to help you find the optimum level has now been added to the acquisition software.
