  • The Rate Integrating Gyroscope (RIG), Part 1
    The gyroscope is an instrument where the input is a rate of turn (angular rate). Any gyroscope is a torque-in, torque-out device. Therefore, the output of the gyro is a change in the gimbal angle (the gimbal turns) in response to the rate of turn input, due to gyroscopic precession. The input
  • US Dynamics Rate Gyroscope Interface Brief
    This applications note discusses in brief, the typical input signals to and output signals from a US Dynamics miniature spinning mass Rate Gyroscope. Since there are several variations of rate gyroscopes, the signals exemplified here represent those typical of the Model 475 Rate Gyroscope, a common
  • US Dynamics Model 475 Rate Gyroscope Technical Brief
    the reader to the basic rate gyroscope functionality. The rate gyroscope is a rate-of-turn transducer. The output signal represents the 'angular degrees per second' (a rate) of a turning maneuver. The output of a rate gyroscope is calibrated in 'millivolts (mV) per degree per second'. A typical rate
  • Reading Pulse Output Sensors with dataTaker DT8x Data Loggers
    Users often run into applications that require data logging from sensors that provide a pulse output. Common types of these pulse output sensors include flow meters, speed sensors, electrical power meters and switches for event counting. These applications may require the measurement of a rate
  • Modernizing a Passive Sonar Which Has a Beam-Former with Digital Output
    The customer's requirement is to capture 10 signals, lasting 0.6 milliseconds each. 120 such signals arrive sequentially from a multiplexer within a beam-former. The clock rate is 2 MHz. The beam-former creates 120 beams and the raw digital data (underwater acoustic signal) from each beam
  • Basic Output Generator Excitation and Demodulation Requirements for USD Gyroscopes
    This applications note discusses the input signal excitation and output signal conditioning (demodulation) requirements of the transformer type output generator, or pickoff used on the US Dynamics Miniature Rate Integrating Gyroscopes (RIG) and Rate Gyroscopes. In addition, basic transformer type
  • Model-Based Inferential Sensing of Melt Flow Rate in Polymer Compounding Operations (.pdf)
    In plastics compounding operations, product melt flow rate (MFR) is frequently one of the quality control variables and it is usually measured off-line in a quality control lab using an extrusion plastometer. The ability to monitor product MFR on-line from output process variables such as motor
  • Bulk Bag Filling Rate Guide
    Every filling machine requires an operator to physically rig the bulk bag, initiate the fill sequence, tie-off the filled bag, and to initiate bag removal. Some filling machine models, however, lend themselves more readily than others to automation. The output of filled bulk bags from the selected
  • Pressure Transducer Usage in VFD Control for Electric Motors in Machinery and Factory Automation
    VFDs, or variable frequency drives, are a common tool in electric motor control. VFDs, simply put, control electric motors by modifying the power input frequency to the electric motor. VFDs used in conjunction with electrically driven pumps can be made to control both the flow rate and the output
  • Wireless InSite 2.4 New Features List
    A Communication System is now available for performing interference analysis using selected transmitter and receiver sets. The result of this calculation is bit-error rate output files that appear in the output tree under the communication systems entry in each active study area. This analysis
