  • How to Select a Pressure Transducer for Industrial Applications
    Today's technologically advanced pressure transducers are more accurate, reliable and rugged than ever before. They are ideal for long-term use even in harsh environments of extreme temperature, humidity, and vibration. Industrial pressure transducers are used in a wide variety of industrial
  • Understanding the Importance of Transducer Orientation
    When monitoring vibration on large gas or steam turbines and generators with fluid-film bearings, the relative movement of the shaft within the bearing is typically measured by a pair of shaft proximity (eddy current) transducers. Data from these transducers is used to produce a variety of plots
  • Vibration Analysis - Should We Measure Acceleration, Velocity or Displacement?
    When using vibration data, especially in conjunction with modelling systems, the measured data is often needed as an acceleration, as a velocity and as a displacement. Sometimes different analysis groups require the measured signals in a different form. Clearly, it is impractical to measure all
  • Introduction to Piezoelectric Accelerometers
    The classic Piezoelectric Accelerometer is the most commonly used transducer in the vibration world today. These accelerometers are inexpensive, come in a variety of packages, and easy/forgiving to use. Learn more about the basics of these sensors here...
  • How Does a Sonicator Work? (.pdf)
    The ultrasonic electronic generator transforms AC line power to a 20KHz signal that drives a piezoelectric convertor/transducer. This electrical signal is converted by the transducer to a mechanical vibration due to the characteristics of the internal piezoelectric crystals. The vibration
  • Understanding And Caring For The Heart Of Your Ultrasonic System
    which contains the transducer which converts electrical energy into mechanical vibrations. 2. A horn to transfer the mechanical vibrations from the transducer to the parts to be welded. A basic ultrasonic probe is show in figure 1-2. As indicated, the horn is secured to the transducer
  • Piezoelectric Sensor Technology
    be easily correlated when the vibration being measured is a simple sinusoidal motion containing one frequency. However, the vibratory motions measured in practice almost always contain some harmonic distortion even with sinusoidal laboratory shakers. Thus, if acceleration data is needed, a transducer
