Why You Need USB Isolation for Industrial IO Industry Technology Paper

USB Isolation and Industrial I/O What is Isolation? Quite simply, isolation is achieved by removing any direct electrical connection between two devices or portions of a circuit, but having them work as if they were electrically connected. Isolation is generally rated by how high a low current AC voltage can be set before there is…

Temperature Measurement Select the Best Temperature Sensor for Process Control Applications Industry Technology Paper Thermocouples vs Resistance Temperature Detectors Many users simply look to fill the basic needs of their application and do not worry much about their choice of temperature sensing technology. That is, they will make a selection based simply on temperature range…

Temperature Measurement Using Thermocouples Industry Technology Paper

The Basics of Temperature Measurement Using Thermocouples Points of Consideration When Using Thermocouples to Measure  Temperature Since accuracy will ultimately play a significant role in selecting a sensor type, we should be familiar with potential sources of error when making temperature measurements with thermocouples. Some of these considerations may steer us from one T/C type…

Temperature Measurement Using RTDs Industry Technology Paper

The Basics of Temperature Measurement Using RTDs Temperature reigns as the most often measured process parameter in industry. Most industrial applications require that a temperature be measured remotely, and that this signal be transmitted some distance. An industrial transmitter is commonly used to amplify, isolate, and convert the low-level sensor signal to a high level…

What is Strain Measurement an Introduction Technology Paper

What is Strain & Strain Measurement What is Strain Gauge? Strain gauges change resistance in proportion to applied forces that result from loading, torque, pressure, acceleration, and vibration. Because their change in resistance to force is very small, they often connect in a Wheatstone Bridge of four elements. You can wire a bridge with one…
