Selection of instruments

Author: dcunite

It is a challenging task for instrument engineers to select instruments considering all parameters. The engineer has to consider factors such as accuracy, resolution, sensitivity and dynamic error. Following points…

Static characteristics

Author: dcunite

There are two types of performance characteristics of measuring instruments which are: Static characteristics and Dynamic characteristics. First, let’s discuss static characteristics, these set of characteristics used to measure quantities…

Dynamic characteristics

Author: dcunite

Previously we have discussed static characteristics, as there are time-independent characteristics. Dynamics characteristics are traits that change rapidly with time. The input varies instantaneously whereas the output also varies from…

Humidity measurement

Author: dcunite

Humidity is the amount of water content present in the atmosphere. You have felt sticky when you touch your skin when you visit the beach or open ocean. This is…

Density measurement

Author: dcunite

Density is mass per unit volume. It is a characteristic property of a substance. Generally, fluids are measured by relative density or specific gravity. Relative density is the density of…

Viscosity measurement

Author: dcunite

Viscosity is the property of a substance; it is defined as the resistance offered between fluid layers. Practically everyone has seen it, the rate of flow of water is faster…

pH measurement

Author: dcunite

pH is used to measure the acidity and alkalinity of a liquid. pH was first defined as the negative logarithm of the hydrogen ion concentration, to simplify the handling of…

Actuator and control

Author: dcunite

An electric actuator is a device used to convert electricity into kinetic energy in either a linear or rotary motion. It automates damper or valve in order to increase process…

Signal conditioning

Author: dcunite

Signal conditioning is the technique of making a signal from a sensor or transducer suitable for processing by data acquisition equipment. A signal conditioner is a device that converts one…
