SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The measuring system as a communication system. Conditioning of input signals: power sources, oscillators, instrumentation amplifiers, current transmission, interfacing criteria. Data acquisition boards. Microcomputers in measuring systems: hardware, software, connectivity. Data acquisition: programming (LabView) and management of data acquisition, for process monitoring and for automatic control. Processing of measurement signals: spectrum analysis and digital filtering (outline). Instrumentation networks; remote control of measuring systems. Architectures of digital measuring systems.

Design and implementation of a position servo-system and of a remote vibration-monitoring system.

Measurement of motion, forces and acoustic phenomena. Microsensors. Case studies.
