How to mount Accelerometers correctly to make sense
of your Analysis Results
18-19 May 2004
Find out how to select and mount accelerometers correctly for a wide
variety of industrial, research and R&D applications. With an accent
on identifying and eradicating common mistakes and misconceptions
often encountered in vibration measurements.
Day 1: Accelerometer technologies, selection criteria, mounting
techniques, error sources, smart transducers, signal conditioning
Day 2: Basics of vibration measurements, principles and practical
application of frequency analysis, difference between acceleration,
velocity and displacement using examples, plus much more.
Frequency Analysis Course
