Don Welch, MTI Instruments’ Director of Engineering held a webinar where he presented “Simulate, Calibrate and Verify Field Sensor Transmission with a Portable Signal Generator” and then led a Q&A session.
MTI is a worldwide supplier of precision measurement solutions and portable balancing equipment. The Albany, New York company held a IEEE GlobalSpec webinar on Friday, November 9, 2018 from 11 AM to 12 PM EST (8 AM to 9 AM PST).
Attendees learned how the MTI 1510 Signal Generator can be used to generate various kinds of sensor signals for testing, calibrating a data acquisition system (DAQ), or testing the integrity of such systems. This single, hand-held device from MTI Instruments provides precision and accuracy that rivals products costing thousands of dollars more.
The webinar covers:
- Learn how to simulate AC and/or DC voltage, charge, strain gauge, vibe and speed signals
- Understand how to calibrate a remote DAQ, including frequency response up to 100 kHz
- Learn how to test the integrity of an amplifier/calibrator to identify different points of failure
