In an attempt to accommodate your schedule you will be able to register for either a 10am or 2pm session.

The webcasts cover:

Data Acquisition Basics and Technology
This webcast introduces the fundamental concepts and the terminology associated with data acquisition. Sensor measurements are complex, requiring integration of multiple physical quantities, high accuracy and having to account for the real world irregularities and deviations. The webcast covers essential sensor operating principles like sensitivity, range, precision, resolution, multiplexing, response time and dynamic linearity, which are critical to ensure accurate representation of the physical phenomenon being measured.

Temperature Measurements
This session provides a detailed guide for measurement and device considerations to take temperature measurements using Thermocouples, RTDs or Thermistors. Learn common temperature applications, sensor basics and how to connect them to your instruments.

Voltage, Current and Power Measurements
Learn the fundamentals of creating AC/DC voltage, current and power quality/monitoring measurement systems. See how to properly connect the signals to your data acquisition system for accurate acquisition. Learn high voltage measurements and isolation and view a demo on how you can get started with your power measurements really quickly.

Load, Pressure and Torque Measurements
Learn how to measure load and pressure using load cells. See how wheatstone bridges form the foundation of pressure, load and torque measurements. Also learn concepts like signal conditioning for load measurements, connecting a sensor to the instrument.
