5/10/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 7 Spring 2011 3 Reading and Homework -1 • Reading – Section 12.2, pp 522 - 525 in text – Go to Wikipedia and look up shaft encoder then read about incremental rotary encoders – In anticipation of your cyclometer project, read • Context Help for DAQmx Base Create Virtual Channel VIs – CI Cnt Edges VI - Counter Input Count Edges function – CI Period VI - Counter Input Period function 5/10/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 7 Spring 2011 4 Reading and Homework - 2 • Problem 12.13 from the text. • A magnetic pickup is used to detect the shaft speed of an experimental high speed compressor. A gear with 12 teeth is used to excite the sensor. If the shaft is turning at 18,000 rpm, how many positive pulses will be created per second? By what number must the number of counts in a second be multiplied to produce a result in rpm? • A strobe based tachometer is shining at a disk rotating at 2400 rpm. The disk has one circumferential marks for speed measurements. – a. How many marks will you see if the strobe flashing rate is 1200 per minute. – b. Repeat part (a) for flashing rates of 800, 2400, 4800, and 7200 flashes/min.

5/10/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 7 Spring 2011 7 7 Capturing Temperature Measurements from a Thermocouple • The measurement – Insert the TC into a power resistor – Apply voltage to cause the resistor to heat up – When at steady-state temperature , remove the TC and allow it to cool (in free space) – Record temperature data with time while the TC is cooling the result is an exponential decay similar to the graph on next slide. 5/10/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 7 Spring 2011 8 8 Sensor Cooling Curve t = 0 Sensor pulled from resistor What is the final temperature that you would expect?
