I would like to use pico ADC-11 to measure the decelleration of a large rotor.
The decelleration would take place within two 1/8 portions equally spaced about of a full rotation, then it would try to return to its original speed by means of a diesal engine. This rotor is spining at 1950 RPM.
I am thinking of using a 360 or 720 toothed trigger attached to the rotor then measure the pips using a magnetic pick up.
Do You think I am on the right track or would a different sensor / trigger be better. If so, what would you suggest?
