I am looking at the PICO ADC-212/3 to be used to collect vibration data from our test stand and I really do not know what I need to do this. Anybody that has advice is welcome.
We need to print a spectrum of the vibration from 0 to 80k hz in db or ins/sec and also the over-all level. What do I need to do this?
Can anyone recommend an accelerometer to be used with this system? I would like to get 3 of them for three different locations.
That is the basic requirements and then I few general questions.
Are there any filters available to remove low end and high end vibration?
Where is the vibration data stored before the FFT is used? I was reading that data storage rate to the disk drive is 240Hz and that is too slow if the FFT is done after the data is transfered to the disk. Will that limit the useful range of the FFT?
