I am working on a project that calls for monitoring 2 analog signals.
1. Signal from Accoustic Emission (AE) Sensor - (milliVolts)
2. Pressure transmitter - (4-20mA)
These analog signals are coming from a manufacturing process. I need to monitor these signals for every manufacturing cycle which lasts for about 8-10 seconds.
Cycle start is indicated by the rise in pressure signal and Cycle stop is indicated by drop in pressure signal to 4 mA.
During this cycle, I have to measure if the DB levels, picked up by AE sensor is within set limits. If the signal crosses beyond the set point, I have to generate an alarm indicating Faulty process.
Since, AE sensor calls for high data capturing rate (It works 450 - 80 kHZ) I propose to use PicoScope 2205.
Would like to know if I am thinking in right direction.
