Course Information

The heart of the plant is the process information that is collected: sensors collect and monitor the plant and transmitting devices allow the control or direction of the plant. Signals present in the plant can generally be grouped into either continuous (analog) or event (digital) signals. This class reviews sensors and measuring systems used to monitor process information such as temperature, pressure, level and flow, proximity and other sensors will be discussed. Computer based data acquisition will be covered including:
- Analog signal conditioning and filtering
- System grounding and ground loops
- Single ended vs. differential signals
- Common noise rejection & instrumentation and programmable gain amplifiers
- Multiplexing signals & analog to digital conversion
- Signal quantization & aliasing errors
- Nyquist criteria & digital filtering
- Alarm processing & data analysis
Students will build and run data acquisition systems with real-time process signals.
