Objectives
On completion of this topic you will be able to know about • Requirements of transducer

AEI 305.14 TO 15

2

Requirements of a transducer
• Ruggedness • Linearity • Repeatability • Convenient instrumentation • High stability & Reliability

AEI 305.14 TO 15

3

Requirements of a transducer
• Good dynamic response

• Excellent mechanical characteristics

• Built – in Integrated capability

AEI 305.14 TO 15

4

Ruggedness
Ability to withstand overloads, with safety stops for overload protection.

AEI 305.14 TO 15

5

Linearity
• Ability to reproduce input-output characteristics
symmetrically and Linearly

• Overall linearity is the main factor considered

AEI 305.14 TO 15

6

Repeatability

Ability to reproduce the output signal exactly when same measurand is applied repeatedly under same environmental conditions

AEI 305.14 TO 15

7

Convenient instrumentation

Sufficiently high analog output signal with high signal to noise ratio , digital output , preferred in many cases

AEI 305.14 TO 15

8

High stability & Reliability

Minimum error in measurement, unaffected by temperature, vibration variations. and other environmental

AEI 305.14 TO 15

9

Good dynamic response
• Output is faithful to input when taken as a function of time

• The effect is analyzed as the frequency response.

AEI 305.14 TO 15

10

Mechanical characteristics
Excellent mechanical characteristics that can effect the performance in static, quasi – static, and dynamic states.

AEI 305.14 TO 15

11

Major effects of mechanical characteristics
• Mechanical hysteresis • Viscous flow or creep • Elastic after effect

AEI 305.14 TO 15

12

Built-in Integrated capability
Built-in Integrated capability of device with noise, asymmetry and other defects are minimized

AEI 305.14 TO 15
