Set up a sensor in Advanced Transient


You can set sensor parameters for inputs A, B, C, and D. When you use the CSI 0643TX triaxial accelerometer, input A receives measurements from the z-axis, input B receives measurements from the x-axis, and input C receives measurements from the y-axis. For Modal jobs, the hammer is on your reference channel.


  1. Activate a job.
  2. From the Transient main menu, press ALT > F3 Sensor Setup or press F1 Setup / Acquire Data > F12 Input Setup > F7 Sensor Setup.
  3. Set the following options as necessary for each input.
    Option Description
    Change Sensor Type Select the type of sensor to use for the input.
    Change Sensitivity Enter the sensitivity in volts per engineering unit, such as g's for an accelerometer.
    Change Sensor Power Select ON to use the accelerometer input where the analyzer powers the sensor. Select OFF to use the volts input, and the analyzer will not provide power to the sensor.
    Change Signal Coupling The coupling mode for sensor power ON is always AC coupled. When sensor power is OFF, the mode can be changed to AC or DC.
    Change Accel Config Set the accelerometer sensors as single axis (one signal), biaxial (two signals), or triaxial (three signals).
  4. Press ALT to set the parameters for input C and input D.
  5. Press Enter.
