Set up a sensor in Analyze

Overview

You can set sensor parameters for inputs A, B, C, and D. When you use the CSI A0643TX 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.
Note: Temperature is only available for input A.

Procedure

  1. From the Analyze main menu, press F1 Manual Analyze > F12 Input Setup > F7 Sensor Setup.
    You can also access the Sensor Setup option from the ALT2 Analyze main menu.
  2. 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).
  3. Press ALT to set the parameters for input C and input D.
  4. Press Enter.
