About this Unit
Through practical exercises students will engage with engineering measurement and instrumentation systems. Students determine the most appropriate measurement method and instrument, such as multimeters, digital oscilloscopes and interfacing modules, for particular applications. They will gain experience with the measurement of physical quantities and the instrumentation required to accurately present information to a controller. Additionally, transducers used to measure common physical quantities are presented in detail, while instrumentation includes a detailed analysis of zero-span circuits, Wheatstone bridges, instrumentation amplifiers, isolation amplifiers, voltage-to-current and voltage-to-frequency modules used for faithful signal transmission, digital-to-analogue and analogue-to-digital circuits to deepen student learning.
