Instrumentation

Presentation

Differents points which will be taken : Various types of transfers for laboratory data; synchronous, asynchronous, in open loop, closed loop; analog input / outputs, compromise  speed  / resolution / price. Series and parallel numerical input/output. Standardized instrumentation buses and norms: RS232C, IEEE 488. 1 and 488. 2, SPCI messages. Programming of input/ouputs, programmed mode. High level languages of instrumentation, Labwindows-CVI, Labview.

Objectives

 

The general objectives are

1) To acquire knowledge in the field of the measurement and data acquisition using computers.

2) To determine the important parameters of a measurement chain.  

 

Skills to be acquired : 1) Choose the equipment, method and language adapted to solve a measurement problem. 2) Develop software under Labview and Labwindows-CVI environment 3) Communicate with a data acquisition card or an instrument using RS-232 and GPIB buses. 4) Understand and use the main parameters during the use of data acquisition cards.

Needed prerequisite

Knowledge of C language required.

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
