Measuring the transverse sensitivity of vibration transducers

  The National Metrology Institute of South Africa (NMISA) has implemented a system to measure the transverse sensitivity of vibration transducers. As a mechanical device, the principle sensing axis of an accelerometer is not 100% perpendicular to the mounting axis. This gives rise to the effect that the accelerometer will produce an electrical output even […]

Control and protection for power converters

  LEM manufactures transducers which provide control and protection to power converters and inverters which regulate energy to the electric motors for propulsion and to the auxiliaries for air-conditioning, heating, lighting, electrical doors, ventilation, etc., for rail transportation applications. The company is also able to provide on-board or substation monitoring of DC power consumption via […]
