All the sensors such as temperature, humidity, and pressure used in industry provide analog outputs as inputs for their control units. Wireless transmission of the data has advantages on wired transmission such as USB port, parallel port and serial port and therefore has great importance for industrial applications. In this work, a new wireless asynchronous data communications module has been developed to send the earth magnetic field data around a ferromagnetic material detected by a KMZ51 AMR sensor. The transmitter module transmits the analog data obtained from a source to a computer environment where they are stored and then presented in a graphical form. In this design, an amplitude shift keying (ASK) transceiver working at the frequency of 433.92 MHz which is a frequency inside the so called Industrial Scientific Medical band (ISM band) used for wireless communications. The analog data first fed into a 10-bit ADC controlled by a PIC microcontroller and then the digital data is sent to the transmitter. A preamble bit string is added in front of the data bits and another bit string for achieving synchronization and determination the start of the data is used. The data arriving at the receiver is taken by the microcontroller and sent to a LCD display as well as the serial port of a computer where it is written in a text file. A Visual Basic based graphics interface is designed to receive, store and present the data in the form of graphical shapes. In the paper, all the work has been explained in detail.

Enhancement of the reliability of MEMS shock sensors by adopting a dual-mass model
Fathalilou, Mohammad; Soltani, Kamran; Rezazadeh, Ghader; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (Elsevier BV, 2020-03-01)
MEMS shock sensors are widely used with applications ranging from aircraft to electrical measurement systems. They are designed to operate at the shocks above a predefined threshold level. The conventional single-mass switches may lose their reliability at shock levels smaller than the threshold, if experience smaller unwanted pulse duration. This paper has proposed a dual-mass switch with auxiliary mass-spring attached to the main system which increases the reliability of the sensor against the unwanted pu...

A linear temperature controller and a cryostat have been developed to measure thermally stimulated current (TSC) in CdS, a-Si:H and CdTe in order to determine the trapping characteristic. In this paper, the temperature controller and the cryostat are described in detail. In addition, TSC spectra, at five different heating rates, for a CdS thin-film sample recorded with the developed system are given, The system controls the linear heating of a sample at temperatures between about 100 K and 373 K. The temper...
Comparing the probing systems of coordinate measurement machine: Scanning probe versus touch-trigger probe
Bastas, Ali (Elsevier BV, 2020-05-01)
An increasing level of research is focalising around the Coordinate Measurement Machine (CMM) as an important dimensional inspection instrumentation, that is utilised in a wide range of industrial metrology applications with its high precision measurement capabilities, flexibility and high measurement speed. The key functional section of the CMM is the probing system, that enables capturing of spatial coordinate data along measurement surfaces. This research compared the measurement performance parameters (...
An instrument for the high temperature measurement of the Seebeck coefficient and electrical resistivity
GÜNEŞ, Murat; Parlak, Mehmet; Ozenbas, Macit (IOP Publishing, 2014-05-01)
A system for the simultaneous measurement of thermoelectric power and resistivity of one and/ or two samples over a temperature range of 300-1000 K in a vacuum chamber is designed and implemented. A sample probe is developed to provide its easy mounting and usage. In addition, two samples can be measured at the same time. Measurement accuracy has been enhanced by beadless thermocouples and micro-heaters that are specifically designed in order to minimize the 'cold-finger effect' and to eliminate some possib...
Investigation of multilevel inverters for d-statcom applications
Deniz, Mustafa; Ermiş, Muammer; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
The most important advantages of Multilevel Inverters are the absence of a coupling transformer for medium voltage applications and low harmonic current content. In this way, relocatable and economical STATCOM systems can be realized. Complex control algorithms and the isolation problems of measurement devices and power supplies are the main challenging parts of this type of application. In this study, the design, realization, and the performance of a Voltage Source Type Cascaded Multilevel Converter Based ...
