Introduction This is the last set of experiments I am using the 3 Series MDO with as part of my roadtest. The objective is to carry out further partial discharge testing on some cable samples, however, this test process will allow me to set up faults within the cab ...
Hardware The box contains, the usual 3 parts for a Trinamic evaluation kit, the Landungsbrücke controller board, the Eselsbrücke bridge board (a great place to monitor signals) and the target evaluation board, in this case the 2300. Along with these there is a power connector and a 3v stepper motor to test with. The motor is pre-wired with a connector for the evaluation board. Initially this did not seem that different to the previous version but one of the first things I spo ...
Maxim MAX32650-EVKIT part1: Introduction This road test will evaluate the EV kit from Maxim for MAX32650 ultra-low power memory scalable microcontroller. One of the important features is the 3.5 inch 320 X 240 Color TFT Display. I hope to take this for a few spins to test the programming capabilities of the built in controller. Besides the on chip 3 MB flash, an additional 64MB Flash is available through XIP. This should provide large amounts of program storage along with static data. A M ...
Flux Probe Data Capture from a Generator
Off-site Analysis of Waveform
Playing the Signal back into the RFA-II Analyser
Introduction In this blog I will utilise the 3 Series MDO to collect data from a Flux Probe or Air Gap Search Coil installed inside a generator and utilise the maths within the scope to carry out an analysis of the signal. This test again involves taking the 3 Series MDO out to a location as well as some bench work with a Flux ...
