Conductivity measurement is a universal method of process control. Measurement is fast and straightforward, and most modern sensors only require little maintenance. The measured conductivity value is applied to obtain different assumptions about what happens in the substance, so such measurements are relevant when controlling technological processes and products in various industries (e.g., food, pharmaceutical). The main metrological characteristics of sensors for measuring conductivity LDL100, LDL200 are analyzed in the article.
With the development of microprocessor components and, accordingly, a significant expansion of the use of computer technologies, remote measurement techniques are being developed. These include telemetry and remote control of technical systems or their components in industry, research, home appliances and other fields. In this paper, the author suggests how to build a local web-server based on a microcontroller with an ARM Cortex-M4 core, which can be interacted with via an http-browser with Internet access.
In this project was shown approaches to the implementation of a weather station for monitoring the microclimate in the room on Arduino platform. Considered a platform for project development and software environment. The virtual scheme of the weather station is modeled. The main functions of the components are described and their connection to the microcontroller is shown. The process of firmware of the microcontroller is considered. The algorithm of system operation is described. A functional electrical diagram were also constructed.
Today, there are quite a large number of deaf- mute and hard-of-hearing people which communicate using gestures. Therefore, it is simply necessary to provide them with modern means of communication with the surrounding world. This paper creates a holistic computer system architecture for converting gestures into text and audio messages. The principles of construction and basic design solutions of a computer system based on a modern element base with increased productivity and minimization of hardware costs and energy consumption have been developed.
The accuracy characteristics of the ultrasonic range finder are studied in the work. The latter has been calibrated by a laser interferometer. The problems that arise are described. The calibration method was implemented with the help of a measuring installation, along the rail of which an ultrasonic sensor - range finder and a laser interferometer were fixed.
The paper considers the possibility of determining the permanent and random sources of pollution of the environment by the level of pollution of liquid atmospheric precipitation. The problems of liquid atmospheric precipitation testing and monitoring of pollution concentration during precipitation are outlined. The expediency of developing of a portable system that allows collecting samples of liquid atmospheric precipitation in autonomous modes at different time intervals and periods of rainfall, regardless of the place of its installation, is substantiated.
The structural and functional diagrams of the thermoanemometric type sensor for measuring the mono- and biphasic (liquid + gas) medium by the pulsating nature of the flow are presented. The temperature distribution in the sensor environment is considered and the sensing elements are not in contact with the inner surface of the sensor body.
The method of calibrating diode temperature sensors, based on a combination of two generalized methods: spline interpolation and approximation using orthogonal Chebyshev polynomials. The program of implementation of the OS Android. The established requirements for calibration carried out to obtain the final result thermometric curve as accurately as possible. It automates the process of obtaining the interpolation table and optimize calibration procedure. The method for approximating the characteristics tested termodiod sensor type DT-471 company Lake Shore.
The complex of technological and metrological researches concerning development of filamentous monocrystals application and fixing methods on various materials of substrate (elastic elements) is considered. The ways of uncontrolled distortions avoiding of the initial monocrystal defect-free structure that can occur at the nodes of its mounting and reduce the Q-value of the resonator oscillations, which is the main characteristic of the tensotransducer quality, is shown.
Department “Information and measurement technologies” of Lviv Polytechnic National University raises the training of masters and specialists in metrology and measuring technology to the higher level with support of “IFM Еlectronic” that is world-wide company in development and production of smart sensors and automation elements.
