Apologies for the lack of posts, work and life has been busy but fun, now back to my hobby.
Whilst going though some of my files I found a spreadsheet I wrote first back in 2012/2013 (ish). I thought it would be a good spreadsheet to share.
The reason I created this spreadsheet was that in my job at the time I had to create Vibration Standards for database creation/standardisation across multiple business units and locations, and so I needed a quick way to decide upon the best data collection parameters that would resolve the defect of interest. There was also limited server space so I didn’t want to collect unnecessary data. Obviously, now with the advance in technology you can take one large data set with huge number of samples and a high sample rate.
The spreadsheet is self explanatory and has notes on each section to explain, please read the ‘Introduction’ tab first. Even though it was designed for the CSI Emerson MHM the ‘Vibration Calculator’ tab is universal (other than the Special time waveform option) whereas the ‘PeakVue Calculator’ tab is unique to CSI MHM.
Apologies in advance on any terminology errors as I wrote this in the English/Aussie tongue, therefore there may be some miss interpretation from my English/Aussie to other cultures.
This interactive calculator is good to help understand how the sample rate and number of samples affects the frequency and time domain resolution for what you want to resolve.
