Prosig & DJB Team Up To Create A New Training Opportunity

“Accelerometers through to data capture and analysis…The complete solution.”

A new training opportunity hosted by DJB and Prosig at College Court, Leicester.


Two of the UK’s leading manufacturers of test and measurement equipment have combined their training activities to offer customers a complete solution overview from sensors to data acquisition and analysis. A seamless integration covering the finer details to ensure all users can maximise their data quality and improve their analysis using the correct techniques for each application.


DJB will start the day at 10am covering all aspects of accelerometers. Lunch and refreshments will be served at around 12.30pm with Prosig then completing the day concentrating on data capture and analysis.


DJB – Acceleromters: Approx. 2 – 2½ hours

  • Principles of operation – Piezoelectric effect, materials used
  • Accelerometer types and correct selection – Construction, charge output, IEPE, temperature effects, mass loading, sensitivity, common problems, pros and cons.
  • Importance of correct cable use – low noise or non-low noise, what happens if you get it wrong, signal loss, tribo-electric noise, cable fixing & connectors.
  • Mounting methods and which to use – stud, wax, adhesive, magnets, tape, which and why, isolation, ground loops.
  • Associated instrumentation – Charge amplifiers. IEPE voltage conditioning, data acquisition.

Prosig – Capture & Analysis: Approx. 2 – 2½ hours

  • What are the four fundamental questions of vibration measurement and analysis?
  • Sampling Analogue Signals – How fast should we sample? What is frequency? How do we quantify if the data has been sampled adequately? What is aliasing?
  • Time Domain Analysis – Signal classification, statistical description, moments & standardised moments.
  • Frequency Domain Analysis – What’s Fourier got to do with it? And Buzz Lightyear? Frequency aliasing and digital filtering.
  • Angle Domain Analysis – Signal averaging, cyclic signals, DFT/FFT of angle/revolution data.
