## RF signals, amplifier for TV range

Depends on the distance between antenna and transponder.Saying that 30-60 dBuV at the output of a Yagi-Uda antenna with a 10-18dB Gain.Maybe less maybe more respecting to the distance,antenna position,antenna matching,analog-digital...etc.etc..

## Half bridge AD698 LVDT circuit

I am trying to measure distance using LVDT sensor and AD698 IC. I don't have data relating the sensor I am using. I am simply tried to copy the distance measurement with device I already have. I matched the AC input and output of my system with the device that I already have. My input AC excitation is 5 Vp-p and 17 KHz. The output is (...)

## Infra rad thermometer measurement spot size

If i hold this IR thermometer 1cm away from the surface to be measured, what will be the measurmenet spot size? The 1:1 parameter seems more like referring to the ratio of the focal distance divided by the inner diameter of the pipe ( its effective optical aperture ), which gives 1cm for the measured area at such distance. Perhaps

## what does the phase noise -121 dBc/Hz @ 600kHz mean?

Its the equivalent phase noise as measured in a 1 Hz bandwidth with respect to the amplitude of the carrier. That is dBc/Hz. Now you can make that measurement at any frequency distance away from the carrier (usually above) and that is the @xxx Khz figure. As you get closer to the carrier the noise level will increase, and right at the carrier th

## using a logitech c615 webcam for distance measurement experiment

Hi, I am trying to work out an experiment for determining distance of a target placed 800 mm away. The experiment is something like this. A sharply focussed laser beam is targeted at a target (grey black in colour and non reflective), the laser beam is at an angle, a webcam like the Logitech C615 is placed directly opposite the dot. The w

## Antenna Received Power measurement using VNA

Normally you measure S11 by transmitting to antenna under test and monitor using directional coupler with known S12 loss by calibration. then calculate Friss Loss vs distance and compare with known whip antenna gain. Ground planes affect gain and echoes off walls and nearby objects affect S11 which should be >-15dB. Then reverse antenna and repe

## antenna range measurement with and without using network analyzer

I do this all the time. Get a pair of known gain antennas. Point them at each other at your distance of interest (like 10 feet, 30 feet, whatever). Drive one of them with 10 dBm power level at the frequency of interest. Go to the other side and measure the received power. This is your "calibration" then replace the first antenna/source with

I had some (...)

## Please Guide me for designing the circuit

This design assumes a certain conductor resistance per km length to use Ohm's Law to measure distance. It ignores EMI induced into long transmission lines, ignores inductance and requires that no transformers be connected when the fault is detected which would cause measurement error. Most line fault detectors use a pulse with TDR method to loc

## Ultrasonic Distance Measurement Using HC-SR04 Sensor, PIC18F4580 and C18 Compiler

## Is it possible to build two-frequency distance measurement without swithcing?

I must confess that I don't even know what "old unmodulated CW radar" is. Classical radar is pulsed. The only fixed frequency CW applications I'm aware of are traffic speed control (and target lighting for surface-to-air missiles). Theoretically, you can determine the phase shift of reflected wave for two frequencies separately, both oscillators

## simple laser distance measurement/laser range finder

I doubt a plano-convex is going to be good enough to give you a good spot shape/size unless it was long focal length and small diameter. Similarly for focusing the received light onto the APD. Look for an asphere - there are quite a few low cost aspheres around that will do a lot better job. I have used some from Edmund Optics and they are very goo

## Ultrasonic measurement of water in the reservoir module

I used a low-cost (\$10, Craftsman) ultrasonic distance meter for similar purpose. Water and sand reflected well but wood chips were worse to measure in a high tank. You must experiment to see if ultrasonic sensors are good in your case. In some tanks secondary reflections make problems at certain levels. There are Ka-band radar meters for liquids

## Implementation Of an Algorithm For Distance Measurement on FPGA

## Help Required Regarding Velocity Estimation

Can you post your script? Also have you examined the raw data, do the values look realistic? I've done this kind of measurement with inexpensive accelerometer and gyro and without filtering of the raw data I could never get any sensible results (ie. speed, distance and direction).

## High precision short range distance measurement and monitoring solution

I doubt you will get 1mm accuracy with the Sharp sensor, let alone 0.1mm. I cannot see ultrasound being viable for that sort of accuracy. I would have said light was your best option. A coherent laser source using interferometry would be the most accurate but expensive and incremental. A modulated laser phase shift system might be the best
