Abstract:
The Telemetry Transducer Handbook was prepared in an effort to present information and data useful to the transducer user. The characteristics are discussed of the transmission system and its relation to transducers and telemetry systems. A guide is presented to more specialized investigation of the many aspects of telemetry systems. The fundamentals involved in various physical measurements and how these fundamentals are employed in the general design of transducers are presented. Measurements of displacement, strain, pressure, fluid flow, rotary speed, fuel quantity, ac power, acceleration, temperature, shock and vibration and thrust are discussed. General information and examples in the application of telemetry transducers are presented. Testing and calibration techniques and facilities available are also presented. A list of performance reports available from NBS offers some evaluation information on telemetry transducers. An extensive bibliography is presented with 835 listings. An index to the bibliography is also included.
