Morning, Apologies if cross posting or missed something obvious but very new labjack and DAQFactory. Any pointers to existing files, posts, and comments warmly received
I have just picked a half completed test rig that I have been asked to finish within the next 48hrs so as to allow some testing that will affect the use of some equipment on a big sporting event.
Are there any examples of a tachometer using open collector square wave?
I need to get the RPM of a shaft, the problem is that the hardware gives 360 counts per rev, believe it’s really meant for angle measurement not tacho. With a shaft of up to 125 rpm that’s 750 pulses per second. An update of the rpm once a second would be fine, but don’t know if I can count fast enough. I’m very very new to labjack and when I did something similar before it was with NI kit and think did it in hardware. Maybe I’m over simplifying it but count how many pulses in a second, do the math then send results to DAQFactory. Really looking forward to learning the full potential but if there is an example i can learn from it would be a great help
Apologies if cross posted but desperate to get this working or at least find out if possible and work out a plan B if not
