In this lab students will complete hands-on activities to measure, calibrate, and analyze common physical properties/phenomena. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Temperature

by Quanser Inc.

In this lab students will use a thermistor to collect temperature data, calibrate the sensor, and determine its thermal time-constant. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Pressure

by Quanser Inc.

In this lab students learn about pressure measurement and calibration through hands on activities with a capacitive pressure transducer. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Angular Displacement

by Quanser Inc.

Students will calibrate a potentiometer and incremental encoder for accurately measuring angular displacements, and will examine decoding algorithms for encoders. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Inertial Measurement

by Quanser Inc.

This lab explores acceleration, rotation, and magnetic field measurements using an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensor. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Strain Gage

by Quanser Inc.

In this lab, students will learn take measurements from and calibrate a strain gage, and then find the natural frequency of a beam. Designed for use with NI ELVIS III.
Distance and Proximity

by Quanser Inc.

Students complete hands-on activities involving sensor calibration, measurement scatter, and target reflectivity with sonar, time-of-flight, and infrared sensors. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
Contact

by Quanser Inc.

In this lab students will learn about sensing contact through hands-on activities with switch debouncing and capacitive touch sensors. Designed for NI ELVIS III.
