MICROCOMPUTER SYSTEM FOR LOGGING VIBRATING WIRE GAUGES

A microcomputer controlled logger for controlling and monitoring up to 256 vibrating wire strain gauges is described. Sophisticated data loggers have been developed for use with various sensors producing voltage outputs. The logger described here is capable of handling vibrating wire gauges in a similar manner enabling long term monitoring to be carried out without operator intervention but with a high degree of confidence in the results obtained. The system represents a low-cost solution to the intelligent logging of vibrating wire gauges. (Author/TRRL)
