Understanding Noise Levels and Installation Considerations

 

In part one, we discussed the four types of noise frequently found in instrumentation circuits (i.e., Common Mode, Cross Talk, Static and Magnetic) as well as the methods used to correct the problems they cause.

 

Next, we discuss the types of noise levels found in various environments and some installation considerations that will help you mitigate or completely eliminate the noise problems.

4 Common Sources of Noise that Affect Instrumentation Circuits

 

It can be a real challenge to select the right thermocouple wire. You not only have to determine the type of thermocouple elements to use, but also the temperature range, calibration accuracy and insulation type  for your application. With thousands of different configurations, it’s still far less complicated than thermocouple and instrumentation cable circuits. Regardless, it is important to know how to control noise in instrumentation circuits.
