HANDHELD DATA ACQUISITION
General Handheld Data Acquisition Operations
The Crystal Instruments CoCo series are portable devices for handheld data acquisition, vibration monitoring, and predictive maintenance applications. The handheld data acquisition system consists of a CoCo analyzer and the Engineering Data Management (EDM) software. The CoCo is used to make field measurements and the EDM software in Vibration Data Collection (VDC) Mode is used to setup the CoCo hardware and define routes before field measurements, and to download data from the CoCo to analyze and archive afterwards.
EDM has a unique user interface that emphasizes graphical tools. The layout can be configured and customized to meet your specific needs. The software has been designed to make using the CoCo a streamlined process that makes measuring, analyzing, and documenting your work easier than ever.
Types of Measurements
The CoCo measures several different types of data during handheld data acquisition operations, including: gage readings, time waveforms, FFT spectra, and demodulation spectra.
Gage Readings for Handheld Data Acquisition
Gage readings are input manually by the user while collecting data on a Route. In addition, Readings are numerically displayed values such as time averaged RMS, peak to peak amplitude, and peak amplitude signals based on live data being acquired, calculated, and displayed by the VDC.
