I'm trying to creat a data acquisition system using:

  • computer
  • Geosig ve-53
  • KPci3101

from the seismic sensor's manual we can see that every pin's output is a 5 volt (or 10?), my question is, how can i know the velocity of the vibration since the output will be the same? ( I'm not a physicist )

  • $\begingroup$ It is a digital data so it's always 5V, it would output different patterns of 1's and 0's, you have to interpret these $\endgroup$ – Oswald Feb 21 '16 at 1:57
  • $\begingroup$ @Qmechanic you might be right $\endgroup$ – Mehdi ouahabi Feb 21 '16 at 2:52
  • $\begingroup$ @TheGhostOfPerdition i think i got the idea now everytime i'll get a different 1 and 0 combination and it's up to me to interpret it into a spectrograms. $\endgroup$ – Mehdi ouahabi Feb 21 '16 at 2:52
