Sound Measurement and Vibration Measurement with the MCC 172 and Raspberry Pi® The Element14 engineering community frequently hosts “RoadTest Reviews” in which engineers volunteer to test and review various products. This month, the MCC 172 was reviewed in a real world situation. Jan Cumps, the reviewer, built a vibration test to analyze the behavior of devices when they are shaken. How did the MCC 172 do?
The MCC 172 is a two channel DAQ HAT for making sound and vibration measurements from IEPE sensors like accelerometers and microphones. It features a 24-bit A/D per channel and a maximum sample rate of 51.2 kS/s/Ch.
