Frequency to Voltage Conversion

Frequency to Voltage Conversion
A transducer produces a sine-wave output dependant on the voltage-input; here is how to decode that output with a scope or a ScopeCorder. 
For 3kV input, the transducer outputs 100Hz.
For 30kV, the transducer outputs 1,000Hz.
Input waveform goes into ScopeCorder function (or scope) with /G2.
Sine wave goes into CH1.
M1=BIN(CH1) ... M1 is square wave with same frequency as trandsucer output.
M2=PWHH(M1) ... here we are measuring the pulse width of the M1 waveform.
M3 = 30*1/M2  ..
Go to MEASURE menu and take MAX(M3) .. or AVG(M3) and you now have a numerical result on-screen. Please do not use ROLL MODE. 
If ROLL MODE is a requirement, or for improved accuracy, use a FREQUENCY Module (701280) with linear scaling AX+B where A=30 and B=0.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes

A mixed signal oscilloscope is an instrument enabling the simultaneous, time correlated observations and analysis of analog with digital (logic) signals, to establish causal relationships between the various areas of a device's electronics. They are purpose-built tools for troubleshooting electrical anomalies, measuring parametric values, and monitoring cause and effect relationships between signals.


Oscilloscopes are a common type of test instrument used to capture, analyze, and troubleshoot electrical or real world physical signals. Oscilloscopes observe the change of electrical signals over time, continuously graphed on a display as voltage or amplitude vs. time.


A ScopeCorder is an instrument combining a mixed signal oscilloscope and portable data acquisition recorder into a modular platform designed to capture both high-speed transients and low speed trends. Yokogawa’s ScopeCorder product family provides flexible and high-performance multi-channel test instruments by combining a variety of signal conditioning input modules, on-board calculations, and deep data acquisition storage into a off-the-shelf data acquisition solution.
