# Digital Analog Tech Note 11 - TNDA11

## Products

Ditak6, Ditak7, Ditak8, Ditak9, APLR

## DITAK6, DITAK7, DITAK8, and APLR

### Step 1: Determine Timebase Increment Total (TBIT)

Desired Reading (DR) X Desired Display Point (DDP) X Product Constant*

Corresponding Revolutions per Minute (RPM) X Pulses per Rev (PPR)

**DR**: Desired reading at a specific RPM. (If displaying RPM then remove DRV and RPM from equation.)**DDP**: 0 (whole #) = 1, 0.0 (tenths of unit) = 10, 0.00 (hundreds of unit) = 100 (Ditak 8 does not have DDS)***Product Constant**: DITAK6 & DITAK7 = 15,360, DITAK8 = 15,361, APLR0 = 15,000**RPM**: The corresponding RPM for the DR**PPR**: Pulse per one revolution or one unit of measure

### Step 2: Enter Timebase Increment Total (TBIT)

Set to the "ON" position the Time Base DIP switches which together adds to the above TBIT.

### Step 3: Review The Display Update Time

The display update time in seconds = TBIT x 0.004

To improve the update time:

1. Enable frequency doubling and lower the TBIT and display update value by half.

2. Lower DDS by one position and lower the TBIT and display update value by a factor of 10.

#### GENERAL RULE

2 pulses per rev = 30 second update

20 pulses per rev = 3 second update

200 pulses per rev = .3 second update

## DITAK9 Using Known RPM

### Step 1: Calculate Time Base

Desired Reading (DR) X Desired Display Point (DDP)

Hertz (HZ)

### Step 2: Round Time Base (RTB)

Round the Calculated Time Base to nearest number between 1-7

### Step 3: Calculate the Remainder Multiplier (RM)

Desired Reading (DR) X Desired Display Point (DDP)

Rounded Time Base (RTB) X Hertz (HZ)

**DR**: Desired Reading at the specified RPM**Hertz (HZ)**: RPMs X Pulses per Revolution

60**DDP**: 0 (whole unit) = 1, 0.0 (tenths of unit) = 10, 0.00 (hundreds of unit) = 100

If RM is greater than 1.9999, then remove a decimal location or add more pulses per revolution.

## DITAK9 Using Known Pulses per Unit

### Step 1: Calculated Time Base

Time Factor (TF) X Desired Display Point (DDP)

Pulses Per Unit (PPU)

### Step 2: Round Time Base (RTB)

Round the Calculated Time Base to nearest number between 1-7.

### Step 3: Remainder Multiplier (RM)

Time Factor (TF) X Desired Display Point (DDP)

Rounded Time Base (RTB) X Pulses Per Unit (PPU)

**Time Factor**: Second = 1, Minute = 60, Hour = 3600**DDP**: 0 (whole unit) = 1, 0.0 (tenths of unit) = 10, 0.00 (hundreds of unit) = 100

RM is greater than 1.9999, then remove a decimal location or add more pulses per revolution.
