Hi, I need help on the subject. We have a very old turbomachienery balancing machine, their is a round graduated strip on a machine which shows the angle. I need suggestions from the forum members how and what devices i required to display the angle of the shaft.
Example: 1- Shaft is stopped and its angle is set to ZERO. 2- Now shaft is rotated at about 1500 RPM and the machine is stopped. The machine tell us unbalance weight and the angle on an Analog dial. 3- Currently, we manually rotate the shaft and stop it at that angle using graduated strip. 4- Is it possible i have an LCD display that shows me exact angle +-1 degree.
I have little experience in Arduino Programming. LCD and Arduino is available. Do i need encoder? Anybody point me to the direction.
I can explain much better if above is not understandable. Regards
