Measurement Attenuation and Deception Tips

Sensor lags, transmitter damping, and PID signal filters can make oscillations look better but is this really a good a thing? Here we look at how these dynamics affect what you see and how much of a problem it can be.

What is the Best Transmitter Damping or Signal Filter Setting?

A transmitter damping setting or signal filter setting that is too slow can not only degrade performance but also cause trips. Less understood is that a large filter setting can mislead operations into thinking the filter has helped rather than hurt the process.
