This measurement to digital value converter will convert any linear measurement over a specified range to the equivalent digital value as a decimal (base 10) and binary (base 2) number.
Enter the measurement value you wish to convert into a digital number.
Lowest Measurement Reading
This represents the minimum possible value of the measurement range, and its value should be in the same units as those used for the Reading and Highest value.
Highest Measurement Reading
This should be the maximum possible measured value that can be handled by the digital device, and the value must be in the same units of measurement as the Reading and Lowest value.
Number of Bits
This defines the resolution achievable by the digital device, and the larger the number of bits, the greater the number of possible digital values and therefore a more precise digital number.
This is the equivalent measurement converted to a base 10 digital number, e.g. 8 bit full scale = 255
Binary Number Value
This is the equivalent measurement converted to a base 2 digital number, e.g. 8 bit full scale = 11111111
How is the measurement converted to a digital value if it falls between two digital number?
All measurement values when converted are rounded down to the nearest digital value.
