FIELD TESTING HEAVY EQUIPMENT

MEASURING STRAIN, VIBRATION & PRESSURE IN SITU

The Challenge:

  • Collecting physical measurements on heavy equipment like tractors, cranes and earth movers
  • Measuring structural stress, strain, acceleration or hydraulic pressure in the field
  • Human factor testing including vehicle safety or usage vibration data
  • Unpredictable environmental factors like weather and temperature
  • Complicated cable runs that can get tangled, damaged or alter test dynamics
  • Space, size and weight constraints for instrumentation
  • Remote locations with limited access to power or communication signals

The Solution:

  • Ultra-small DTS data acquisition systems and sensors
  • Designed to embed on or in test articles for cable-free testing
  • Positioning the DAS near the sensors improves data quality and reduces set-up time
  • Modular systems, user configurable, ideal for low or high-channel count tests
  • Supports a variety of external sensors or built-in sensor options
  • IP68 rated systems available for dust and water ingress
  • Store in place reliability, data writes directly to flash memory
  • Easy, intuitive software for set-up, logging, viewing and data export
