ENGINEERING AND ENVIRONMENT TESTS

Tranduscers, data acquisition & processing

Means

Specialised technicians equip test specimens with linear or angular displacement transducers, strain gauges, pressure gauges, flow-meters, temperature, thermal flux, electrical parameters or speed measuring devices.

Features / technical details

Characteristics

Acquisition rate maximum of 2400 measurements/s. Measurements are conditioned, digitally recorded, then processed (up to 6000 channels). They are then validated and analysed by specialists.
