NOV (National Oilwell Vacro) is a global company in the fields of drilling and conveying technology. NOV supports the world’s most advanced drilling solutions in the oil and gas industry.
Here almost 150 measuring channels are used in a test system:
- 10 x IEPE with 5 x Q.bloxx A101
- 24 x current with 3 x Q.bloxx A108
- 12 x Pt100 with 3 x Q.bloxx A107
- 96 x SG with 12 x Q.bloxx A116
- Multiple digital I/Os
The measured data is recorded at a sample rate of 10 kHz. A data logger was configured in the Q.station test controller that records the conditioned and raw data. The recorded data is transferred to a SQL database using the test.node server software.
At present, four test systems are being built; with additional systems being planned. Testing is performed in cooperation with our Danish partner IPC Teknik ApS.
Turbomeca Chooses the Q.series
Turbomeca is a french manufacturer of compressors and turbines for the aviation industry, among its customers Eurocopter, Augusta und Sikorsky. For the test and measurement design of future test stands were the products from four manufacturers tested, and the companies rated on quality in production, and in all functional processes. Turbomeca selects Gantner Instruments GmbH as manufacturer and accredited according to strict rules. Gantner Instruments is exclusively represented by BGP Electronic in France.Read more...
Portable and Mobile Data Acquisition Systems
There are many reasons for a flexible and robust measurement system that must be easy to transport to collect measurement data at different locations. These can be, e.g., short-term measurements on machines or plant components during commissioning after maintenance or recurring measurements on bridges or other engineering structures.Read more...

Our new fiber optic measurement – without the hassle
Fiber optic measurement methods come with the advantage of being insensitive to interference from the environment. We all know that. What we also know is that actually using them in test and monitoring projects was not so easy so far. Either because there were steep learning curves or simply no integrated DAQ solution available. However, we have great news for you!Read more...
