Test Measurement DAQ for SEDS sponsored by Gantner Instruments

Gantner Instruments, Inc. is proud to be a platinum sponsor of the SEDS-Students for the Exploration and Development of Space-organization at the University of California San Diego. Gantner Instruments provided the data acquisition system required for their Colossus Static Fire System Test Stand. This full test system is complete with Gantner’s Q.station PLC controller, precision DAQ modules for TC, Voltage, Current, Resistance and Pt100.

The Gantner Instruments DAQ system is designed to receive signals from the test stand’s sensors and send reports back to the operator for monitoring and control. The Q.station controller is being programmed to automatically respond to errors and actuate fire safety valves to prevent System failures.

Construction recently began on the test stand by the SEDS software and electronics team.  Gantner Instruments Technical Support team provided training on the use of the hardware and software and help with the initial configuration of the test stand DAQ system.
We will post more updates as construction continues on the Colossus project!

6 Tips for Stress-free Strain Measurement during Fatigue Testing of Aircraft Structures

Strain is the single most important measurement during aircraft fatigue testing. The accuracy and precision of strain gauge measurements is of the greatest importance to exactly determine the durability and damage tolerance of a structure. The higher a structure is in the ‘pyramid of test’, the higher the test complexity, number of measurement channels, and data produced. On top of that the risk in terms of time delay and cost associated to a test program increases more than proportional with the increase in test complexity. Here are six tips to help you choose the right data acquisition system for your fatigue test:
