Instrumentation & Data Acquisition
Capturing performance data directly in the lab or from the field for analysis is at the heart of all WESTST testing services. WESTEST data acquisition equipment can capture a wide range of precise and repeatable data at high sample rates. Equally important is ensuring captured data can be effectively analyzed and interpreted with powerful data assessment programs and integrated with other WESTEST systems and software.
Full Equipment Mobility Provides Efficient Data Collection in the Lab and in the Field
WESTEST employs advanced Somat eDaq data acquisition systems that are fully mobile and can be set up and configured to measure and gather data over a wide range of performance parameters in the field. This data can be taken back to the lab for analysis, and in many cases performance characteristics measured in the field can be replicated in the lab for closer study or to isolate their effects on individual components.
Common signals we measure and record include:
- Power / Torque / RPM
Our mobile data acquisition systems feature selectable sample rates up to 100,000 samples/second and collects data on such parameters as force, strain, acceleration, pressure, temperature, speed, flow, torque and displacement. The data can be easily imported to data analysis programs and integrated with computer models to help engineers during the design or problem-solving process. WESTEST also has numerous engineering software packages to assess product durability using collected data and material properties.
