Pressure and Flow Data Acquisition Measurements in Hydraulic Systems

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Think about the places hydraulics are used: cranes, backhoes, earthmoving equipment, lift gates and lifts of all kinds, amusement rides, your automobile. The list is almost endless. Behind the scenes of every hydraulic system are a host of pumps, motors, valves, seals, and other hardware that work as a system Read More

Pressure, Temperature, and Flow Data Acquisition Measurements in Injection Molding Machines

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements The operation of an injection molding machine is fairly simple in concept: Put plastic pellets in one end and force them with a worm gear through a tube under high pressure. The pressure creates heat that melts the pellets. The molten plastic is sucked into a mold. The plastic cools Read More

Data Acquisition Products Test Hydraulic Actuators

Data Acquisition > Mixed Measurements Note: The DI-740 mentioned below is now obsolete, replaced by the DI-808 or DI-2008. Both the DI-808 and DI-2008 include a 15VDC excitation supply and feature eight differential and isolated analog input channels, with programmable measurement ranges up to ±50V full scale.  It’s a critical constraint that demands a critical measurement: Your control signal says Read More

Extracting Volume from Flow Using Counters

Data Acquisition > Starter Kits > DI-149 Counters are used in a wide variety of data acquisition applications, from measuring radiation exposure to counting the number parts coming off of an assembly line. A particularly useful counter function is extracting volume from flow. This information is critical in a host of industries. In the aerospace Read More
