CHESTERLAND OH—January 30, 2012

CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the data acquisition solution for a customer operating a test laboratory to gauge the performance of residential dishwashers. The lab contained over 40 test bays for testing several different dishwasher models. Specialized equipment in these bays monitored water consumption and water temperatures of the dishwashers during the different washing cycles. Temperature measurement was conducted with type K thermocouples and the water consumption was measured using flow sensors with pulse signal outputs. Test leads searched for a high-speed data acquisition system capable of interfacing with these sensors with highly accurate measurements, fast signal processing capability, and intuitive, simple configurability and operation.
