CAS DataLoggers recently provided the data acquisition and control solution for a factory supervisory team looking to solve a quality control problem on their main manufacturing line. Their process was experiencing issues from a valve controlling an air jet used to blow faulty-looking components off the line after they failed an optical inspection. However, these parts often kept moving down the line rather than being immediately rejected as intended. The team contacted CAS DataLoggers to suggest an ideal DAQ system.

CAS DataLoggers recently supplied an advanced DAQ system for an automotive manufacturer who needed to evaluate the reliability of a prototype vehicle’s braking system. The front disk pad temperatures, MPH, average deceleration and braking duration all needed to be recorded immediately before the brakes were applied. Therefore the customer needed a data acquisition device which could quickly ‘drill down’ on the braking event’s data and store the data on external RAM, and which also offered flexible communications capabilities with a PC.

Capturing and simulating the high-speed rotations involved in automated machines and test rigs often plays a major role in industrial automotive applications. Common requirements are accurate speed measurement over a large range of operation, detection of speed changes, capturing jitter, jitter simulation, and angle-based data acquisition. The Applications Specialists at CAS DataLoggers have put together this article to present some practical approaches to accomplish these tasks using an ADwin data acquisition system.

A large manufacturer operating die cast presses found that their conventional PLCs weren’t up to the task of maintaining tight process control, so they turned to CAS DataLoggers to provide them with a highly accurate data acquisition solution. This custom-designed device centered around an ADwin-Gold data acquisition and control system with response times measured in useconds. Read more on our Equipment Monitoring Application Notes page.
ADwin-Gold Data Acquisition System
CHESTERLAND OH—July 2, 2012
CAS DataLoggers Sales Manager Pete Martin impressed attendees with a unique ADwin demonstration at a successful exhibition at the 2012 Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) Executive Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. This demo utilizes an interesting program highlighting how to achieve microsecond response times with a measurement and control system while operating in the Microsoft Windows environment, employing an inverted pendulum, which is highly unstable unlike the balance of a regular pendulum.

ADwin-Gold Real-Time Data Acquisition and Control System
CHESTERLAND OH—June 11, 2012
CAS DataLoggers recently provided the datalogging solution for a large manufacturer who needed to test its injection valves and pumps to be used in a wide variety of engines. These valves consisted of compact modules containing the magnetic circuit and the valve unit, controlled by a digital signal from the ECU (electronic control unit) which started the movement of the valve. Wear on the proportional valves also needed to be recorded over millions of cycles. A proposed test target was to detect the timing of this movement in every injection spray cycle in a durability test stand, which meant 6000RPM 50x per second, or every 2nd revolution of the crankshaft.
