Capturing and Simulating Rotational and Jitter Angle-based Measurements

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.

Monitoring and Controlling a Die Casting Press

Adwin-Gold_data_acquisition_deviceA 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.

Injection Valve and Pump Testing in Real-Time

ADwin-Gold Real-Time Data Acquisition and Control System
CHESTERLAND OH—June 11, 2012

ADwin-Gold Real-Time Data Acquisition and Control SystemCAS 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.
