A critical factor in successful durability engineering is gaining a precise understanding of the loads that products will undergo during their anticipated lifetimes. Accurate data acquisition and processing, however, can be challenging and time consuming.
With a distributed architecture, digitalization close to the sensors and built-in synchronization with LMS SCADAS Recorder, multiple LMS SCADAS Satellite units can be used in tough testing conditions for high channel count measurements. This saves on cabling cost, improves signal quality and allows faster test setup and results delivery.
- Reduced Test Campaign Costs
When testing large structures, a centralized set-up increases instrumentation costs: numerous long cables need to be installed. In case of a sensor or cable problem, repair is a real challenge. A distributed set-up with LMS SCADAS Satellite placed near the sensors and connected with one single wire to LMS SCADAS Recorder simplifies instrumentation and repair and reduces cabling and installation costs.
- Improved Signal Quality
Lengthy cables compromise signal accuracy. Strain gages and accelerometers are sensitive to noise pickup, electromagnetic interference and noise distortion. LMS SCADAS Satellite brings digitalization close to the sensor and provides digital and synchronized data to LMS SCADAS Recorder, improving signal quality.
- Validating the Extremes
With an IP66/67-certified enclosure, an operating temperature range from -40 °C (-40 °F) to +85 °C (185 °F) and MIL-STD-810F shock and vibration resistance, LMS SCADAS Satellite is designed to confidently execute your test campaigns in the toughest environments.
- Reduced Test Campaign Time
Thanks to the LMS Test.Lab Time Acquisition software, you have control over the full test campaign: fast and easy LMS SCADAS Satellite setup, instrumentation verification, infield measurement and onboard validation, automated consolidation, active reporting and batch export. An end-to-end hardware and software solution delivers results much faster, gains measurement flexibility and reduces the overall test campaign time.
