Stress Analysis Data System 6000


Stress, Analysis, Data, System, 6000 The new Stress Analysis Data System 6000 is a powerful hardware / software approach for Data Acquisition, Reduction and Presentation for Strain Gauges and related Sensors for Stress Analysis.

Stress Analysis Data System 6000 hardware is designed to incorporate all the features required for precision strain measurements under a variety of loading conditions while maintaining flexibility and ease of use. A system can be configured with from 1 to 1,200 sensors. Strain gauges, strain-gauge-based transducers, thermocouples, LVDT’s, potentiometers and other transducers can be intermixed by choosing the appropriate sensor card. Each Model 6100 Scanner (holding up to 20 input cards) functions independently and all System 6000 components can be easily configured for each test requirement.

Utilizing the benefits of individual analog-to-digital conversion on each channel and simultaneous sampling data acquisition for all channels, System 6000’s Model 6100 Scanners record test data at rates of up to 10,000 samples per second per channel of instrumentation hardware. The PCI hardware interface between the scanners and a PC running StrainSmart™ software in the Windows NT environment enables a combined throughput of up to 200,000 samples per second for all channels (for example, 20 channels at 10,000 samples per second per channel or 40 channels at 5,000 samples per second per channel).

The Measurements Group offers, through Intertechnology, a variety of measurement techniques to evaluate and refine designs of load bearing parts and structures for maximum reliability in service by eliminating causes of failure.

Applications include automotive, aerospace, farm machinery, metal stamping, pressure vessels, etc.
