DAQ in the Field The Keweenaw Research Center combines its knowledge of experimental stress analysis, vehicle mobility, data analysis, and computer based engineering into the area of data acquisition and instrumented testing. Using a variety of data acquisition hardware, software and techniques, KRC has proven itself to be a dependable, ready and adaptable source for high quality results. KRC has performed instrumented testing and data acquisition on a broad range of components and vehicles. Small scale components include engine mounts, exhaust headers, and suspension hardware can be tested as reliably and accurately as large scale components such as military transport trucks and armored vehicles.

Data Acquisition and Analysis Capabilities

Custom DAQ Computer KRC has the experience and capability to acquire noise and vibration data on virtually any structure in existence from the largest radio telescopes and civil engineering structures to the smallest turbine blades. KRC has the ability to acquire up to eighty-eight channels simultaneously in a mobile environment using its LMS RoadRunner system and up to eighty channels in a laboratory setting using one of its several Agilent VXI systems. KRC engineers have experience using all forms of transducers from strain gauges, accelerometers, and microphones to potentiometers and thermocouples.

KRC's analysis capabilities include the full range of experimental methods from modal analysis and operating shapes to simple frequency analysis to the most sophisticated sound quality and transfer path analysis (TPA) methods and everything in between. KRC has access to most major software packages and has close working relationships with most major software vendors. If you want data we can get it!
