Data Acquisition Systems
Data acquisition (DAQ) is the process of measuring an electrical or physical phenomenon such as voltage, current, temperature, pressure, or sound with a computer. A DAQ system consists of sensors, DAQ measurement hardware, and a computer with programmable software. Compared to traditional measurement systems, PC-based DAQ systems exploit the processing power, productivity, display, and connectivity capabilities of industry-standard computers providing a more powerful, flexible, and cost-effective measurement solution. These data acquisition systems are mainly for monitoring and regulating manufacturing processes and systems.
Our flexible and collaborative approach delivers efficient, accurate, and robust data acquisition systems, as well as the tools to leverage data for effective results analysis. We develop systems using a variety of software and hardware platforms (custom and off-the-shelf), data acquisition systems, and control methods.
Stability team leverages a variety of programming platforms for success in Test & Measurement solutions. These include LabVIEW and text-based languages (Python, Java and more).
Research and Analysis
Characterizing and logging behaviors or properties Discovering scientific phenomena Systematically investigating new products and designs.
Design Validation and Verification
Confirming that a system meets initial design specifications Establishing evidence that a product meets its users’ needs Testing adherence to an industry standard
Manufacturing and Quality Test
Performing functional and system-level product test End-of-line pass/fail quality testing Checking for defective products and subsystems
Diagnostics and Repair
Identifying the cause of failure Manual and ad-hoc troubleshooting Characterizing malfunctioning systems
Asset Condition Monitoring
Long-term, continuous monitoring of equipment Identifying problems before failure occurs Trending, logging, and alarming in the event of error conditions
PC-Based Control and Automation
Controlling processes without human interaction Automating the operation of machinery Performing open-loop and closed-loop control, such as PID
