The Validyne VDAS integrates all your data
acquisition requirements for vehicle testing into one compact, rugged system.
Up to 300 vehicle sensor channels can be accepted by the VDAS so that time
consuming change-outs of instrumentation packages can be minimized. The same
VDAS is easily shared by several test groups; system configurations can be
saved and re-loaded as needed.
The VDAS is optimized for vehicle thermal
testing. Each thermocouple plug-in module accepts up to 20 J, K or T sensors
and provides a linearized, cold junction compensated reading accurate to 0.1%.
The same module can be configured by software to accept voltages from 50 mV to
50 V full scale, in 4 different ranges with 16 bit resolution.
The strain gage module accepts up to 10 inputs
with selectable 5 or 10 Vdc excitation. Lead wire compensation is supported
with 5-wire input configurations. Bridge completion and shunt calibration
resistors may be connected to user accessible screw terminals. The strain gage
module features programmable full-scale ranges of 4, 8, 16 and 32 mV/V. The
accuracy is ±0.025% with 16 bit resolution over the selected range.
The frequency input module accepts up to 8
inputs of ±10, ±50 or ±500 V (peak) and can be configured to measure pulse
width, duty cycle, counts and frequency in Hz. The range is 0.5 Hz to 100 KHz.
The VDAS system comes complete with PC software
for setup and data recording that runs under Windows. All channels are
configured with a spreadsheet-like setup screen and include parameters such as
name, sensor type, scaling formula, triggering thresholds, DSP settings and
optional alarm points.
Real-time data screens with selectable font
sizes provide user-friendly viewing of critical measurements during road
testing. A bar graph display is also available for selected channels. All data
is stored to the PC hard drive. Any laptop PC can be used with the VDAS for
maximum flexibility and fast, on-site data analysis.
The VDAS is Ideal for:
Vehicle HVAC Testing
Radiator/A.C. Condenser Testing
Aircraft Flight Testing
