Ratiometric architectures, high-performance delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters, channel-to-channel isolation, and cold-junction compensation are just a few of the optimizations employed in the SC Express family. Read technical descriptions of the features that make these modules best in class.
Learn the basics of thermocouples, strain gages, pressure sensors, resistance temperature detectors (RTDs), and accelerometers, including history, terminology, compatible products, and wiring diagrams for each sensor.
Structural testing implies stimulating a test article while measuring the response with a data acquisition system. Signals from pressure sensors, load sensors, strain gages, thermocouples, accelerometers, and microphones distributed across the test article must be synchronized and properly conditioned to ensure all data is captured in as few runs as possible. SC Express delivers the channel counts and performance necessary with the reliability of real-time OS support to help you to test with confidence.
