Testing Jet Turbine Engines

Engineers tasked with testing jet engine technologies face complex challenges. With a focus on jet engine efficiency, engine technologies evolve rapidly; engineers must ensure that test capabilities keep up with these changes. New test technologies increase the value of test data and ensure that facilities operate at maximum efficiency. Engineers face these requirements when implementing these technologies to design a jet engine test solution:


  • Minimize time between jet engine tests to maximize use of jet engine test cell resources
  • Support simultaneous collection of many types of jet engine signals
  • Reduce cabling by moving measurement equipment close to the sensor
  • Minimize downtime in engine test cell due to maintenance and repair​

Turbine Engine Test System

  • The rugged FieldDAQ™ form factor of allows engineers to minimize cabling distance from the jet engine.
  • CompactDAQ and CompactRIO allow distribution around the jet engine test facility to reduce cabling to sensors.
  • PXI systems provide a high-performance PCI Express platform for maximum performance at the lowest cost.
  • SystemLink monitors test assets and facility systems to reduce downtime for maintenance and repair.
  • LabVIEW with the LabVIEW Real-Time Module and LabVIEW FPGA Module allow system designers to customize every aspect of system control.
