Leuven, Belgium – May 26, 2009 LMS, the engineering innovation company, announces the introduction of its new mobile durability data acquisition solution - the LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder. The new system is designed for truly rugged data acquisition in extreme conditions, making it fully resistant to water, dust, dirt, shock, vibrations and jolts associated with real-life testing. It offers a unique combination of strain-based, vibration and displacement measurements in one single system. This eliminates capital investments in multiple systems, and guarantees optimal efficiency during expensive field tests. With the LMS SCADAS Smart Control, users can instantly validate the quality of recorded data on the spot, avoiding an expensive rerun of the test campaign.
The LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder is a compact and rugged instrument with true MIL-STD-810F compliancy. Its sturdy and robust design can stand up to the most extreme climate, shock and vibration conditions. The MIL-STD-810F certified LEMO connectors on the LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder ensure vibration-resistant cable connections. The system is available in a sealed version to resists dust and water according ingress protection code IP54.
Besides being rough-n-tough, the LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder is strikingly independent. No PC is required during measurement and all the acquired data and the conversation formats are saved on high-performance, solid-state CompactFlash memory cards. The system also includes the LMS SCADAS Smart Control, a Windows Mobile PDA solution to monitor and validate data in real-time during and directly after measurements. This allows users to efficiently guarantee data quality before the end of the test campaign and to eliminate needless test reruns.
The LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder can be equipped with a range of universal modules. Users can expand their system from mobile data acquisition for durability to human body vibration testing, sound power homologation, structural and modal analysis, and rotating machinery testing – all based on one single system.
“Durability data acquisition is an expensive and time-consuming process, with stressful deadlines and difficult working conditions. The LMS SCADAS Durability Recorder offers the perfect fit for these challenging tests, combining a compact design with full measurement power and flexibility,” commented Bruno Massa, Vice President of the LMS Test Division. “The new SCADAS system adds on to the complete LMS portfolio of products and services covering the entire durability process - from realistic design and validation with accurate loads to accelerated durability testing and simulation techniques.”
