TELEMETRY SYSTEM THAT UTILIZES STRAIN GAUGE SENSORS ( STRAIN , VIBRATION and MEMS ACCELEROMETER and MORE)
In this iNote Ron Rath, CEO at TECAT discusses a new telemetry system that incorporates Micro-Measurements strain gage sensors and MEMS accelerometer to report torque, vibration and acceleration from an automotive universal joint. (Automotive Testing Expo 2018, Novi MI, USA).
TECAT’s WISER systems are the smallest, lightest, and most power-efficient solutions available for the measurement of torque, acceleration, pressure, temperature, distance, and magnetization. The WISER 8000 is comprised of three subsystems. The remote unit consists of the data capture electronics connected to Micro-Measurements strain gauges, a transceiver, and a long-life battery. The base unit plugs directly into a PC USB port and houses an antenna, transceiver, and up to eight analog outputs. The WISER Data Viewer software is used for system configuration and calibration, live monitoring, and data logging.
About TECAT Performance Systems
TECAT Performance Systems was founded in 2010 by Dr. Douglas Baker, CTO and inventor of its torque telemetry system. The company designs and manufactures the smallest, lightest, most power-efficient wireless sensors available. These features enable the measurement of torque, acceleration, and atmospheric data in places never before accessed. The company is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
