New Developments in Multi-channel Test Systems 1999-01-1854

A significant challenge in successful implementation of large channel count dynamic test systems, like multi-channel modal systems, has been efficient and error free test set-up and data collection. Newly developed instrumentation that digitally communicates self-identifying information (including transducer type and serial number, calibration value and physical location) greatly enhances system performance and drastically reduces the opportunity for human documentation errors. Sensors featuring this Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS, consistent with the impending IEEE P1451.4 standard), in addition to such techniques as sonic digitization for geometry definition and automated data acquisition with computer controlled, bank switching signal conditioners are continually improving accuracy and reducing the per channel price of multi-channel dynamic test systems.
