A Multi-Channel, Multi-Mode Field Data Acquisition and Analysis System 871609
A STD Bus, PC-DOS based data acquisition system has been developed for collecting ride, function and fatigue data from field vehicles. The system is modular with a channel capacity of 8 to 32 channels when configured with a full set of conditioning modules. Several alternate storage media systems are available to provide efficient data storage and transfer to standard personal computer systems for analysis. A modest system extension expands the system to enable it to become a flexible development tool for closed-loop control concepts and algorithms.
