Real-Time Machine Condition Monitoring of Rotating Parts
By: CAS DataLoggers
Automotive test bench applications require real-time test and measurement for quality requirements and to lower recall rates. To achieve this, the use of data acquisition and control systems is especially common in test stand setups and machine condition monitoring. In particular, product quality technicians and test system integrators who need to view accurate data from rotating/spinning parts in motors, car engines, etc. are often concerned with the precise angular location of the moving part.

Monitoring Rotating Machines and Parts
In many automotive test stand applications, users need to collect and analyze data taken at specific angles of rotation. For example, every time a rotating part is at a 30° angle, users can use an ADwin automation system's Event input along with an encoder to accurately monitor or detect a certain measurement value such as Temperature, Speed, RPM, and more.
Unique ADwin Features:
• Sample rate of 2 MHz aggregate, to 50 MHz per channel; response time of 1 usecond or less
• Tightly-coupled, integrated Analog and Digital I/O
• Counter/timer channels and Event input
• Extremely low-latency operation
• Test bench control capability
The compact ADwin-Light-
Monitoring Multiple Test Benches
The ADwin-Gold is a standalone, external system suitable for monitoring data from one or two test stands. The system features a Ethernet interface for data retrieval or connection to PC based operator interfaces.
For high-channel test bench applications, users can also use the ADwin-PRO ll system. PRO ll systems use ADwin's powerful T-12 processor module to provide the highest real-time computing power for machine monitoring applications.
Visualization and Compiling
The ADwin software environment can be used under all versions of Windows (including 10) and Linux, or as a stand-alone data acquisition system. ADwin has an interface library for all of the most common GUI and development packages including Visual Basic, Visual C/C++, LabVIEW/LabWindows, TestPoint and others.
Real-Time System Benefits
ADwin systems offer test engineers and test bench integrators a competitive advantage by way of their extreme speed; not only fast sampling rates but also compiling times.
