Our EU partners at Haptica Milano are employing our wireless torque monitoring technology to help their client diagnose a torsional vibration issue on vehicle shafts and its relation to resonances in the body. Our wireless torque modules powered by our newest Equinox telemetry is capable of 31ksps of dynamic and static strain for measuring torsion, […]
Testing long distance data transmission of high-bandwidth sensor data @ beautiful Newfound Lake in New Hampshire. We tested two different antenna types, both were successful in transmitting data from 4 of our coaxial vibration sensors @ a bandwidth of 22kHz each, over a distance of 4.66 miles (7.5km).
The situation: Von Mises stress calculations on Hydro unit forced plant operators to run well below rated capacity of 57.5MW. Running at 55MW, the rotor was calculated to be exceeding the material limits of 8000psi shear and 13,333.33psi von Mises combined stress when running at capacity. The solution: live torque monitoring of the shaft (as […]
Quick update and demo of Acheron’s new remote sensor streaming option. It allows data from Suprock sensors to be streamed from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection. As always, Acheron software is free with purchase of Suprocktech sensors. Available in the latest version now.
Dr. Suprock demonstrates our high-temp strain gages’ remarkable stability at extreme temperatures (1,200°F) The max constant operating temp of our gages is currently 1800°F/980°C. Even better, this stability comes with supersonic frequency bandwidth, useful for gas turbine combustion dynamics, HRSG monitoring, boiler pipe crack monitoring, etc. These strain gages can now be “printed” onto metal […]
