For raising the standards of production and living, the measuring of electrical or physical quantities, such as current, voltage, strain, temperature, and pressure, are essential. This is why, over the years, several research institutes at the University of Siegen have used measurement technology in their research projects. As far back as in the beginning of 1975, strain gauges and measuring equipment manufactured by HBM were employed at the University of Siegen. Later, HBM measuring systems with three or even six and more amplifiers were used to determine strain and/or displacement. Some of them have been in use for more than four decades, which speaks for itself. Recently, several HBM Genesis HighSpeed data acquisition (DAQ) systems, such as GEN7t and GEN17tA, have been used in projects at different institutes at the University of Siegen.
“With the data provided by the strain gauges and DAQ system, stress-strain curves of sandwich T-joints under static and dynamic loads were created. The obtained curves indicate the load carrying capacities of these structural elements.”
“This is a unique high speed measurement software that automatically detects all available Genesis HighSpeed systems. With Perception, fast and reliable processing is achievable and StatStream technology enables the software to visualize up to 10 gigabytes of data in 10 seconds. In addition, control and updates can be carried out from any computer.”
