Kistler’s Type K3880A KiDAU Advanced onboard data acquisition system was designed to surpass various passenger and military vehicle crash test, legislative, and safety and vehicle dynamics testing requirements. Compatible with Kistler crash data acquisition systems, KiDAU Advanced captures and stores test data before a vehicle or sled test is started to ensure complete system functionality and data preservation from the event trigger point. The system allows more than 8 min recording time and features up to 20 mA constant current excitation and high signal bandwidth. Adjustments are software implemented automatically or by command. Design of the Type K3880A includes 32 analog and 16 digital inputs, as well as a single CAN bus logging channel in a box measuring 231 x 64 x 70.5 mm (9.1 x 2.5 x 2.8 in).

Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Engineers are adding sensors, more powerful micros and faster networks as they automate tasks and pave the way to autonomy.
