Vibration amplifier for engine/APU testing

  • 26-Nov-2012 03:36 EST

Meggitt Sensing Systems’ Endevco 6634C vibration amplifier meets the rigorous demands of jet engine testing and aircraft auxiliary power unit (APU) vibration measurements. The microprocessor-based vibration amplifier is designed to condition and display rotating machinery data while offering simultaneous outputs as broadband, acceleration, velocity, and displacement. It accepts inputs from a single-ended, differential piezoelectric or ISOTRON (IEPE) accelerometer, velocity coil, or remote charge converter. Full-scale ac and dc output ranges, as well as sensitivity, are user-programmable in selectable engineering units. Up to 10 unique setups can be stored and recalled from the nonvolatile memory, while two alarm outputs provide warning and alert functions.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
