Loadstar Sensors’ iPedal brake testing solution includes a sensor and an interface with optional application software to improve use with digital USB or analog 0-5 V dc output. The aluminum sensors are designed to measure brake force at accuracies up to 1%, minimize error due to off-axis loads, and improve brake testing efficiency. Signal conditioning and communications are integrated into the sensor itself, and iPedal is offered with the company’s DS-3000U Display & Controller to provide real-time readings and a PC connection option. Users can log data and export to an Excel file for further analysis. The iPedal Analog outputs a linear, 0.5 to 4.5 V dc signal proportional to the applied load.

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).
The MTEK Subsystem (Marvin Test Expansion Kit) from Marvin Test Solutions (MTS), Inc. adds test capabilities to legacy semiconductor test systems that lack the ability to meet the test requirements of current devices.
Engineers are adding sensors, more powerful micros and faster networks as they automate tasks and pave the way to autonomy.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
