Aerospace/Defense Applications Demand High Performance, Density, and Reliability

May 3, 2022

Automated test systems for aerospace/defense programs require instruments, programmable power supplies and loads, and high-density switching systems designed for reliability, performance, and flexibility. AMETEK Programmable Power and AMETEK VTI Instruments stand ready to assist the aerospace/defense community in implementing its core testing strategy. Previously, the industry had deployed a dedicated test station for each device under test (DUT). In contrast, the core testing strategy deploys one universal test station that can test various types of DUTs. The universal test station includes large switching systems that interconnect a superset of the instruments that can test all the target DUTs.

Focus on Operating Cost Savings when Choosing a High-Channel-Count DAQ System

April 27, 2022

Operating expenditures can be substantial over the operating lifetime of a high-channel-count data acquisition (DAQ) system. Consider all the aspects that can contribute to operating costs, ranging from setup and wiring to expenses you can incur if a lengthy test needs to be redone because of a faulty sensor or a network crash. When choosing a DAQ system, carefully evaluate how you can significantly reduce such operating costs with a very slight increase in up-front capital expenditures—in short, nudge up CAPEX to slash OPEX.

Improve Your Data Acquisition with AMETEK Programmable Power’s Complete Guide to Better Measurements

June 24, 2021

You need better sensors. Why? Because a single bad sensor could cause your functional tests to fail, wasting millions of dollars if you are testing something like a missile or a jet engine in a one-shot destructive test. A failed test is not even the worst-case scenario. Imagine what is at stake if a bad sensor gives you a false positive, leading to your device failing out in the field – all of which could have been avoided by getting the right sensors.
