Developing a Custom Life-Cycle Test Platform for Recaro Aircraft Seating

To ensure the functionality and safety of its aircraft seats, Recaro Aircraft Seating, a leading global aircraft seat manufacturer, needs to perform numerous life-cycle tests. Each life-cycle test requires specific setup conditions and various instruments and actuators to simulate a lifetime of wear and tear inflicted on aircraft seats.

How to Get Started with Derived Channels in LabVIEW

Your system has all the hardware to measure all your signals. Now how do you get measurements from relative channels, such as a Rosette strain measurement, which are dependent on three physical channels? Is there a way to measure cumulative volume or even a delta pressure? These formulas vary by the test, so how can you create a dynamic calculator to get these results in real time? Typically, these channels are calculated in post processing.

New Automated Leak Detection System Ensures Airtight Operation

We recently announced the G Systems Valve Leak Measurement System (VLMS), a low-flow leak detection product that reliably measures slow leaks that are unidentifiable with conventional leak detectors. This system is already helping manufacturers test and ensure that critical valve seals are airtight and it is perfect for applications that require a zero or near-zero leak rate, including medical devices, pharmaceutical equipment, and oil, gas, and plumbing valves.
