Testing and Instrumentation (TEST/INST)

The instrumentation consists of the data acquisition hardware, software, and various sensors that are distributed among different subsystems. The system uses LabVIEW software and various National Instruments cRIO hardware to export commands and import data. The commands are digital voltage signals that may actuate a valve or ignite an e-match. These events control the sequencing of operations during a test. The data that is read into LabVIEW for observation and recording comes from a mix of load cells, pressure transducers, and thermocouples.
