National Instruments structural test systems provide a complete PXI-based solution for static load, fatigue, aerodynamic, impact, vibration, blast, and ballistics testing applications. The preconfigured systems include a variety of hardware and software options to meet your diverse requirements. The systems are scalable from 1 to 136 strain channels and can accommodate a wide range of measurement types. National Instruments also offers a variety of other modules and synchronization options that can be added to these systems to expand functionality and channel count.
The NI structural test systems feature several options for PXI chassis and controllers depending on the size of your application and whether you need a controller to run a Windows OS or a real-time OS. The systems offer different combinations of key PXI Express data acquisition modules, including an NI PXIe-433x for bridge measurements, the NI PXIe-4498 for sound and vibration measurements, the NI PXIe-4353 for thermocouple measurements, and the NI PXIe-6361 for analog and digital I/O. Each module requires a compatible accessory for connectivity.
NI structural test systems include NI LabVIEW, a graphical programming environment with hundreds of built-in libraries for data acquisition, data management, analysis, and visualization. In addition, you can choose the LabVIEW Real-Time Module with real-time OS software, so you can create reliable, stand-alone systems with the graphical programming approach. Other options include NI VeriStand for configuration-based real-time testing and simulation; the NI Sound and Vibration Toolkit for analysis of microphone and accelerometer measurements; and NI DIAdem for advanced data management, reporting, and visualization.
