Data Reduction

Data reduction sine, random, transient

Data reduction systems with or without time history recording to throughput disc are frequently used in critical aerospace testing applications where complete measurements of a high number of channels are required for post-test and possible failure analysis. The m+p VibControl data reduction system configurations are tailored to the specific needs of high-performance measurement applications requiring hundreds or thousands of input channels.

The channel count for a vibration test can be increased using the data reduction function.

Online Data Analysis and Reporting

The online analysis and display functions give a fast overview of the results during the test or when stored data are replayed. Advanced data analysis tools include the m+p Analyzer post-processing software for random, sine, shock and acoustic data, providing seamless integration with Microsoft Office products for comprehensive test reporting. Data formats and data plots of the m+p VibControl data reduction systems and vibration controllers are the same allowing for a common reporting environment.

Data Reduction, Time History Recording and Vibration Control in a Single System

With data reduction, time history recording and vibration control running in parallel in one m+p VibControl system, laboratories can reduce their test costs and operator training significantly. m+p VibControl provides a complete solution for qualification and acceptance tests of large spacecraft structures.
