Vibration tests must be safe and reliable and this is especially true for high value specimens in critical aerospace testing applications. Here, m+p Coda offers maximum safety: The monitoring system captures and records data such as acceleration, temperature and strain continuously during vibration tests - irrespective of the vibration control system in use. Each channel can be configured separately for total flexibility.
The m+p Coda vibration monitoring system ensures that alarm events triggered by defective sensors or misconfiguration are avoided or can be used to switch off the shaker immediately. It can also monitor continuously before, during and after a test with the vibration control system on-line or off-line.
m+p Coda provides all relevant signals from the unit under test and the shaker in a very compact format. The active channels are clearly displayed in a separate window, out-of-limit data can be seen at a glance. Alarm events are entered into a log file and can be reviewed at any time.
To measure accelerations, temperatures and strains, m+p Coda supports the powerful m+p VibRunner acquisition hardware. m+p VibRunner is modular by design: The basic unit is a 19“ mainframe that houses up to three front-mounted functional modules. It can be used as a desktop instrument or equipped with mounting brackets for 19” rack mounting. When several m+p VibRunner frontends are operated in parallel, data acquisition over all devices and channels will be exactly synchronized by means of a daisy chain connection.
