Examples of systems developed by AOIP

Non-contact measurement of disk brake performance features

Requirements: Performance (braking efficiency, brake life time...) depends on:

  • Rotation Thickness Variation (RTV)): Not even and steady disk brake thickness
  • Run out: Axis shift during rotation
  • Wobbling: Unveven rotation or movement

Solution:

  • Two or more capacitive sensors
  • Two or more conditioning units
  • Multi-channel data acquisition unit
  • Real-time processing and easy-to-customize data management software

Application fields:

  • Automotive: disk brake manufacturers
  • Manufacturers of test bench: ageing test bench, automate non-contact distortion measurement

Humidity control inside bulk

Requirements:

  • High accurate and sensitive humidity measurement inside bulk
  • System adapted to field environment
  • Measurement allowed up to water saturation

Solution:

  • Two or more capacitive sensors
  • Two or more conditioning units
  • Multi-channel data acquisition unit
  • Real-time processing and easy-to-customize data management software

Some solutions already exist on the market to measure humidity, although with some drawbacks:

Infra-red technology: Surface test only
Impedance technology:Little accurate solution due to simple phase test and only suitable for laboratory measurements

Application fields:

  • Food processing: Producers of dried food, powders...
  • Agriculture: Optimisation of irrigation, seed depth...
  • Plastic industry: Control of solids content of plastic granules...
  • Pharmacy: Research on humidity level optimisation, control of storage conditions, compliance to drug safety standards...
  • Material: Paper, wood, cement, sand, phosphate...

Optimisation of compressor and turbine efficiency

Requirements:

  • High frequency acquisition (up to 300 kHz) of distance values
  • Very accurate data acquisition system
  • Dedicated software 

Solution:

  • Two or more capacitive sensors
  • Two or more conditioning units
  • Multi-channel data acquisition unit
  • Real-time processing and easy-to-customize data management software 

Application fields:

  • Energy / Aircraft: Manufacturers of turbines, blades, compressors...
  • Aircraft: Test of turbine design, blade tip clearance, blade tip timing, control of blade safety...
