Test & Measurement

Sensors and Signal Conditioning

Sensors are key building blocks of any measurement and instrumentation system. They provide a means to measure physical quantities such as temperature, pressure, strain, displacement, and velocity. Understanding signal conditioning techniques is equally important when designing and implementing state-of-the-art measurement systems. Quanser’s line of measurement and instrumentation products are suited to teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of common sensors and signal conditioning by allowing students to measure real-world physical quantities.

Fluid & Pressure Measurement

The Coupled Tank is a bench-scale plant suited to introduce measurement and calibration of fluid flow, liquid level, and pressure

Mechanical Motion Measurements

The modular rotary motion platform is ideal for measurement and calibration of strain, angular displacement, angular velocity, vibration, and actuation.

Introduction to Sensors

Our engineering trainer boards incorporate a comprehensive range of sensors and switches, ideally suited for teaching introductory electro-mechanical measurement, sensor behavior, and calibration techniques.

Data Acquisition 

Since computers operate in the digital domain, analog signals must be converted into their digital equivalent before they are manipulated by a computer. Likewise, a digital signal from a PC must be converted to an analog signal before it can control a process. Quanser’s ground-breaking USB DAQs offer an extensive range of A/D and D/A hardware features and software support which provide a precise, reliable way to acquire and process large amounts of data in real-time. In the classroom, Quanser DAQs can be used to teach concepts such as sampling rate and signal aliasing.
