Engineering development of vehicle
components tests the design skills of the best Engineers.
Any omissions or oversights along the development path...
from original requirements specification to material selection
to application assessment to manufacturability can (and
will!) result in a high incidence of field failures.
In-lab testing will ferret out
many design flaws or unsuspected shortcomings, however
the real test of a products performance, longevity and
reliability comes from real-world over the road testing.
With the infinite number of variables and operational
conditions that a vehicle component will see within its
lifetime, extensive road testing is nearly always required
prior to product production.
A major manufacturer of
exhaust system components required temperature, back-pressure
and engine performance / load data for a new system that
they had developed. A rugged and flexible means of data
collection was required that could be deployed on multiple
vehicles throughout the continental USA to collect "real-world"
The Logic Beach HyperLogger
system was utilized for data collection on a fleet of
vehicles in varying climatic regions of the continental
US. Wired to pressure transducers and thermocouple probes
as well as varying other sensors for parametric data collection,
the loggers silently recorded operational data whenever
the vehicle power was on... and the exhaust gas temperature
exceeded 180F. Via the removable memory card feature,
data was periodically collected by non-technical staff
at the fleet maintenance offices (by simply swapping the
memory cards) and shipped to the manufacturer's Engineering
Logic Beach loggers
are regularly deployed in many mobile and vehicle test
applicatons. Due to their integral signal conditioning,
optional isolated inputs, removable memory cards and powerful
yet simple configuration software... HyperWare... loggers
find themselves mounted to earth moving vehicles, airplanes,
boats, cars, trucks and even riding tractors.
