Tire and Wheel Testing Systems can be custom designed and manufactured for practically any application. ATi designed and built the custom system, shown to the left, for a major defense contractor. The inductively powered system is used to wirelessly measure tire pressure and temperature during testing. The system also incorporates a valve for incremental pressure adjustment or immediate deflation in an emergency.
Transmitters are available for any sensor input, including strain gages, thermocouples, RTDs, voltage, amperage and more. Custom systems with assorted input types and channel counts can be manufactured to meet customer requirements. Onboard sensor excitation and signal conditioning are integrated within the transmitters. In addition to the display, the stationary receiver provides real time analog outputs that can be recorded for further analyzing. Analog outputs can be ±2 VDC, ±5 VDC, ±10 VDC, 4-20 mA or other tailored specifically to requirements.
Systems are available in battery powered, rechargeable battery pack powered or inductively powered versions, to meet system requirements. Systems are also available for measuring propeller or rotor blade stresses, shaft torque and any number of other parameters.
