We use the latest National Instruments hardware and LabVIEW software.

Detailed Description

Currently, all new AEROLAB Transonic, Supersonic and Complete EWT Systems are supplied with a sophisticated Data Acquisition and Control System. With years of combined experience, AEROLAB’s engineering team can also design, assemble and calibrate a custom system to meet your exact requirements.

Each system is supplied with a Dell desktop computer (standard), keyboard, mouse and flat screen monitor. Sensor information and control instructions are routed to the computer through required National Instruments hardware. LabVIEW software is used to create a unique executable program to meet your exact functional and display needs.

AEROLAB uses only the most-modern, cutting-edge hardware and assembly techniques to offer high resolution, high accuracy and repeatability. As an example of AEROLAB’s development advances, all analog sensor output signals are immediately converted to digital signals at the source! This is a major breakthrough with regard to noise reduction.
