Innovation in Testing Methods for Achieving Greater Reliability and Performance Drives Demand
Importance of Test and Measurement
•Tests/test and measurement, primarily performed for analysis, creation, validation, and verification, is an important part of the design and development process for electronic and mechanical systems and products. The goal is to make sure that such electronic and mechanical systems meet various standards in all types of working conditions including real-time environments.
•The broad process of test and measurement (done to ensure performance, reliability, safety, quality, comfort, and appearance) allows manufacturers to resolve potential problems of a product model before it goes into production and out into the hands of customers.
•As an example, a car must be tested to meet technical and safety specifications by running it through a series of tests. If it does not perform as expected it may need to be re-engineered or re-worked or re-designed as it is much more cost-efficient to eliminate a problem before high-volume mass production than to discover problems and trying to fix them afterward.
Role of Sensors for Test and Measurement
•Sensors are the 1st point of contact in any measurement chain as they are on the forefront and provide the raw data needed.
•Various operating conditions concerning acceleration, pressure, temperature, magnetic field, frequency range, and other parameters involved while performing test and measurement tasks automatically necessitate the need for a variety of sensors.
•Sensors supply the critical operating information to achieve the optimal production efficiency and product quality.
•Superior sensors provide more accurate and reliable information about the product or machine under test than lower quality sensors. The latter may provide misleading data, which can cause a critical condition to be overlooked. This is especially important in industries such as aerospace and defense (A&D) and automotive and transportation (A&T) as sensors contribute to reducing the death toll.
Critical Ingredients in Test and Measurement
•While sensors are definitely a core part of test and measurement, there are other components required to ensure they function properly in the system as a whole. These would be “test and measurement” products themselves. Therefore, engineers need test and measurement tools such as oscilloscopes, signal conditioning equipment, and also other accessories to check the correct operation of the sensors.
•In essence, all of the components, including sensors, signal conditioners, test instruments, and also software are required to ensure seamless interaction between the test and measurement processes.
Focus on quality across industries is increasing. Depending upon the accuracy of the data provided by sensors, demand for sensors in test and measurement is expected to continue.
Aerospace, defense, and automotive will continue to be important end markets for sensors in test and measurement.
Amongst all energy sectors, there is more emphasis on renewable energy. Wind energy in particular offers potential for sensors due to the need to ensure the optimum performance of the operational structures designed.
Increasing need for environmental monitoring is expected to drive demand for acoustic sensing.
Regardless of the end market being served, easy-to-use sensor solutions that provide state-of-the-art measurement and monitoring is a key requirement in the T&M community.
