Data acquisition card with real time calculation
The isolated Genesis 1 kV data acquisition card by HBM can perform real time calculations on the fly and provides values per half cycle at sampling rates of up to 2 million samples/second.
HBM Inc. has added real time data calculation capabilities to its Genesis 1kV card. The isolated 1 kV data acquisition card lets the data recorders perform real time calculations on the fly, while allowing users to view results immediately.
The 1 kV card also provides values per half cycle at sampling rates of up to 2 million samples/second at voltages up to + 1000 V. Users can therefore see dynamic data such as currents and voltages produced when an electric motor is accelerated, for example. This capability helps engineers more easily meet design goals for optimization and efficiency. It is also useful in safety tests for the aviation industry as well as in the monitoring of generators and inverters, all applications that require millions of data points to be acquired, stored and visualized.
The system's sampling rate can be automatically switched following a trigger event in the real time calculation channels. Maximum sampling rates are therefore then only used for particularly critical measurement events. This results in smaller data files, so that testing becomes significantly more efficient.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
