Metrology

tms develops special measuring electronics for geopenetration and fast underwater movement (hydrokinetics), which withstand the mechanical stresses which occur and therefore ensure maximum availability for acquisition of the measured data. Due to the autonomy of our systems for measurement data acquisition, which often allows integration of the sensors in shielding housings, high data quality is also ensured.

Basic technical specifications of our measuring systems for pressure and acceleration measurements:

  • Acceleration resistance > 20,000 g
  • 12-/14-bit AD converter
  • up to 2 MHz measuring clock pulse
  • IP68 tight, EMC immune
  • (user)programmable

Recently we successfully tested a new generation of our programmable inertial measurement units (IMU) for true 6 degrees-of-freedom measurements in a series of trials focusing on underwater missile technology.

All activities within the scope of these system developments are mastered by tms: Hardware development and layout (multi-layer), firmware development for specific hardware, for 8 to 32 bit CPUs, interfacing with modern PC ports (RS-232, USB), development of analysis software, e.g. for MS Windows and Linux operating systems.

We also provide our measuring systems within the scope of a service, whereby we will be pleased to satisfy your specific requirements. Optionally, we can provide small series developments and production services.
