Cantilever Beam Lab
Cantilever Beam Lab

Consisting of a vibrating cantilever beam, an adjustable damper, and an accelerometer, the Validyne Cantilever Beam Lab allows for the measurement of natural frequencies and the effect of damping on the decaying rate of vibrations. When connected to the Universal Data Acquisition System(UDAS), this solution enables students to make measurements, graphs, and calculations to find the amount of critical damping in the system.

Damping Lab
Damping Lab

Validyne’s unique Damping Lab give students a “hands on” way to experience and learn the measurement of time response as a function of static loading. When connected to the Universal Data Acquisition System(UDAS), the Damping Lab allows students to make measurements, graphs, and calculations to find the amount of critical damping in the system. The Validyne Damping Lab consists of a cantilever beam, an adjustable damper, and an accelerometer.

First Order Response Lab
First Order Response Lab

This easy to use lab contains everything needed to demonstrate the dynamic first-order response of a thermal system to a step change. Our First Order Response Lab includes a temperature sensor, thermos, and fixtures that allow students to record, then graph the response to a sudden change in temperature. The Universal Data Acquisition System(UDAS), with real-time graphing, provides all the required sensor power and linearization plus records the readings directly in Vdc, degrees C or F.

What makes Validyne and University Research labs a perfect fit?
Range Changeable Pressure Sensors and Easy to Use Data Acquisition Solutions

Validyne pressure transducers and signal conditioning have long been used in University laboratories for graduate research and undergraduate instruction. The ability to change the full scale pressure range of a Validyne transducer makes it the most flexible choice for laboratories where pressure measurements are constantly changing to meet new requirements. Validyne programmable signal conditioning provides the same level of flexibility and accepts any combination of sensor inputs including strain gages, Validyne pressure transducers, thermocouples, RTDs, LVDTs, resistances and DC volts – in any mix or combination. Combined with Easy Sense software and a USB interface, Validyne signal conditioning can be quickly programmed to meet your changing needs.
