Portable High Channel Count Data Acquisition System 

Like similar departments, the Florida Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining a comprehensive transportation system that includes 6,377 bridges.  While the FDOT Structural Research Center has relied on its legacy test system for fifteen years, inherent limitations of the system,  prompted the search for a more efficient and effective bridge test system.

Using Sensors Plug&Play (TEDS) data acquisition hardware and National Instruments LabVIEW software, Intech developed a test and measurement application that improves measurement accuracy, enables automated hardware configuration, eliminates wiring errors and provides a more intuitive user interface.  With this new system, researchers at the FDOT Structural Research Center can more accurately and effectively perform load testing, load rating and condition monitoring tests, ensuring that bridges in Florida can safely support its more than 17 million residents and countless visitors.
