Triaxial Accelerometer in HIC Impact Tester
To create a perfect playing field, it needs to have the right bounce, damp, level, profile and many more factors. A HIC Impact Tester with a triaxial accelerometer determines the HIC and G performance (acceleration due to gravity) by dropping the HIC head from a selected height.
Customised measurement solutions for the Kiel-Holtenau lock
For the new design of the future drives of the Great Lock Kiel-Holtenau, the Wasserstraßen-Neubauamt Nord-Ostsee-Kanal required real measurement data of the lock gates during on-going operation. Measurement specialist Althen developed customised measurement solutions for this project.
Draw-wire sensor for measuring steering angle
The Solar Boat Team of TU Delft implemented a FD60 draw-wire sensor (string pot) into a hydrogen powered boat that uses hydrofoils to 'fly'. The boat has wings underneath the boat. To position the wings the boat uses a draw-wire sensor connected to a steering plate that measures the steering angle.
