V22 Mast Torque Sensing System (MTSS) Calibration/Validation/Burn-In Racks Re-design.

The V22 Osprey Mast Torque Sensing System (MTSS) consists of 12 individual Electronic Module Assemblies (EMA). During the test the ASIC (situated on the EMA) receives varying voltages from the bridge representing temperature and torque, and by means of a look-up table contained in the EEPROM, performs interpolations, and outputs either an error or a temperature corrected torque signal in the form of a frequency modulation (FM).

Obsolescence of some DAQ cards/instruments/components in the existing ATE rack prompted a complete re-design of the system (software and hardware).

Summary of my involvement in the project:

  • System analysis and specification of new instruments, DAQ cards and PC.
  • Driver development for the new instruments and DAQ cards.
  • Integration of the new drivers into the existing LabVIEW code (LV6.1)
  • Complete re-write of the ATE code, in LabVIEW 2009.
  • Code unification of the Burn-In and Calibration/Validation ATE racks.
  • Software development to aid the debugging of the custom switching system.
  • Documentation of the software.

ATE test rack includes the following instrumentation:

The new ATE rack is controlled with a rack mounted industrial PC running under XP and with the following boards fitted; NI-PCI-6503 DIO 24 , NI-PCI-6703 DAC. Rack instruments consist of a Agilent 34972A LXI Data Acquisition and Switching System, fitted with three 34901A 20ch Multiplexer modules, a T&T TG2000 signal generator, custom load cell interface, custom switching system (RS232 controlled), two Honeywell 3000 temperature controllers and one Aardvark I2C adapter (USB).

Dec 1999 to Apr 2000 : ROTORK CONTROLS

LabVIEW Developer - Consultant

I have been involved in a project to replace an existing product ATE system, which was written in C++, with National Instruments LabVIEW software and NI hardware. Each actuator before shipping to the customer needs to be calibrated, tested and certified. I have developed a complete ATE system that does all the required calibrations, conducts the QA tests, generates a test certificate and updates the company databases. The actuators are calibrated and tested on individual test benches. All test bench instrumentation and controllers are controlled by LabVIEW software. Once on the test bench LabVIEW controls the actuator through an infrared (IrDA protocol) link and monitors/calibrates its responses. These calibration results are loaded to the EEPROM of the actuator. After a final test a formal test certificate is printed and the relevant company databases are updated by using ActiveX. The main test system includes utilities for archived data retrieval and test bench instrumentation calibration/configuration. The new LabVIEW ATE system has reduced the average test time of an actuator from 22 minutes to 12 minutes.

Summary of my involvement in the project:

  • System analysis and I/O signal specification.
  • New test procedure specification.
  • New hardware specification.
  • GUI Design.
  • Code development using LabVIEW.
  • Driver development I have developed LabVIEW divers for the existing AD RTI815 and RTI817 cards,
