Motor vehicle suspension testing

under continous load

Endurance testing involves simulating various load profiles applied to the individual suspension springs.

Sensor instrumentation for every application

Meaningful analysis of your sensor signals.

WITHOUT ANALYSIS, SENSOR SIGNALS REMAIN DATA STREAMS WITHOUT VALUE
Without the correct signal amplification, post-processing, visualization, analysis and evaluation in the context of yourrequirements, sensor signals simply remain useless streams of data. The success of your process monitoring system ultimately depends on these signal processing steps.

Depending on the application and degree of automation, you are faced with issues of networking, speed, accuracy, interfacing, integration and economic viability. High performance and optimum utilization of your processes are essential if they are to meet future requirements reliably and flexibly.

THE CORRECT INTERFACE FOR YOUR APPLICATION
burster offers you the full spectrum of sensor signal acquisition and analysis tools, from simple digital indicator to high-end process controller. We use our decades of experience to give you precisely the advice you need.

Take advantage of our applications advice at the start of a project, or our optimization suggestions for on-going processes. If sensor and relevant electronics are already set in place, we can still calibrate the full measurement chain by aligning the sensor with the electronics. DAkkS and factory calibration certificate available on request.

Using high-quality sensors and appropriate instrumentation from burster your business benefits from quality, flexibility and efficiency and the confidence to operate in fast-changing markets. The burster comprehensive package gives you peace of mind, because you can rely on precise, rapid measurement-data acquisition.

RELIABILITY AT YOUR FINGERTIPS – burster PLUG & PLAY
Smart interaction is the key to success in a world where sharing information is ever more important. Interconnecting people, machinery and products in fully or semi-automated production processes is a challenging and demanding reality. Engineers must design processes to be easy to monitor, quantify, reproduce and analyze while aiming for ever greater reliability.

Sensor-specific data is stored in the sensor connector using innovative burster TEDS technology. The analysis instrument reads this sensor data and uses it for the automatic configuration of the evaluation electronics. This not only protects against setting incorrect parameters but makes it easier to change sensors while saving time and money spent on configuration.

Instrumentation amplifiers and sensor interfaces

burster amplifier products

burster amplifier products are used wherever sensor signals from strain-gauge, potentiometric or DC/DC sensors need to be converted into standard voltage or current signals and supplied to a PLC or other host systems for further analysis. These products will be indispensable in future production environments where, in addition to their traditional role of amplifying and transferring sensor signals, they will need to perform this task in the context of Industry 4.0 using flexible fieldbus connections via modern interfaces such as PROFINET. burster also offers a high-performance Plug&Measure solution for PC-based measurement tasks.

Digital indicators and calibrators

Digital indicators, Sensormaster and TRANS CAL

Digital indicators receive the measurement signals from their load cells and convert them for presentingon a display. Depending on their range of functions, these instruments already help you to analyse your measurement signals and can transfer the evaluated measurement data to the higher-level control environment. Limit-setting and visual alarms on the display are convenient features for handling sensor signals. Portable indicators and calibrators provide a straightforward means for you to perform your own device testing and calibration directly in your production environment without lengthy production downtimes.

Process Monitoring Controller

DIGIFORCE® and ForceMaster

Process controllers are used when detailed process analysis for continuous optimization and zero-fault monitoring of the produced parts is needed in addition to sensor signal amplification, visualization and recording. The powerful burster controllers are designed for the demands of an exacting production system usually involving partial or full automation. A vast range of applications can be analysed and monitored thanks to high-speed and synchronous measurement data acquisition and a wealth of measurement and evaluation techniques. These tools provide the user with detailed process information. The smart process monitoring systems visualize, analyse and evaluate quality-relevant process parameters, and can transmit the results via the latest communications interfaces. Ethernet based fieldbus systems such as PROFINET transfer process results and status messages to higher-level controllers in real time. Whatever the movement or joining system - pneumatic, hydraulic or servo-electric - burster process controllers have the versatility to integrate with all forms of motion technology.

DIGIFORCE® monitors processes in which precisely defined functional relationships need to be demonstrated between two or more measured quantities of the process.
