Industrial Rugged Data Acquisition Applications

There are many data acquisition and control applications that require rugged data acquisition hardware for industrial solutions. These include: vehicle monitoring, engine testing, rocket launch pads, oil & gas, military, dynamometers, factory test, avionics, aircraft, subsea, full flight simulators etc.

UEI have chassis families that are rugged for vibration and shock, and a MIL family that is also designed to meet MIL-STD-461, MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-704, MIL-STD-1275 and are sealed to IP66. Conformal coating on boards is also available.

Range of rugged I/O racks, Cubes, Racktangles, Flatracks

Rugged Data Acquisition for Vibration and Shock

The Cube family with 1000Base-T ethernet, RACKtangle and Flatracks are all rated to withstand 3g (rms) 10-500Hz broad band random and sinusoidal vibration. The older 10/100Base-T ethernet Cube and MIL family can withstand 5g (rms).

The Cube, RACKtangleFlatracks and MIL family are rated to withstand 100g, 3ms half sine shock, and 30 g 11ms half sine shock.

The Cube, RACKtangleFlatracks and MIL are rated to function upto 70,000 feet altitude, with a special Cube for upto 120,000 feet.

Don’t just take it from us. Here’s what some of UEI’s customers have to say!

“From our perspective the UEI solution provides easier expansion, better system architecture, better ruggedization, and it will be easier for us to write clean, efficient programs for it.”

 — J.McCabe | Aerospace Engineer at Orbital Technologies

“UEI understands our business and needs and get us the right equipment immediately. They have been instrumental in helping us get 4 cockpit simulators together for the US Army. UEI equipment works perfectly and I have never sent any UEI product back for repair. Their customer service is first class.”

— GW Estep | President at ZedaSoft, Inc.

“The flexibility of the UEI cube was fantastic for us. All the capabilities we needed seamlessly integrated into the Cube. We had all VI’s right of the box. The level of support we have received over the years has been fantastic.”

— Kevin Joy | Technical Director at NURTEC UConn

“UEI helped to improve our front-end monitoring and control systems. UEI’s RACKtangle helped CHESS to distribute control to various systems. We have eliminated miles of cables.”

— Phil Sorenson | Software Developer at CHESS Lab Cornell

“It would be difficult to express how awesome I think your catalog and product line is.  Is it FLEXIBLE or POWERFUL? How about both.  WOW!”
