MT 190.01 Assembly data acquisition for materials tester



  • Educational project with high practical affinity for training in metalworking and electrical trades
  • Interdisciplinary mechanical and electrical engineering assembly kit covering multiple learning fields
  • Fully functional data acquisition for a materials tester with USB port and software


Technical Description

The fully assembled MT 190.01 presents a real, fully functional data acquisition system for the measurement of pressure (forces) on, and changes in length of, a test specimen. The acquired data is processed by evaluation software on a PC. The data acquisition system significantly enhances the possibilities offered by the MT 190 assembly project. The two systems together form a state-of-the-art materials tester with data acquisition, suitable for a wide range of experiments.

Using MT 190.01, students can develop skills in the completion of a complex project. In the course of the project they independently develop an appreciation for the fundamentals and correlations involved, then contribute to the overall outcome using their teamworking skills. The skills acquired are the planning, execution and checking of assembly, commissioning, and maintenance operations. 

MT 190.01 is supplied in kit form. The kit contains all the components and materials required to construct a professional data acquisition system.

The assembly process includes the basic mechanical construction and wiring as per the circuit diagram. All the necessary tools and aids, as well as comprehensive instructional material, are included.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

- fundamentals of data acquisition familiarisation with sensors, electronics for recording and outputting data, interfacing, software
- reading and understanding technical documentation
- planning and execution of assembly operations and sequences
- commissioning and checking a data acquisition system following assembly
- system integration: linking of materials tester and data acquisition
In conjunction with MT 190
- recording of force-elongation diagrams and 
  stress-strain diagrams
- processing, display and storage of data
- output of diagrams to printer
