Industrially Rugged Ultrasonic Sensing, Signal Analysis and Control System
This technology describes an industrially rugged ultrasonic sensing, signal analysis, and control system. It contains two ultrasonic pulser/receiver channels connected to high speed analog to digital converters that are controlled by a digital signal processor. Two additional high speed analog to digital channels are available as well as two digital to analog channels and digital I/O. The stand alone system will acquire ultrasonic data, process the data, and output an analog or digital signal for use as a sensor output, or for control of a mechanical/electrical system. It can do this at rates exceeding 500 Hz.
The device is originally designed to be installed on a commercial polymer processing system and be used for process monitoring or control. It can be used for a wide variety of applications in polymer processing or other processes. It is useful where high speed data collection and rapid response to the information contained in the signals is required.
Stage of Development
A formal patentability opinion is being considered at this time. This technology is seeking partners for development-manufacturing-sales-etc of the working-final-etc product. It is available for developmental research support/licensing under either exclusive or non-exclusive terms.
