Ventura Aerospace Expertise with System Integration

Ventura Aerospace has been integrating National Instruments cRIO based systems for many years. These particular units use EtherCAT expansion chassis for dramatically increasing the I/O capability of the host cRIO Controller. Included in these units is I/O protection and a fail-safe multi-channel SSR board designed by Ventura Aerospace. With multiple connections on the front panel these units can accept either industrial or mil-spec connections to the I/O. These units are mounted on sliding shelves for integration ...

Ventura Aerospace Develops Custom Pressure and Vacuum Test Unit for Fuel Tanks

Posted by:

Ventura Aerospace has developed a custom pressure and vacuum tester for fuel tanks using a National Instruments sB-RIO and LabVIEW. This unit will control pneumatic valves to cycle the pressure in a fuel tank while measuring pressure and strain data on the fuel tank walls. All wiring and integration of the components was accomplished by our wire harness shop. This particular unit will be used for certification testing and ...
