Acellent Technologies, Inc.has developed the G-Patch Multimodal Condition Monitoring System (MMS) which is designed to provide multiple sensing parameters (strains, temperature, and also detection of local damage) simultaneously from a local hot spot area.
The SMART® Layer is at the heart of our MMS monitoring system which allows for precise mounting & pre-wiring of strain gauges and temperature sensors, as well as PZT sensors for “active” damage detection and “passive” dynamic event detection.
Acellent supports the MMS system’s real-time data collection requirement with our MMS-Scanner hardware. The MMS software provides a diagnostic evaluation of the integrity of a structure. As a response to the strain and dynamic event monitoring evaluation the MMS system can launch automated damage detection for rapid evaluation of potentially harmful dynamic events.
