NDE-DAQ Platform

The NDE-DAQ is a versatile and expandable Nondestructive (NDE) Data Acquisition (DAQ) Platform for Quality Assurance/Quality Control and infrastructure condition assessment. Add on NDT Systems as you need them.

The NDE-DAQ is a Data Acquisition Platform designed to connect to any laptop or tablet running Olson’s Windows-based software. This 4-channel multiple-system platform is a compact, lightweight, but robust battery powered system offering mobility and simplicity for use in the field by one person. Collected data can be fully evaluated at the job site or saved for later processing in the office.

The NDE-DAQ accommodates several add-on NDT test/software system options, making it a valuable tool for nondestructive testing and evaluation of civil structures at an attractive price. This platform, paired with the user's Windows Device, offers complete data acquisition and processing capability for six different add-on test methods. There is no need to return the equipment when adding systems.

Materials Tested:
  • Concrete
  • Asphalt
  • Masonry
  • Wood
  • Soil
  • Rock
Test On:
  • Foundations Depth & Integrity Systems
