The system is designed for measuring the pressure progress in the barrel of a firearm and for simultaneously detecting the firing flash. The system is designed to allow pressure measurement at 2 channels, too.
The system consists of Kistler pressure transducers, Kistler amplifiers, a Keithley 3110 measuring card inserted in a portable industrial computer, and a control program.

The program is prepared in the TestPoint development environment to respect specific customer requirements. In addition to measuring and storing data, the program also allows for

  • calculate characteristic time values from the course
  • display several waveforms for visual comparison
  • calculate maximum pressures
  • assist in finding the moment of leaving the barrel
  • generate a protocol.
