We designed proDAS specifically for the gas turbine engine test environment in repair and overhaul, production or development testing. Recognized as the most capable system on the market today, proDAS is MDS’s latest generation of real-time data acquisition software. The system of choice for engine development programs around the world, proDAS provides unparalleled integration and automation for engine testing requirements.
proDAS is an advanced data acquisition and control system which meets the requirements of modern gas turbine overhaul, production, and research and development engine test facilities.
An efficient test facility data acquisition system requires complete integration with the Facility Controls, Engine Controls, Engine Throttle, and Dynamic Data System. MDS’s data acquisition systems have supported numerous engine development and production programs with over 40 systems delivered in the last decade.
Easily programmable test procedures allow the user to create straightforward testing schemes for maximum testing efficiency. Test procedures are simple to follow, repeatable, and complete. The result: an accurate automatically produced test report.
