MINICOMPUTER AUTOMATES LUBE-OIL TESTING

Through use of a minicomputer data-acquisition and test- monitoring system, Southwest Research Institute engine laboratory, which is engaged in testing lubricating oils and other automotive products, can gather ten times as much data, with greater accuracy than is possible manually. As many as 50 engines can be operated simultaneously to perform any of the eight different programmed qualification tests required by US Army specifications. The automated laboratory is operated by a Hewlett-Packed 2100A real-time minicomputer system with 24K memory and various signal-conditioning and scanning electronics for taking readings. As well as input/output peripherals.
