TSM Sensors

An easy-to-use software allows TSM Sensors to automate wire position transducer test and calibration


The challanges

TSM Sensors S.r.l., leader in designing wire position transducers, needs to automate some fundamentals procedures for the company: 

  • Wire position transducer test;
  • Sensor calibration;
  • Generation of the sensors certificates based on communication between the computer and the machinery used.

TSM needs also a tool that allows engineers to evaluate functionality and sensor performance.
The software has to had a user-friendly and intuitive interface, which reduces the time required to perform the sensor calibration and maximizes operator productivity.


The solution

To meet the demand of TSM Sensors Srl, T4SM carried out detailed research of the interface and the working methods adopted by the customer. It led to the creation of innovative software, developed with LabVIEW, which allows TSM to automate the necessary procedures, as the simplified interface allows making the sensor calibration from the first use.
The software includes functionalities addressed to technicians and researches that allows them to evaluate the performance of prototypes.
The implemented solution allows analysis of the data obtained from an IXXAT CAN adapter that connects the computer to the linear axis and another IXXAT CAN adapter that connects the sensors to the computer.
The software automatically generates and stores the calibration certificates in PDF format on the corporate server.

Benefits and results

The implemented solution is easy to use thanks to its intuitive and clear interface. It provides essential information for the operator who can easily use it and allows the traceability of all performed tests.
The automation of test procedures and sensor calibration and the automatic generation of certificates in PDF format allows a drastic reduction of working times.

The collaboration with T4SM, thanks to the high competence of its staff, has enabled TSM to have an easy-to-use software for the calibration of its wire position transducers thus optimizing production time and ensuring the reporting required for a proper quality management.
