FREEDOM TO INVENT INCLUDED
Blades are like
no two are alike...
Except they’re large, metallic, and can fail catastrophically.
Study each blade individually.
Tutorials, datasets, and code using Python.
“Mechanical engineers should stay away from creating FPGA-based applications that basically run at lightspeed.”
“Hold my beer.”
WHAT WE DO
WE CREATE SOLUTIONS FOR TURBOMACHINERY BLADE VIBRATION MONITORING.
MOST NOTABLY, WE OFFER THE BLADESIGHT KRAKEN, A DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM THAT’LL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF.
Bladesight Learning Centre:
A website providing free access to tutorials and code for performing advanced turbomachinery monitoring.
Datasets released under the Creative Commons 4 license that newcomers can use to write and test their own algorithms.
Bladesight Kraken X4
A data acquisition system for Blade Tip Timing (BTT).
A source-available language for FPGA programming of the Bladesight Kraken.
Bladesight Python package
An open-source Python package that exposes the code developed in the learning centre.
Data acquisition system for Blade Tip Timing (BTT)
KRAKEN X4 FEATURES
Develop your own FPGA-based applications
Don’t settle for boring vibration monitoring solutions. Use the Kraken and Bladesight HDL to explore FPGA technology. Make your own application for vibration monitoring, nuclear fusion, or surviving the zombie apocalypse (just in case).
Amazing signal conditioning
Scale any signal from 50V to 50 mV to full range.
No signal will ever be too small, big, or fast to measure.
4 X 125 MHz at 14-bit resolution.
We serve those who:
Want to become Python Ninjas
Like to know what’s going on under the hood of your results
Find the idea of building blistering fast FPGA-based applications intriguing
