We support our service operations by keeping over 500 channels of our STS data acquisition systems available on hand for deployment to field testing/monitoring projects.

We also have hundreds of sensors including strain transducers, LVDTs, string pots, accelerometers, tiltmeters, and ultrasonic displacement sensors ready for immediate mobilization.
Manufacturing

IN-HOUSE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES

BDI quickly learned that specialized data acquisition equipment would be required to provide efficient testing and monitoring services. Therefore, we have been engaged in research and development of electronics, firmware, and software since the late 1980s.

The equipment that we have developed and updated over the years include:

Structural Testing System: Rugged wireless data acquisition system for load testing
Structural Monitoring System: Cost effective monitoring systems ranging from ultra-low power, slow sample speeds to high speed dynamic logging
Contract Strain Gage: Fit-for-purpose sensor designs for various project-specific applications
Sensors: Custom, rugged sensors that can be used in a lab or the harshest environments
SounDAR: Deck Acoustic Response for evaluating large concrete & pavement surfaces
Custom Solutions: With our in-house R&D team, we often develop custom solutions for our projects, as well as our clients’ projects

BDI STAFFS A TEAM OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS THAT ARE CHARGED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW PRODUCTS FOR BDI, AS WELL AS CONTINUALLY IMPROVING OUR EXISTING PRODUCTS.

Our team uses many tools for the design, development, and testing of our data acquisition systems and sensors, including:

AltiumTM design software for designing and laying out electronic circuit boards
LabViewTM development software for programming and testing our testing systems
SolidWorksTM software for mechanical design of housings
MatLab mathematical function solving software used for many subroutines
In-house custom-designed NIST traceable sensor calibrators
High-quality digital oscilloscopes, 5-digit voltmeters, and soldering stations
Programmable environmental chamber for temperature characterization

To keep quality high, BDI systems and sensors are constantly undergoing updating and refinements and are subject to the following guidelines:

NIST traceable calibrations for sensors
CE designations for sensors
In-house QA/QC program
Made in the USA
