Project Portfolio Spotlight: The Backlash Calculator

The backlash calculator was built on the National Instruments cRIO platform and is used to measure the differential gear backlash on an axle in an end-of-the-line environment. It utilizes a high-speed encoder and a digital input module to measure the speed and angle when the gears are rotated. The backlash calculator not only measures the backlash consistently, but also helps the engineers to troubleshoot the mechanical problems of the main machine via the onboard data files.
