Abstract

The SACS (Sensor Acquisition and Control System) is a hardware and software package developed as a system to be used in conjunction with an aluminum melt detection sensor signal acquisition previously developed by a team of WPI students. This project builds on a preexisting C code firmware, and is used by a graphical user interface developed using Visual Basic.NET. Through this project, the groundwork has been laid for further thermal and electrical conductivity evaluations of molten aluminum. The SACS is a prototype, in line, non-destructive configuration, that allows process control for aluminum sand casting.
