MONITORING THE PROCESSING TEMPERATURE OF THE POLYMERIC MATRIX COMPOSITE MATERIALS This paper presents a monitoring methodology of the processing temperature for the polymeric composite materials. An experimental stand was realized consisting of a computer with an acquisition card and the LabVIEW software that allows the real time monitoring of the composite materials temperature during the processing through the aid of a new heat sensor LM 335Z. This digital sensor had proved to be more efficient than the classical thermo-couplings. Using the LabVIEW software, a virtual instrument called “Virtual Thermometer” was created. This virtual instrument has the same functions as a real instrument, but with a much more complexity as well as the possibility of real time measuring, save, analysis and presentation of the collected data.
