Test Stand System
24 October 2012
Kistler has launched a modular test stand system designed for testing electric motors and gearing.
The stands can incorporate a wide range of torque and speed sensors with manual or computer control, and can be equipped with an integrated power analyser with up to 12 voltage and 12 current measurement channels to provide separate efficiency specification for the motor and converter.
The load on the motor under test is provided by an active brake working in four quadrants.
Sensors to measure torque from 0.01 to 25,000Nm, power from 2W to 500kW and speed up to 120,000rpm may be combined with a wide range of mechanical components, power analyser for data logging, signal conditioning and data interface.
