Motor Endurance Test

Posted in LabVIEW Programming, LabVIEW Programming for Real-Time and FPGA, Motion Control Engineering and Servo Systems, Product Development, Test and Measurement, Test and Measurement Automation

DMC programmed a multi-station motor endurance test system. The system utilized National Instruments hardware and software to control motors, monitor performance, and collect data throughout 500 hour endurance tests. Magtrol dynamometers apply a load to each motor and a PID control loop maintains the appropriate motor current, as specified by the test sequence. An autotuning algorithm allows the user to easily configure the system for any size motor and brake.
