HOST CCS, The Only Single Computer Test Cell Control System



GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Burke E. Porter Machinery Company (BEPCO) is proud to introduce the HOST Cell Control System (CCS). The HOST CCS redefines how testing is performed in automotive laboratories. It leverages the latest hardware and software technology to provide users with a cost effective state-of-the-art test cell management tool.

At the heart of the system is the single computer test CCS. The foundation for this mission critical computer consists of a fan-less processor, compact flash storage, DiskOnChip®, and a real-time operating system. This enables the system to meet the demanding testing needs while eliminating the three most common hardware failures; processor overheating, hard drive failure, and virus susceptibility. The software has been highly optimized to control the dynamometer, fan, robot (throttle or throttle & brake actuator), and data acquisition. The HOST is compatible with any dynamometer system, even if it is not a Burke Porter machine. Therefore providing a cost effective and flexible solution that also drives down maintenance costs and increases uptime.

The HOST is the state-of-the-art software that enables the user to connect from anywhere and control any test cell controller in their facility. It provides tools to create displays, sequences, drive curves, grade profiles, test monitors, and data acquisition schemes. The displays are created by simply dragging and dropping icons such as bar gauges, radial gauges, thermometers, and graphs onto the screen. This allows users to monitor the data that is vital for their specific tests. Sequences are easily created using the control blocks from the tool box. Users just drag and drop them into and executable flow chart. Once finished, it can be executed by simply pressing the play button. The software also has all of the standard features of any development tool; auto complete typing, a library to check solutions in and out, and detachable tool pallets for customizing the work space.

The Host CCS incorporates state-of-the-art technology and over 20 years of industry experience to deliver the most robust and cost effective testing solution in the industry. The HOST CCS is just another demonstration of Burke E. Porter Machinery's commitment to the success of their customers.
