Press Release Summary:
M-TEST v4.0 includes pass/fail testing option, which allows checking of amps, input watts, speed, torque, and output watts against user-defined values. Report saving and recall functions permit users to save motor test reports for future use. Other offerings include ramp, curve, and manual testing options; dynamic PID scaling; PID adjustment routines; motor shaft direction indication; and 3-phase power analyzer data acquisition.
Original Press Release:
Magtrol M-test 4.0 Software Update
Buffalo, NY - Magtrol Inc. has enhanced their M-TEST 4.0 product software with increased product support capabilities, a pass/fail testing option, and a report saving and recall function. M-TEST is now equipped to complement a wider range of Magtrol products including Dynamometer Controllers (DSP6000/6001, 5240 and 4629B); Hysteresis, Eddy-Current and Powder Brake Dynamometers; Power Analyzers (5100, 5300, 6510, 651 Oe, 6530 and 6550) and In-Line Torque Transducers. With the new pass/fail testing option, the software allows the checking of amps, input watts, speed, torque and output watts against user-defined values. The report saving and recall function permits the user to save motor test reports for future use. Other features include ramp, curve and manual testing options; dynamic PID scaling; PID adjustment routines; motor shaft direction indication; easy test setup, saving and loading; and three-phase power analyzer data acquisition with the ability to acquire sum or individual phase data.
Magtrol's M-TEST 4.0 Software is a state-of-the-art motor testing program for Windows®-based data acquisition. Used in conjunction with Magtrol's Motor Testing Equipment, M-TEST provides testing and data options to help determine the performance and characteristics of a motor under test. The data generated by the program can then be stored, displayed and printed in tabular or graphic formats, and easily imported into a spreadsheet.
Magtrol's M-TEST 4.0 is ideal for simulating loads, cycling the unit under test and motor ramping. Tests can be programmed to run on their own and saved for future use, allowing for valuable time savings in production testing and incoming/outgoing inspection. And because it is easy to gather data and duplicate tests, M-TEST is ideal for use in engineering labs.
Also available is MT-TEST 4.0, a variation of M-TEST that allows the user to perform temperature measurement testing. MT-TEST provides complete dynamometer control, allowing for temperature measurement while performing load simulation for duty cycle and life testing. The software is ideal for performing heat rise curves on different areas of a motor and is now compatible with National Instruments(TM) FieldPoint Modular Distributed I/O System. All other features are identical to those of M-TEST.
