Modern digital technology for safety-current-limited applications or those at 500 VA / 200 mA.
Semi-automatic test system for electric motors in prototype status and with different component characteristics.
Industry: Automotive industry / electric motors
Since the area of application is the prototype workshop of a well-known sports car manufacturer, the test system must be able to test various prototypes of electric motors, some with very different component characteristics. A maximum of flexibility was therefore crucial.
In order to ensure maximum flexibility, the contacting of the very different DUT is done by hand. For particularly heavy DUT, the test system can be equipped with a crane. The design allows for motors up to a weight of 500 kg / 1,200 lbs.
By scanning a DMC code, the appropriate test program for the DUT is automatically loaded. When the start button is pressed, the light curtain is activated and the further test steps run fully automatically.
A light curtain was used to protect the user. This makes it possible to shorten the cycle time, as no safety door has to be closed and opened again. In case of faulty DUT, the user does not have to open a safety door to remove the corresponding DUT.
At the end of the test, a PDF protocol with the test results is generated to simplify further evaluation.
