The endurance test stand for drive shafts measures and controls the widest variety of parameters. Four drive shafts are simultaneously tested in a closed loop with multi-block programs. All safety-related queries are carried out during the test and stop the test stand automatically after a fault is detected.

NovoPS Test Stand Software

The NovoPS test stand software is a Windows-based solution that is programmed in-house and optimised for the respective test task. As the interface to the user, the uncomplicated user interface provides intuitive access to all functions of the test stand. Moreover, both the connection of the test stand to the customer's conveyor systems as well as its integration into the existing network environment is taken into account. This enables the data acquired to be processed and evaluated independently of the test stand.
