This test stand is used to perform tests on electrical axle drives by simulating different realistic driving operation situations. The high flexibility of the test stand enables it to be switched between operation as a battery simulator and vehicle inverter and speed or torque control of all machines. In addition, battery simulations, recuperation simulations, or drag torque measurements can be performed.

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.
