On the endurance test rig, two or four cardan shafts can be tested simultaneously in a closed load circuit with multi-block programs. Parameters such as speed, torque, jounce, joint angle and temperature are measured or controlled. Safety-related values are recorded during the test so that the test rig is automatically stopped in the event of a fault.

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.
