Kistler launches modular test stand system

Kistler has launched a modular test stand system designed for testing electric motors and gearing in the research and development laboratory, at production end of line and for quality assurance analysis.

The test stands can incorporate a wide range of torque and speed sensors with manual or computer control. The computer controlled test stands can be equipped with an integrated power analyser with up to 12 voltage and 12 current measurement channels to provide separate efficiency specification for the motor and converter.

The load on the motor under test is provided by an active brake working in four quadrants. Sensors to measure torque from 0.01 to 25,000 Nm, power from 2 W to 500 kW and speed up to 120,000 rpm may be combined with a wide range of mechanical components, power analyser for data logging, signal conditioning and data interface to produce a test stand to meet the most demanding specification. Standard and customised software packages may be specified.

The modular design concept allows a test stand to be supplied quickly and cost effectively to meet any specification using well proven sub-systems.

Kistler Group
Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 25 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1050, the Kistler Group is one of the world's leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation with a turnover of 210 million Swiss Francs (GBP 145M) in the 2010 financial year.
Kistler's core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration. Kistler's know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analysing physical processes, controlling and optimising industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.
Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff worldwide are engaged in research and development, has generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric, piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems. These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor, two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for use up to 400 Deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
