DUAL TEST 7 Motor Testing Software

Data SheetManual
Magtrol’s DUAL TEST 7 is a state-of-the-art motor testing software for PC (Windows® XP sp3/7/8) based data acquisition. Used with a Magtrol Programmable Dynamometer Controller DSP7002, DUAL TEST 7 works on two channels independently with any Magtrol Dynamometer or In-Line Torque Transducer to help determine the performance characteristics of a motors under test. Up to 63 parameters are calculated and displayed utilizing DUAL TEST 7’s feature-rich testing and graphing capabilities.

LabviewAn integral component of any Magtrol Motor Test System, DUAL TEST 7 performs curve tests in a manner best suited to the overall efficiency of the test rig. Written in LabVIEW™, DUAL TEST 7 has the flexibility to test a variety of motors in a multitude of configurations. The data generated from this user-friendly program can be stored, displayed and printed in tabular or graphical formats, and is easily imported into a spreadsheet.

Magtrol can also make custom modifications to the software to meet additional motor testing requirements.
  • DSP7002 Programmable Controller Support
  • Full independent dual channels control software
  • Supports the optional Analog and Digital I/O Modules on the DSP7002 Programmable Controller.
  • Expanded power analyzer and power supply selections.
  • Programmable analog and digital outputs per step
  • Test speed, torque, amps, watts input, watts output and open loop parameters.
  • Capable of adjusting sampling rate and using step or ramp from one load point to the next.
  • Displays 63 Tested and Calculated Parameters: Torque, speed and auxiliary input are displayed from the DSP7002 Controller; amps, volts and watts from an (optional) power analyzer. Calculated values including horsepower, efficiency, power factor, output watts and time can also be displayed. Optional analog and digital inputs can also be displayed.
  • Three-Phase Power Analyzer Data Acquisition: Obtain data on each individual phase and/or the sum used in the chosen parameters (amps, volts, input watts and power factor).
  • Motor Shaft Direction Indicator: Indicates if the motor is turning clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • USB Interface : Computer interface USB2.0 available with DSP7002. Optional IEEE-488 or RS-232 can be added.
  • PID Adjustment Routines: Helps user adjust the system for ramp and step functions.
  • Graphing Capabilities: Display up to 5 test curves in a single graph; easy-to-read colored and labeled plots with several graph formatting options; manual or auto scaling.
  • Curve Fitting: A curve fitting routine can be applied to most motor test curves. Raw data and curve fit data can also be displayed simultaneously.
  • Save/Load Setup Function: Test procedure configurations may be stored and recalled using standard Windows® file structure

DUAL TEST 7—besides being well-suited for simulating loads, cycling the unit under test and motor ramping—is also ideal for production line, due to the full dual channels tests functions. Another time-saving feature, that engineering labs will benefit from, is the ability to duplicate tests and run them automatically. This versatile program is extremely valuable to anyone involved in motor testing..
