Magtrol’s M-TEST 7 is a state-of-the-art motor testing program for PC (Windows® 7 SP1) based data acquisition. Used with a Magtrol Programmable Dynamometer Controller, M-TEST 7 works with any Magtrol Dynamometer or In-Line Torque Transducer to help determine the performance characteristics of a motor under test. Up to 63 parameters are calculated and displayed utilizing M-TEST 7’s feature-rich testing and graphing capabilities.
National Instruments LabVIEW an integral component of any Magtrol Motor Test System, M-TEST 7 performs ramp, curve, manual, pass/fail, coast, temperature, locked rotor temperature and running heating temperature tests in a manner best suited to the overall efficiency of the test rig. Written in LabVIEW™, M-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.
NOTE: M-TEST 7 does not support the following:
- 5240, 4629B or older controllers
- 4612B, 4614B or older power analyzers
- National Instruments FieldPoint analog I/O
- Advantech PCL-725, PCI-1760 digital I/O
**MTEST-7 Motor Test Software is offered as a single seat license. Additional seats can be purchased and added to the original license. Contact sales for pricing.**

License Verification via Crypkey Casper E-Register
Casper eRegister provides automatic authorization of M-TEST 7 using serial numbers. With this solution, the customer pre-pays the license fee and is then provided with a serial number to automatically obtain a code to unlock M-TEST 7 via the Internet. Casper eRegister works 24/7/365, without human intervention.
Just click on the electronic registration button on the M-TEST 7 license configuration screen.
Analog Input Measurement
Up to 128 thermocouples or analog sensors can be read and monitored during a motor test. Heat rise curves on the bearings, windings and housing of a motor can be performed and air flow/exhaust efficiencies can be measured with an air tool or internal combustion engine. M-TEST 7, with its complete dynamometer control, even allows for analog measurement while performing load simulation for duty cycle and life testing.
M-TEST 7—besides being well-suited for simulating loads, cycling the unit under test and motor ramping—is also ideal for production line and inspection applications, due to its pass/fail test function. 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.
