INERTIA Test Software
Powerful real-time control software for quickly implementing test cell control and data acquisition solutions.
Real-Time Control Software for Test Systems
INERTIA™ is a powerful test automation and real-time control software solution specifically designed to quickly and efficiently implement test applications. This software add-on for NI VeriStand provides a seamless, integrated control solution for test cell applications such as dynamometer and servo-hydraulic test systems.
INERTIA has been successfully deployed in a wide range of test cell control systems, such as:
- Engine cells, transmissions, and motors
- Actuators and pumps
- Turbines and gear boxes
- Auxiliary power units (APUs)
- Tire test systems
- Life cycle durability
- Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) testing
This software is ideal for any multi-mode or multi-axis control application that uses dynamometers or hydraulic control.
INERTIA is a prepackaged set of control-specific features for NI VeriStand with:
- Ready-to-use closed-loop controllers with multi-axis synchronization and amplitude control
- Multi-mode control support with bumpless transfer between modes
- Tightly integrated test editor with control procedure commands and model execution
- Application-specific tools and UI objects for the NI VeriStand workspace
- Integrated PID control loop tuning utility
