INERTIA Test System Automation Software
Powerful test cell development software for quickly implementing real-time control, data acquisition, and test applications
Test System Control and Automation Software
INERTIA™ is a highly configurable automation software for real-time control, data acquisition, and test applications that enables test, manufacturing, and R&D engineers and scientists to quickly and easily develop, configure, and operate test cell systems using a configuration-based software application.
Key Test Cell Applications
INERTIA is ideal for creating, upgrading, and modernizing real-time control and data acquisition systems, such as:
- Test Applications: dynamometers, hydraulics, and other custom test machines
- Industries: automotive, aerospace, industrial and commercial
- Motorized vehicles: cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, off-highway vehicles, motorcycles
- Components: combustion engines, hybrid and electric motors
For maximum flexibility and scalability, this platform-independent software allows users to integrate a wide range of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware that best meets their requirements.
- Efficient and streamlined for test system development and automation
- Powerful functionality that tightly couples data acquisition and control
- Customizable, scalable, and extensible through LabVIEW, MATLAB, and C
- Easy-to-use and highly intuitive for end user configuration of both simple and complex applications
- Open and COTS-based for maximum flexibility
- Ready-to-use closed-loop controllers with multi-axis synchronization and amplitude control
- Multi-mode control support with bumpless transfer between modes
- Intuitive test editor with easy-to-follow dialog boxes, auto-generated scripting, and preview abilities
- Easy GUI development with application-specific, drag-and-drop tools
- Integrated PID control loop tuning utility
