What's New in INERTIA

    With INERTIA 2013, engineers can implement complex test applications easily and efficiently with the latest features in our updated test profile editor.  With these new capabilities, you can develop reusable test procedures, create custom test steps, and spawn unlimited parallel processes within a test.

    Top New Features

    INERTIA 2013  Reusable Sub Procedures

    Reusable Sub-Procedures

    Save commonly used tasks as scripts that can be easily reused within your test profiles.  For example, store tasks for warm-up, ramping, pass/fail checks, and so on. Then call the sub-procedures within each and every test profile with a simple drag-and-drop.

    INERTIA 2013  Parallel Test Processes

    Unlimited Parallel Test Processes

    Create as many processes as you want when running a test. For example, count switch events in one process, and monitor temperature and turn cooling water on and off in another. All processes run in parallel with INERTIA’s closed loop control to provide extensive, intuitive control of your test system.

    INERTIA 2013  Custom Test Steps

    Custom Test Steps

    Configure your own completely custom test steps, complete with a step parameter dialog, to achieve the most exact and efficient test capabilities possible. If our native ramp step doesn’t suit you, you can build your own based on our included templates and examples.

    INERTIA 2013 Test Previewer

    Test Previewer

    Simulate your test profiles in a virtual environment to completely test their functionality prior to running them on the physical system.  You can pause, fast forward and single-step through any profile while monitoring its setpoint generation and adjusting input channels.

    INERTIA 2013  Revision Tracking

    Revision Tracking

    Track changes to your test profiles by adding revision numbers and comments to the test profiles to help provide useful documentation and troubleshoot issues.

    Other Features

    • Cascaded control loops: Control multi-stage devices simply and intuitively through INERTIA’s native cascade control loops
       
    • Gain scheduling capabilities: Create hundreds of different tuning gain sets for each and every control loop and have INERTIA automatically select which set to use based on your criteria
       
    • Minimum and maximum limit loops: Use these optional control loops to provide automatic control transfer for a limiting loop when the user-defined limit is reached
