The ServoEDGE servo-hydraulic controller is an integrated, multi-loop control and data acquisition system for servo-hydraulic applications, including system modernizations, new installations, turnkey solutions, and complete test cell control and data acquisition.
ServoEDGE provides both speed and torque control with four control channels that can be configured for ±100 mA, ±10 V, and ±20 mA.
The system is housed in a single, full-height, 19” rack-mount enclosure and is built on NI VeriStand software and the Wineman Technology INERTIA add-on, embedded on a multi-core NI PXI real-time controller. INERTIA software for real-time control provides advanced control features and a powerful, intuitive software interface for simplified mode control, test profile generation, and setup.
ServoEDGE is designed and pre-configured using both NI PXI hardware and Wineman Technology’s integrated connector blocks and power module to minimize cost and simplify connectivity and integration. The system provides a wide range of I/O capabilities, including frequency, encoder, strain gauge, thermocouple inputs, and numerous TTL and 24 VDC digital I/O, and the system is designed to be scalable and customizable by the end user.
ServoEDGE is a complete hydraulic control, monitoring, and data acquisition system that features:
INERTIA is a powerful add-on for NI VeriStand specifically designed for quickly and efficiently implementing real-time control and test applications. Created by Wineman Technology, this complementary software tool enhances the capabilities of the NI VeriStand Real-Time Engine, System Explorer, Workspace and Stimulus Profile Editor to seamlessly work together as an integrated control solution for test cell applications such as dynamometer and servo-hydraulic test systems.
Designing and building a test cell from ground up is a complex process that requires detailed planning, requirements definition, and knowledge of potential problem areas. As experts in the field of test system integration, Wineman Technology has created a free PDF presentation that shares their insights and recommendations for solving these challenges.
