hydraulic/electric machines and the servo-cylinders are driven by Servo-Controls.
Depending on the system, the electronics
can also control the hydraulic power units or the manifold operating on the
The electronics control, monitor, manage
and record all test parameters.
The RT3 system is the result of a
customised design based on the integration of technologically advanced
components that are reliable, easy to find and to replace with the same ones in
their more advanced versions that the market from time to time will offer.
It is built on National Instrument’s Real
Time hardware platform and the software is fully developed with LabView. In
particular, the RT3 system consists of an “embedded” computer and one or more
acquisition and generation boards that are selected and matched according to
the specific features of the final application. The different components are
available on the market and are easy to find in case of updates or improbable
The RT3 control system is managed by a
software application that works with a Real Time operating system and
interfaces through a Ethernet network link with a normal PC in a Windows system, where a software application developed with LabView for system
management, user interface and storage of configurations and acquired data
In the RT3 system, the electronic modules
for transducer conditioning, servo-valve control and hydraulic equipment
management are integrated.
According to these ideas and considering
the versatility of its software, the system will remain valid and up to date
over time to meet the growing future operational needs.
The particular initial
configurations of the acquisition and generation boards allows to define the
number of control channels for the creation of complex test equipment.
