The digital control system RT3 is the result of twenty five years of experience in the field of
experimentation, with particular reference to material testing and simulation systems, working
for major industrial groups, research centres and Universities.
RT3 is the result of a custom design based on the integration of advanced technology components,
reliable, easy to find and to replace with the same that the market will offer in the more advanced
It’s built on the Real Time National Instrument hardware platform and the software is entirely
developed in LabView. In particular RT3 system is made up by an embedded computer and by one or more acquisition and generation boards that are selected and combined 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 update or improbable failure.
The RT3 control system is managed by an application software that works with a Real Time operating system and is interfaced by an ethernet link with a normal PC in a Windows XP environment, where reside application software developed with LabView for the system management, the user interface, the configurations database and the data acquisition.
Into RT3 system there are the electronic modules for the transducer conditioning, the drive of the
servovalves and the management of the hydraulic or electric devices. According to these ideas and considering the versatility of his software, the system will maintain
his value and his actuality in the years to satisfy the growing future operative needs. The particular initial configuration of RT3 can be upgraded to increase the number of control and acquisition channels to build complex testing devices.
RT3 can be used to drive and control servo hydraulic and/or electromechanical test systems.
