Functions overview

There are two main categories of use:

  • automatic execution of tests according to the standards;
  • interactive use for free R&D tests.


Automatic execution mode

In this mode, the tests are pre-defined in the software according to the standards, but some freedom is left to the user, who can set some parameters of the tests according to his preferences. In order to run a certain test, the operator selects it from a menu: an Editor panel appears on the screen about the selected test. The operator can confirm or adjust a list of parameters in that panel.


R&D interactive use

This feature gives the user a set of powerful tools for free tests. In short, the operator can manage every resource of the bench working with mouse and keyboard on a Synoptic graphic diagram showing the bench circuits. It includes active elements (valves, switches, proportional/modulating valves etc.) that the operator can control. Installation requirements: gas compressed air water cooling water electricity water drains


Installation requirements:

  • compressed air
  • water
  • electricity
  • water drains
