Innovent is an engineering and manufacturing company, headquartered in Krefeld, Germany, delivering innovative cutting systems for the textile and paper industries all around the world. The company required a new tester system to be used for development, validation and production of customized cutting machines.
Innovent required a universal measurement and control desk, including various frequency converters for the control of asynchronous and servo drives. All converters were expected to be individually programmable and controllable, so that each motor inside the machine under test could be tested with suitable rotational speed, rotation direction and ramp signal.
Measurement data such as temperature, air pressure and rotational speed, from various sensors had to be sampled in order to compare the data to their target values.
An intuitive touch screen GUI should allow for well-directed configuration of testing scenarios and for adaption and parameterization of tests for special devices.
