BUFFALO, NEW YORK— Magtrol, Inc. has introduced its newest motor testing Software. M-TEST 7 is a state-of-the-art motor testing program for PC (Windows® 7/XP) based data acquisition. Used with a Magtrol Programmable Dynamometer Controller, M-TEST 7 works with any Magtrol Dynamometer or In-Line Torque Transducer to help determine the performance characteristics of a motor under test. Up to 63 parameters are calculated and displayed utilizing M-TEST 7's feature-rich testing and graphing capabilities.
An integral component of any Magtrol Motor Test System, M-TEST 7 performs ramp, curve, manual, pass/fail, coast and overload to trip tests in a manner best suited to the overall efficiency of the test rig. Written in LabVIEW™, M-TEST 7 has the flexibility to test a variety of motors in a multitude of configurations. The data generated from this user-friendly program can be stored, displayed and printed in tabular or graphical formats, and is easily imported into a spreadsheet. Magtrol can also make custom modifications to the software to meet additional motor testing requirements. Magtrol is a globally respected manufacturer of high-quality products to test, measure and control torque-speed-power, load-force-weight, tension and displacement.

New features include user friendly tabbed pages for quick navigation, optional Analog and Digital I/O providing more device flexibility, DSP7000 Programmable Controller support, expanded power analyzer and power supply selections and additional test choices (coast and overload to trip). M-TEST 7—besides being well-suited for simulating loads, cycling the unit under test and motor ramping—is also ideal for production line and inspection applications, due to its pass/fail test function. Another time-saving feature that engineering labs will benefit from, is the ability to duplicate tests and run them automatically. This versatile program is extremely valuable to anyone involved in motor testing.
