*Not recommended for new designs.*
Magtrol's Model DSP6001 High-Speed
Programmable Dynamometer Controller employs
state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processing Technology
to provide superior motor testing capabilities. Designed
for use with any Magtrol Hysteresis, Eddy-Current* or Powder Brake* Dynamometer, Magtrol In-Line Torque Transducer or auxiliary instrumentation, the DSP6001 can provide complete PC
control via IEEE-488 or RS-232 interface. With 120 readings
per second, the DSP6001 is ideally suited for both the test lab and the production line.
Two Channels:: Enable the unit to support up to two testing instruments with independent or tandem configurations.
Built-in Alarm System: For power, speed, torque, temperature, air flow, water flow, electrical overload and external inputs
Torque/Speed Analog Outputs: For interface with a data acquisition system or strip chart recorder
Two Standard Computer Interfaces: RS-232 and IEEE-488
High Speed Data Acquisition: 120 torque and speed points per second via IEEE bus
(approx. 60/sec. via RS-232)
High Quality, Easy-to-Read Vacuum Fluorescent Readout: Displays torque, speed, power, auxiliary and PID (proportional gain, integral and derivative) values
Fast Full-Curve Data Acquisition: Free-run to locked rotor in seconds
Speed & Torque Operating Modes: Provide independent PID settings for improved Dynamometer control
Built-in Current Regulated Supply: For use with Hysteresis Dynamometer only
Adjustable Torque Units: English, Metric and SI are standard
Dynamometer Overload Protection ---
Digital Filter: Removes undesired noise from torque signals
Cross Loop Function: Allows closed loop control of brake via torque transducer
Programmable Digital PID Values: Controlled and stored via M-TEST software or controlled manually
Saving: Saves programmed values within configuration
Auxiliary ± 10 VDC Analog Input: For additional transducer
Single or Multi-point Torque and Speed Stabilized Testing: Via M-TEST software
Calibration: Closed box calibration
Rack Mounting: 19 in (482.6 mm) rack mounts with handles
In the laboratory, the DSP6001's high sample rate provides superior resolution for data acquisition and curve plotting. This allows for capturing more usable motor test data during switching, breakdown and other transitional areas of the motor test curve. For production and incoming inspection, the DSP6001 displays torque, speed and power at all times, allowing the dynamometer controller to be used as a manual stand alone unit or as part of a complete PC system.
