R&D, lifetime and end-of-line test labs
for Electric Motors and Gearboxes

By developing, designing and operating our own R&D test labs (test benches) for our products, we have a deep application know-how and offer a wide range of development solutions – from test labs for a “single” test specimen up to test labs with “back-to-back” configurations. In this connection, the applicable loads or load spectra are ranging from a few kilowatts up to several megawatts.
At SET the conception of both, the modular test lab development as well as the requirements for the measurement system and the actuators starts with a joint specification of the test scopes and the expected results together with the customer. In addition, measurement accuracy, reproducibility of measurement results, safety and ergonomics are matched with the individual operating environments.
The monitoring and control of the test lab is realized with a standard PLC. This furthermore allows our software engineers to integrate the automation of the test lab into existing systems.
