SoFIA SOFTWARE

SOFTWARE1

Years of experience in testing, combined with a powerful software have allowed LiTeM’s team technicians the development of the pneumatic and electrodynamic SoFIA test software in the Standard and Professional versions.

Easy and safe to configure tests, with full display of graphs and parameters in a single screen with overlapping layers, and logged data that is of genuine use to the operator – these are the keys to success of the SoFIA control software.

With a click of the mouse, the operator can display graphs against time, the XY graph of torque against angle, and the maxima and minima in relation to the completed cycles.

All graphs can be copied to the notes, and the data can be exported quickly and easily in text format.

The execution of a test is particular straightforward: the operator sets the safety limits, selects the control mode (force or displacement) and then sets the torque or angle to be applied, or sets the cycle frequency and maximum and minimum values. Control can also employ feedback over an auxiliary channel.

Compared to the Standard version, PRO provides advanced test functions, such as:
Analysis in profile, where the operator can configure his own test profile both in force and displacement control mode;
Analysis in Test Procedure mode, where the operator can define his own test procedure;
Advanced tool for sensor calibration, in order to execute the calibration curve in multiple points of the sensor and load the file before making the test.

The test parameters are logged by setting a sampling frequency from 10Hz to 1000Hz, with one button for enables continuous logging and another for maximum/minimum logging in relation to the set number of cycles.
