Eldy 100

Electrodynamic testing system

ELDY 100

Sistema di test elettrodinamico Eldy

The electrodynamic testing systems in the ELDY 100 family have been designed to run static, semi-static, dynamic and fatigue tests on a large variety of components and materials.

ELDY systems use motors with voice coil technology and single-phase power supply. Combined with RTC 9001 Controller and SS 9000 software, ELDY systems allow to reach high test frequency and displacement micrometric accuracy.

The presence of the movable cross strut and the width of the work surface make it easy to attach and grip even the most complex samples.

Real time test controller RTC 9000

Real Time Test Controllers

RTC 9000

Real time test controller RTC 9000

The RTC 9000 controller range has been developed and assembled in Italy, using the best available technologies; essential to perform precise and reliable mechanical structural tests, allowing for the management of different types of actuators and motors.

The RTC 9000 is a multi-axial controller (expandable up to 4 active axes); it can run static and cyclical tests both in displacement control, force control, aux (+/-10V) channel control and Encoder control; controlling simultaneously all the active axes. Additional 4 read-only analog input channels (synchronous with the active axes) complete the potential of this controller.

The RTC 9000 is the great controller for more complex tests that require the use of multiple simultaneous axes on the same object under test.

The system is configured in pneumatic mode (P) for the management of pneumatic actuators, electric mode (E) for the management of electric actuators or hydraulic mode (H) for the management of hydraulic actuators.

Applications
  • STATIC YIELD/FAILURE TESTING on composite materials and dental implants, etc.;
  • STIFFNESS TESTING on single and assembled components, metal, plastic and composite material products, 3D-printed and biological material products;
  • DYNAMIC TESTING with sine, pulsed square wave with settable duty cycle or constant speed triangle wave (e.g. for characterisation of suspensions/shock absorbers);
  • CONSTANT AMPLITUDE FATIGUE TESTING to determine the life under cyclic/repeated loads for any type of component (Wöhler curves);
  • CONSTANT AMPLITUDE BLOCK FATIGUE TESTING for the determination of the Palmgren-Miner relation and of the actual damage value;
  • VARIABLE AMPLITUDE FATIGUE TESTING using the reproduction/simulation in the laboratory of real world load curves acquired on-site;
  • REPRODUCTION OF LOAD CURVES Defined by the user during design phase, simulation of seismic tests.

RTC 9002

Real time test controller RTC 9002 Litem

The RTC 9002 controller range has been developed and assembled in Italy, using the best available technologies; essential to perform precise and reliable mechanical structural tests, allowing for the management of different types of actuators and motors.

The RTC 9002 is a bi-axial controller (non-expandable); it can run static and cyclical tests both in displacement control, force control, aux (+/-10V) channel control and Encoder control; controlling simultaneously the two active axes. Additional 4 read-only analog input channels (synchronous with the active axes) complete the potential of this controller.

The RTC 9002 is the great controller for bikes and bicycle tests (as per ISO 4210); pedalling tests, handlebar tests, bike frame stiffness tests and all those applications in which bi-axial tests have to be done.

The system is configured in pneumatic mode (P) for the management of pneumatic actuators, electric mode (E) for the management of electric actuators or hydraulic mode (H) for the management of hydraulic actuators.

Applications
  • STATIC YIELD/FAILURE TESTING on composite materials and dental implants, etc.;
  • STIFFNESS TESTING on single and assembled components, metal, plastic and composite material products, 3D-printed and biological material products;

Real time test controller rtc 9001

The RTC 9001 controller range has been developed and assembled in Italy, using the best available technologies; essential to perform precise and reliable mechanical structural tests, allowing for the management of different types of actuators and motors.

The RTC 9001 is a mono-axial controller (non-expandable); it can run static and cyclical tests both in displacement control, force control, aux (+/-10V) channel control and Encoder control. Additional 4 read-only analog input channels (synchronous with the active axis) complete the potential of this controller.

Software Tool PROFILE EDITOR

Tool

Software Tool PROFILE EDITOR

Profile Editor Tool is an additional component of the RTC 9000 software which allows variable profile, cyclical fatigue tests to be performed. The profile is generated directly by the operator on the software interface or with an external text editor and then loaded quickly onto the software tool.

The PROFILE EDITOR tool is essential when the replication is required for variable profile load curves, arising from acquisitions performed through sensors and data loggers applied directly on the component during normal operation or during in-field tests.

The test profile can equally be set with the control procedures available in RTC 9001 and RTC 9000 controller series, that is:

  • Position control
  • Force control
  • AUX 1 control (auxiliary channel)
  • Control with Encoder

The Time and Amplitude multiplier functions enable the designed profile to be changed quickly, by intervening on the times and amplitude of the measures selected for running the test (force-position- Aux1-encoder).
It is possible to select 4 different modes for interpolation of the points that define the profile.

The PROFILE EDITOR tool software is also applicable to RTC 9000 multi-axial systems. In this case it will be possible to assign a different load curve (profile) to each actuator. These profiles can be performed at the same time. PROFILE EDITOR is indispensable for pedalling test as per ISO 4210-6.
