ELMO - ELectric MOtor test environment

The Scientific Solutions Elmo test system is designed for the durability testing of electric motors and systems. The Elmo system incorporates a modular design for ease of expansion. The system contains software and programmable hardware to control electric window motor UP/DOWN position, detect stall over-current conditions and monitor failures. It consists of a self-contained computer incorporating a Scientific Solutions data acquisition system that connects to a Master Control Unit (MCU). The MCU has one connector for cabling back to the computer and four additional connectors for cabling to Device Control Units (DCU). Each DCU can control up to four devices. A fully configured system, can simultaneously test 16 electric window motors, i.e. four "virtual" cars when used for automotive electric window testing.
