The Solenoid Control System is designed for Cycling and Endurance Testing of electro-mechanical components like solenoids, relays, electromagnets, motors, actuators.

The system may be used as both an engineering evaluation and production quality assurance tool. Each system may drive up to thirty two independent devices with different actuation profiles.

The typical applications of the tester is life cycling of the solenoids, electro-magnets, relays, motors, voice coil motors, actuators, valves, keyboards, switches, and other applicable devices. The other applications of LC tester is testing and evaluation of shock and vibration systems.

The compact and stand-alone unit consists of controller,  drivers, and the power supplies. It conveniently connects to the serial port of the host computer.

The system may be controlled in different ways;

1) Stand-alone
In this mode, the controller does not need an external device such as a PC to operate. The controller is programmed in a simple programming language. The code is developed, downloaded to the controller, run and saved in the controller's non-volatile memory using the supplied Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software.

2) Externally Controlled
In this mode, the external host such as a PC, micro-controller or PLC sends a series of commands to the controller via the RS-232 serial port. The controller processes and performs the incoming commands and responds with proper messages.

3) Externally Triggered
In this mode, the external host such as a PC, micro-controller or PLC sends the controlling pulses to activate the solenoids.

 

The system interfaces to a wide variety of analog and digital transducers to monitor the output process. These include LVDTs, RVDTs, Proximity Sensors, Accelerometers, Optical Encoders, Laser Interferometers, Pressure Sensors and other similar devices.
