Test rigs from Eckelmann are controlled by high-performance PCs, PXI systems or multiprocessor hardware. In the company’s in-house switch gear construction, industrial standard components are used for the electrical construction of the test rigs with all actuators and sensors.

Test rig automations from Eckelmann are based on the following hardware platform

  • Industrial PCs
  • PXI systems
  • FPGA modules
  • Multiprocessor hardware

As in software engineering, Eckelmann pursues a modular concept also for its hardware. The hardware is compiled individually, i.e. depending on the complexity of the specific testing task, the required data rate of measuring channels and the technical environment. Intelligent cameras or frame grabber cards round off the product range for image processing applications.
