What do we offer?

This test rig is available for:

  • Efficiency (input/output method);
    • According to the applicable standards
      • Input/output according to IEC 60034-2-1, IEC 60034-2-3 and IEC61800-9
      • Indirect method according to IEC 60034-2-1
    • If very high accuracy (<1%) is required when measuring losses, a calorimeter is available (see ITHACA test infrastructure).
  • Characterisation of machines;
  • Status monitoring: 
    • Control and dynamic processes of drives (DOL or with frequency converter);
  • Belt drives and gearboxes
  • And (in-situ) magnetic material characterisation.
