The mMTB offers the advantage of testing a wide variety of motor applications within an office setup. This allows a rapid development process, enhancing the product life cycle.

// Use of customized motor and electronic control unit in the same load motor

With its mechanical modules and diverse load profiles, the mMTB allows for quick setup and development of custom motor applications across various motor types. The mMTB has a power supply capable of voltages up to 60 VDC and currents up to 50 A, suitable for test objects up to 1 kW. Additionally, it provides up to 768 W of continuous power for the load motor.

// Incorporated TraceBox for enhanced test bench functionality

The integration of the TraceBox into an embedded system expands the mMTB´s functions. This includes time synchronization via EtherCAT as well as the identification and analysis of software bugs and system behavior.

// Specifically designed for office use

By using the mMTB at the developer's workstation, the developer has the opportunity to receive permanent feedback about their modifications and improvements, which accelerates the development process. Thanks to its compact and robust design, the mMTB conforms to the required safety standards and upgrades the development workspace to the next level.

// Rapid verification of motor control algorithms & signal analysis

Flexible data management ensures and speeds up result-oriented analysis. The acquisition and processing of controller-internal data takes place time-synchronously and with real-time capability.

One mMTB for various use cases

  • Developing and testing variety of motor applications
  • Using one test motor with one electronic control unit
  • Simple adjustment due to standardized mechanical elements
  • Individual tools with integrated data tracing & debugging (e.g. MOTIX™ Embedded Software)

The mMTB is connected with the PC and combines the TraceBox, load motor (LM) and integrated power supply (IPS) in a safe development environment to test the device under test (DUT). This latter includes the motor and the electronic control unit (ECU). The mMTB is attached to an external load power supply (LPS) as well.
