Starter Endurance Tester & Engine Simulator

  • Endurance test of up to four starters at the same time
  • Duplicates engine compression stroke
  • Replaces live engine testing
  • Designed to deliver maximum capabilities, flexibility and accuracy optimized with extended measuring and documentation functions
  • Excellent choice for design and prototype labs, endurance testing, product quality assurance, component validation-verification, and warranty analysis centers
  • Automated test with completely programmable scripting of test procedures
  • Proprietary starter ripple current analysis technique is able to detect, graphically display and quantify armature, brush, commutator, faulty connections and other problems, is synchronized to one revolution of starter armature
  • Engine cranking profiles provide complete control of the compression stroke pulsation's applied to the starter
  • Engine Cranking Profile Generator for creation of new cranking profiles
  • Performance test can be executed after programmable quantity of crank profile cycles
  • Captures Peak and Average:  starter voltage, current and torque via high speed data acquisition system.  High Speed Data also captured for: torque, current, starter voltage, contact voltage drop and speed.
  • Over Speed (over-run) capabilities up to 30,000 RPM
  • Uses the Ring Gear from the starter's application
  • Flywheel stop position can be controlled and varied with a Gaussian Distribution
  • Computer controlled programmable up to 3000 Amp power supply with less than 200mV ripple, simulating 200-4000 CCA batteries (0-30 milliohms).
  • Easy to use test specification editor for creation and editing of test conditions and specifications.
  • Programmable limits for the quantity of individual and sequential starter failures before starter is dropped from the testing cycle.
  • Smart Delays for starter temperature monitoring, if the starter is above the maximum temperature the tester will skip the starter and continue with the next starter in the sequence.
  • Pause test feature allows a sample to be removed for analysis, testing can continue and later the sample can be placed back on the test and resume testing
  • Expanded report capabilities.  User programmable report generator sends results to MS Excel for cranking cycle and performance report print out
  • Individual statistical files for each starter, previous results retrievable for display and analysis
  • Expandable measuring system for custom requirements.
  • Temperature inputs and auxiliary analog channels available for customer defined measurements
  • Individual starter cooling fans with programmable fan on and fan off settings
  • Layout of test and enclosure can be configured in a variety of configurations for ease of installation
  • Axial and Radial starter position adjustment system
  • Provisions for external battery connections for use as the power supply
