CTX test system

Automatic gearboxes, especially advanced CTXs (continuously variable transaxle) aren’t widespread in agricultural machinery. Nevertheless, one of Germany’s leading companies in that field, AMAZONEN Werke, develops and produces various types of such gearboxes.

In contrast to ‘normal’ gearboxes, CTXs have no discrete gears and therefore special measurements and tests have to be carried out.

Engineers from AMAZONEN approached imc for a turn-key solution for CTX inspection. In response, imc has developed an automated CTX test stand and measurement system.

The test stand's hardware foundation is the versatile imc measurement system μ-MUSYCS. Using the imc COMproducts, the test rig's user interface was mainly written in Visual BASIC. The offline data analysis and evaluation software
imc FAMOS can be used by engineers to perform advanced, test rig-independent data evaluation. ⇒ more
