Dynamic backlash measurement

Add the METKIT sub-product to the core PLATO platform and perform dynamic backlash testing using rotation direction reversal and/or load (torque) reversal at speed.

For maximum accuracy, analyse over full hunting ('over-rolling') periods or, if cycle times dictate, analyse over shorter periods.  Report results relative to driver or driven gear.

Combine multiple load swaps at different loads to quickly compute zero-load lash.

Easily integrate to test machines

Simple OPC-communications between PLATO and test machines makes integration a breeze.

Cost-effective DAQ hardware

As standard, counter/timer DAQ-cards from National Instruments™ make for an extremely cost-effective dynamic backlash test solution.

Combine with TE and/or NVH testing

The modular nature of PLATO and its add-on sub-products means that test cycle combinations (e.g. NVH and backlash, NVH, backlash and transmission error testing etc.) can easily be constructed.

Clear, precise results

Dynamic backlash results are reported using PLATO’s intuitive test report, passed to the machine controller (PLC) via OPC and stored within PLATO’s results database (SQL) and optionally passed to the PLATO server.
