Teamtechnik: Modular software for transmission tests

Using Teamtechnik's teamsoft.TEST software, test sequences can be created and then optimized quickly and easily. The software can also be used on development test benches and in pre-production and series production

 



Nowadays, calibration is a vital function performed by a test bench. Having a flexible interface and the capability to record measurement data quickly, is essential in order to meet the demands of modern test processes. The number of variants and complexity of transmissions continues to rise. This includes manual and automatic transmissions, CVT, DCT, hybrid systems, and transfer cases and differentials. As a result, there are a growing number of interfaces to these test systems.

These demands can only be met by test software that has maximum flexibility, exceptional performance, and maximum possible compatibility with external interfaces. The best solution should also be user-friendly and easy to use.

Meeting the demands of any production system and transmission type
Teamtechnik is one of the world's leading companies in the field of flexible transmission test benches. The company has developed a new modular machine platform, which could be used to test a wide variety of different transmission types on the same platform – from development to pre-production tests, right through to series production. The modular software architecture has made it possible to create a completely standardized machine platform. teamsoft.TEST lies at the heart of this software architecture. It covers the requirements of all production system and transmission types, from MT, DCT through AT to PTU and RDM, and hybrid applications. The software consists of five modules: the programming system, database, analysis, runtime system, and visualization. Test sequences can be generated as web-based graphics, which can then be run on a National Instruments LabVIEW runtime system. Tests can be broken down into individual modules, which can be reused and recombined for new and different tasks. Test sequences can be implemented in a modular fashion with no limit on the depth of embedding.
 



Creating test sequences with drag and drop

The software has been designed for fully automatic testing of components in all types of transmissions in manually loaded test benches, development test benches, and fully automated series test benches. As well as being able to perform typical functional test sequences, it can also carry out calibration, placement and diagnostic processes. New processes can be prepared, or new parameters can be set for different test specimens, even whilst other tests are being performed. This has no effect on the tests that are running.
 



Another benefit is that users don't need to be IT experts to create a test sequence. The software runs seamlessly from any PC that is connected with teamsoft.TEST over the company intranet. It can simply be called up on a browser. The web-based programming system also enables users to configure the test bench and database, and to create and enter parameters for test sequences, without any programming knowledge. The software provides a multitude of wide-ranging evaluations and analyses for transmission testing. A test sequence can be changed and optimized flexibly without any specialist knowledge of the software. The sequence is created with a drag and drop process and there is an extensive library of functions.

Benefit from a mature diagnostics solution
Existing basic functions can be extended to meet specific requirements and combined to form new modules. Individual values and curves can be displayed and analyzed. The test results can be analyzed as a production report with batch tracing, visualization of characteristic curves, statistical production analysis, and system status and system faults. The test results can also be exported to an Excel or PDF file, or printed out as a report. This software solution also has open interfaces to transmissions and to measurement and control system sub-systems. Other systems, such as noise analysis systems, or external measurement and control technology, can also be integrated without any difficulty.
