SHOW NEWS: Test automation and control software from Renk

0

Center of attention at the Renk Test System booth was the new Renk Dynamic Data System – completely new test control, automation and user-interface software that has been three years and €1m (US$1.12m) in the making.

The new, far more flexible package consists of base software that can then be adapted to the application’s specific requirements by engineers from Renk and the customer. The user can influence the programming in a similar fashion to a PLC, but a PLC can also be used to run simpler elements of the test rig, without it having to interface directly with the Dynamic Data System’s base software. This enables the commissioning of a new rig to begin even before its software has been completely developed. Renk believes that the commissioning time for a rig can be cut by up to 40% under the new setup.

The Dynamic Data System’s flexibility extends to operating systems, too, which should make it easier and cheaper for customers to install. At the time of writing, Renk already has one test bench up and running, with two more in the commissioning phase.
