Traverse Systems

Traverse for Full Scale Wind Tunnel

A Full Scale Wind Tunnel is used for testing cars in full scale.

The traverse has typically 3 linear axes including a Gantry axis. Optionally one or more rotational axes can be added.

A traverse for a full scale wind tunnel is designed in close cooperation with the customer.

The construction is optimized with FEA to achieve low blockage, high natural frequency and high stiffness, resulting in a high stability in the wind and very precise positioning.

The power control system for the traverse contains servo motors with servo amplifiers, range limit switches, safety PLC's and a number of analog and digital I/O's. EtherCat is used as the process control interface.

The control software is based on a real-time PLC running on a Windows platform. On top of this, the software that makes up the operator interface is running.

The traverse can be controlled from a local computer, a handbox or remotely through an ethernet connection.
