FIG. 3: The operator interface for Innkeeper LLC’s InnControl test platform runs on a PC and allows test engineers to set up and monitor tests without requiring any detailed motion control programming. In the image above, two separate test groups are controlling three motion axes simultaneously.

the RMC controller, plus the standard functions can be supplemented with custom-built control functions implemented using the user program feature of Delta’s RMCTools software. According to Kretschmann, “With the RMC’s custom user programs, I can switch over from a straightforward multi-axis test controller to providing any sort of custom performance we or our customers can imagine. Other test controllers can’t do this.” For example, Innkeeper used custom motion programs to implement the FMVSS 202 automotive seat tester,
which involved exercising force and position control at defined intervals during the test profile to meet federal specifications. “It would have been very hard to do this with other controllers,” continued Kretschmann. To operate custom testing functions, Innkeeper’s software supports the use of a “button box” (Fig. 4) whose functionality is customizable after the initial installation / integration is complete. In this particular case, the button box is used to initiate a series of custom sequences designed to remove air from a radiator prior to a pressure-controlled
