Motor-Testing Systems

The Micro Dyne System tests micro low-torque motors (resolving to 0.0004 mN-m on a 2 mN-m scale).

This system has a maximum kinetic power rating of 4 W and maximum speed rating of 100,000 rpm. Potential applications include testing miniature motors used in medical and laboratory equipment, robotics and automation, toys, handheld communication devices, audio/video equipment, optics and photonics, aerospace and defense, security and instrumentation, and industrial machinery. The system includes a hysteresis dynamometer, a motor fixture (accommodating motors from 5 to 30 mm in diameter), electronics unit (an all-in-one dynamometer controller, wattmeter, power relay, and USB interface), motor testing and calibration software, connection cables, and calibration weights.
