Control & Data Acquisition

Revolutionary Engineering Pro System

At the core of our operation is our control and data acquisition system for comprehensive dynamometer testing — Revolutionary Engineering Pro System (REPS). The flexible and intuitive REPS front-end design provides you with complete control over every aspect of the test cell.

The REPS system operates on an advanced software platform with a LabVIEW real-time operating system and a quad core, PXI controller. REPS has a channel-based configurable graphical interface allowing for easy test set up and variations. All I/O communication is performed via a dedicated EtherCAT-based network, which significantly reduces wiring and installation costs as well as signal-noise issues.
