INERTIA Real- Time Control System Software

Real-Time Control Software for Test Systems

INERTIA™ is a powerful test automation and real-time control software solution specifically designed to quickly and efficiently implement test applications. This software add-on for NI VeriStand provides a seamless, integrated control solution for test cell applications such as dynamometer and servo-hydraulic test systems.

INERTIA has been successfully deployed in a wide range of test cell control systems, such as:

  • Engine cells, transmissions, and motors
  • Actuators and pumps
  • Turbines and gear boxes
  • Auxiliary power units (APUs)
  • Tire test systems
  • Life cycle durability
  • Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) testing

This software is ideal for any multi-mode or multi-axis control application that uses dynamometers or hydraulic control.
