Greater flexibility in automotive car seat testing

Moog Industrial Group : 07 February, 2015  (Application Story)
Moog has developed a three-channel electromechanical test system to simulate loads on the seatback and benches of vehicles. The system has been installed at a car seat manufacturer in Asia that manufactures complete seating systems and interior components for automotive and transport companies.
Greater flexibility in automotive car seat testing
The test system is based on a portable test controller, three Moog electric linear actuations and incorporates brushless servomotor and ball-screw technology, three servo drives and user-friendly commissioning software. The system is easy to setup, maintain and move around in the test lab. Clean operation is especially important when testing is performed inside a car. In addition to seats and benches, other applications can be tested , including car doors and panels, car accessories, assemblies, gear levers, pedals and seat belts.
 
All of the components are optimised to maximise performance and accuracy. The three electric servo motors move the actuators in a vertical direction to compensate for vertical displacement of the seats. An angle sensor placed on the seat provides information concerning seat displacement in order to determine the correct actuator height.
 
The Moog portable test controller is a digital servo controller capable of running hydraulic, pneumatic or electric test actuators and 6-DOF hydraulic simulation tables. It can control up to six channels in one chassis. The software accesses the embedded user interface of the portable test controller. It can be used standalone directly through the display or by using a mobile device. Tasks such as calibration and tuning and test setup are facilitated via the PC software interface, with the ability to run multiple stations simultaneously.
