Mechanical Transmission/Gearbox Diagnostics/Prognostics Test Rig
This test rig is a turn-key test rig you can use to study the transmission diagnostics/prognostics and gear dynamics.
Spectra Quest’s transmission diagnostics/prognostics test rig is a turn-key test rig you can use to study the transmission diagnostics/prognostics and gear dynamics. The bench-top system has a spacious modular design featuring versatility, operational simplicity, and robustness. Most of the common gear faults and configurations can be simulated with this test rig.
The transmission diagnostics/prognostics test rig offers you a wide range of tests you can do in gearbox health and usage monitoring, vibration based diagnostic techniques, lubricant condition and wear particle analysis, etc. The four components in a planetary gear train, sun, planet and ring gears and the carrier, as well as the bearings, can be seed faulted separately or combined. By performing the seeded fault tests, you can evaluate the different technologies for powertrain diagnostic/prognostics and make quantitative performance predictions for every piece of the gearbox.
In summary, this transmission diagnostics/prognostics test rig is an indispensable tool for researchers in the field of gear dynamics, gear diagnostics and prognostics.
