To be able to offer to our customers superior and intelligent control of rotational or linear motion machinery especially for dynamometer systems, HORIBA has developed the SPARC controller platform. This platform includes dedicated and optimized hardware and software which incorporates more than 20 years of experience in control technologies. Based on this platform HORIBA is offering a variety of control and simulation packages for engine, driveline, vehicle and brake testing. The extension of the SPARC controller platform with the STARS automation platform technology creates modern, intelligent and user friendly controller products.
HORIBA is providing a wide range of equipment for testing of complete vehicles or various components of a vehicle like brakes, engines, transmissions or axles. All these applications have in common the need for control of speed, torque and position of one or more dynamometers to apply the required load to the unit under test. The requirements for this control function are quite similar for all application domains.
