Control and Data Acquisition - Texcel V12

For automated control of the test process, data acquisition, and post test analysis, the TEXCEL V12 provides the ideal solution combining a powerful software system with an easy to use, intuitive Graphical User Interface. It has been designed for use in R&D, Quality Audit and other loaded test applications.

Texcek V12 Data Acquisition System



The fully integrated TEXCEL V12 features precise digital control and a sophisticated data acquisition system. The engine and dynamometer can be controlled manually using either an on screen virtual control panel or the manual control console. Automatic tests are defined using the test sequence editor which has been designed to allow the user to configure simple or sophisticated tests with ease. The data acquisition system can be used with all standard test bed instrumentation and provides fast and accurate measurements. Test bed data is displayed on fully user configurable pages and all measured data can be 4 level alarm checked and logged as required. The test results can be presents in Excel™ or in TexAn, Froude's test report generation system which can be used to produce multi-axes graphical plots, maps and tabular results automatically.

The standard function can be expanded by the addition of specific Emission Test application software for passenger car, truck and off-road regulatory exhaust emission tests. These include FTP75, Euro III, Euro IV and Euro V. In combination with an AC dynamometer, Texcel enables the vehicle characteristics such as gearbox, clutch and road load model to be simulated reducing engine development time and providing correlation with data produced by a vehicle tested on a chassis dynamometer.

TEXCEL V12 has the option to include direct ECU communications via K-line and CAN as well as an interface to dedicated calibration tools via the industry standard ASAM-MCD-3MC link. For fully automatic ECU calibration requirements, the TEXCEL V12 can be supplied with an ASAM-ACI interface.


The Froude TEXCEL V12 Control and Data Acquisition System is specifically designed for both steady state and transient test applications, such as Research and Development Quality Assurance, Performance - Evaluation and post overhaul testing.

It provides the latest generation of Windows™ based test equipment for a new facility or as a highly capable upgrade to an existing test cell. It can be used with AC, eddy current and hydraulic dynamometers.
