SAKOR Technologies Provides Upgraded Electric Cam Phaser Durability Test Stand for Major International Provider of Drivetrain Components

Powerful test stand adds motor control and communication versatility

SAKOR Technologies Inc., a recognized leader in the area of high-performance dynamometer systems, announces that it recently upgraded an existing electric variable cam timing (eVCT) durability test system for a major international provider of powertrain components. Custom designed for use with cam phasers driven by an electric motor, the powerful and versatile test stand will be used for running long term durability tests on new electric cam phaser designs. SAKOR's industry-leading DynoLAB™ data acquisition and control system will replace the existing controller for test cell and other subsystems control and data acquisition.


SAKOR upgraded the existing eVCT durability test system by adding torque transducers and additional data acquisition channels, as well as enhancing the mechanical driveline topology. The final system also adds enhanced motor control and communications network versatility.

The new DynoLAB data acquisition and control system offers complete automation of all types of test cycles used in performance, durability, and quality control testing. It provides reliable fully automated test procedures for all customer testing protocols. The system enables the customer to create their own tests and testing protocols and make changes without requiring assistance.

"With this upgraded system our customer has significantly added to their testing capabilities" said Randal Beattie, president of SAKOR. "They are now able to perform durability testing on a much broader array of their products, and over a much wider range of conditions, all in a clean laboratory environment.

TE Connectivity - Single Pair Ethernet (SPE)

Single Pair Ethernet enables high speed communication up to 1 Gb/s in a cost-effective solution that reduces complexity, space and weight by transmitting over two wires rather than four of eight. In robotics and industrial applications, this weight reduction enables faster movements and lowered energy consumption while enabling data and power up to 50W over a single twisted pair. TE Connectivity is a proud founding partner in the Industrial Partner Network who is driving the adoption of Single Pair Ethernet technology.
