Shifter / Component Test Cell with Environmental Chamber

The Huff Technologies Shifter / Component test cells can test shifters, cables, transmissions, and other components huff_shifter_cell_test_medat very high cycle rates and are extremely durable.  Utilizing linear servo motors testing shifters/ cables/ transmissions (manual or automatic), they are 3 to 5 times faster than traditional testers.  They are easily user programmable or may run predefined programs.  They may also be used to test other components such as levers, knobs, actuators, steering components, chassis components, etc.  They are available in one, two, or three axis controls.  With the environmental chamber shown, the can test components to -65C to 100C.    System advantages include:

  • Direct drive linear servo system offers reduced maintenance and longer service life in rugged industrial environments. Linear motors provide complete control on the basis of force, speed, trajectory or position. Direct drive – no belts, screws, cams or gears to wear out
  • High speed movements up to 20ft/sec and accelerations to 40g
  • Operating life to 2 billion cycles
  • Peak motor forces to 230lb (1024N)
  • Strokes up to 72” (1830mm)
