Control Cube servo controller

  • 19 bit
Data transmission rates
  • 0.4 kHz
Sampling rate
  • 4 kHz
Special feature
  • Ideal for servohydraulic testing systems (single axis/multi axis/torsion)

Fatigue and fatigue strength testing with maximum flexibility and efficiency

For fatigue and durability tests, the use of servohydraulic testing systems is preferred. The performance of these systems is determined to a large degree by the measurement and control electronics used, together with the associated testing software. ZwickRoell offers the servo controller Control Cube and the testing software Cubus for this purpose. They are ideally suited for new testing systems, for retrofitting existing servo-hydraulic testing systems and for multi-axis applications.

This system was developed by ZwickRoell in collaboration with CaTs3 (Consultants in Automated Test & Structural-dynamic Simulation Systems). The latter's long-standing experience and expertise is reflected in a highly effective and powerful product well able to cope with constantly increasing customer requirements while meeting ZwickRoell's high quality and safety standards.
During development, special attention was given to achieving a high degree of testing system flexibility and expandability.
