Model 1614 Starter Motor Test Stand

The Model 1614 Starter Motor Test Stand tests automotive starters in a production environment to identify defective starters. It applies a load to the motor, which simulates actual operating conditions, and then it acquires data, compares data points with predetermined limits, determines pass/fail and graphically displays and saves each test result. It typically runs a free spin and performance test on each motor. The ProLINK control system facilitates testing up to 110 starter motors per hour. The test motor is mounted into a fixture and secured by hydraulic clamps. A pneumatic cylinder contacts the starter terminals and the test is run. Sensors measure current, voltage, speed and reaction torque. A pneumatic cylinder and die marks each starter that passes the test.
