Key Product Features

Accurate

Optimum test data fidelity is achieved with adaptive control techniques, calculated channels, cascaded control loops and RPC interoperability

Versatile

An evolved EtherCAT interface, full-featured 793 software and MTS application software provide the tools needed to address a diverse array of test requirements

Scalable

Industry-proven, modular architecture can be readily scaled to support demands for higher performance, growing test complexity and expanding project volume

Synchronized

FlexTest controllers employ the same internal clock as MTS FlexDAC 20 units to provide the industry's only truly synchronized control and data acquisition solution
