Test Automation System for Brake Testing
STARS Brake is an integrated automation, data acquisition and control system platform that provides a comprehensive application functionality in a single, powerful environment. STARS Brake is designed to address the needs of a wide range of brake testing applications from component development to ﬁnal component and system validation. It offers users a level of ﬂexibility and openness that enables thorough investigations of brake systems.
STARS Brake and Electrification
HORIBA has also integrated regenerative braking into STARS Brake, enabling the user to accurately reproduce realistic test conditions and simulate the in-vehicle operation these new systems have on the vehicles’ brakes. STARS Brake has the ability to incorporate the regenerative braking algorithm developed by the manufacturer, providing the user the ability to determine the effect on the brake system.
Application examples of STARS Brake include:
STARS Brake Application Suites
STARS Brake offers users a level of flexibility and openness that is unmatched in the market. The STARS Brake experts can provide a variety amount of well-known industry test procedures and can also develop customer specific test procedures. To eliminate test down-time all test procedures come pre-loaded on the STARS Brake workstation or can also be transferred digitally allowing the user to simply load the program.
The HORIBA STARS Brake Application Suites consist of ‘ready-to-go’ test procedure(s) according to the relevant brake test specifications. The suites include any STARS resource which is required to run the test immediately e.g. test schedules, data loggers, display pages, limit sets and much more. The measuring data will be stored in STARS data format, as numerical DIAdem® sheets (Full Sheet) and as a standard test report or complete National Instruments DIAdem® based data evaluation.
The HORIBA Brake Application Suites include a full range of public standards for brake testing for hydraulic and pneumatic actuated disc and drum brakes. They contain performance tests as well as NVH procedures of passenger car brakes and light to heavy duty truck brakes. Additionally, HORIBA provides more than 50 application suites of well-known, global OEMs.
