The isolation is necessary in order to guarantee the safety of the testers in case of fire, explosions and toxic material bursts, such as exhaust gas, flammable vapours and lubricants. Moreover, it reduces noise transmission towards the control room. The equipment also includes CO2 fire prevention systems.
The Control room hosts the test bench acquisition and control system, as well as the connections to the management systems, such as the software for the engine control panel and the control desks where the start and emergency-stop switches of the Engine Room are located.
In order to simplify the management of all the different functions of the Control room, the hardware has been connected to a personal computer with a dedicated software. The hardware and software system was developed by TECNOEL, and is named Nikor System.
The Nikor-USB 16-32c acquisition system is made up of two Nikor-USB 16c devices. By the means of a PC and of the NIKOR v. 1.0 software, the system is able to save the data coming from its 32 analogue ports, which collect the values measured by 4-20 mA sensors. It is also able to interact with the external environment through 16 digital input ports and 16 digital output ports. The system can be connected to a PC through a USB port for each one of the Nikor devices installed. The sensors are calibrated through the dedicated software.
AWe developed two projects based on the World Class Manufacturing (WCM), a methodology aiming at continuously improving the production performance, avoiding wastes and improving quality, safety, work conditions and environmental consciousness.
Cost Deployment, the main pillar of WCM, allows to assess which areas of the production process can be improved in order to optimize production and decrease losses and wastes.
Kaizen System allows the employees to submit their own ideas and solutions in order to gradually and continuously improve their own work.
