Modular Tools for Product Testing, AXIS with InnControl

AXIS Controller

What is AXIS?

Discover the value of AXIS, a modular electronic servo control system by Innkeeper LLC. Developed from thousands of hours of real-world experience in the automotive, aviation and marine industries. AXIS, with the InnControl software platform ensures efficient durability, fatigue and performance testing performance.

The AXIS Advantage

Whether you need to work with fatigue strength, tension/pull, pressure/burst, deflection, displacement or strain, AXIS interfaces with actuators, sensors, command, and safety signals to simulate real-world stresses on your components and assemblies.

Legacy Product Replacement and Expansion

Many labs still rely on older products like the 407, 2370, 5900, VT-6008. AXIS not only replaces these legacy products but also enhances test automation features when paired with our InnControl™ software. This rejuvenates existing equipment through control retrofits and powers new test stations with advanced features.

Value Proposition

AXIS was designed to balance cost, function, flexibility, and stability inherent in all closed-loop controllers. Using widely available components and a User Interface centered around the needs of both the test engineer and the operator, InnControl delivers a highly reliable, low-risk, and cost-effective control system. Perfect for any application requiring precision, InnControl adapts to various hardware types, is easy to configure, and boasts a user-friendly interface. It excels in controlling hydraulic, pneumatic, and electro-mechanical systems as well as managing pressure, temperature, and power delivery. Its intuitive design reduces setup errors, offering a flexible testing tool built with the end-user in mind.

Field Support

When it comes to field support, we excel both in-person and remotely. Our prompt response and comprehensive assistance set us apart. However, InnControl systems don’t rely solely on Innkeeper support. We provide all sub-component documentation and a full system diagram with every project, empowering any qualified technician to isolate and replace any individual component if needed. Choose InnControl and Innkeeper for your testing needs – because we’re not just about testing, we’re about building your solutions.

In the dynamic world of product testing, meeting requirements can be a challenge. That’s why we developed AXIS – to give lab management and staff a flexible tool that evolves with their needs. Over the past decade, we have optimized AXIS to be both cost-effective and adaptable, meeting custom requirements while keeping it affordable for those who need one or two channels. AXIS retains the essential features for single station testing while standardizing to keep costs down. It’s the heart of our closed-loop testing offering.

2U height, 19” rack for desktop or rack mounting.
Emergency Stop function can also be linked to external buttons.
Reset the system from physical button or through software.
Just the facts, indicators for power, error condition.
Robust connectors for control and signal wiring. Optional builds for hydraulic and servo-electric actuators.

Hardware Features

The AXIS controller bridges the gap between your test stand and our InnControl software. The black box may look simple, but it houses servo control electronics, safety relay, and sensor interfaces. With detailed wiring connection drawings, you can even create your own cabling. The AXIS controller is packed with features, including:

  • Single or dual-axis/servo mode operation.
  • Compact 2U height control drawer, perfect for typical 19” equipment racks or tabletop use.
  • Customer-modifiable actuator configurations.
  • High-resolution digital servo control electronics.
  • Fast update rates for control loop and feedback signals.
  • Selectable control modes for PID loops.
  • Flexibility to work individually or as a phase-locked multi-axis test.
  • Compatibility with Hydraulic, Electro-Mechanical and Pneumatic actuators.
  • Conditioning for LVDT, Load Cells, and String Pots.
  • Hydraulic Off/ Low/ High Pressure Control for each Control Group (for a hydraulic configuration).
  • AXIS Off/ Ready/ Enable Control for each Control Group (for an EM configuration).
  • Standard single-phase 115VAC power outlet compatibility.
  • Emergency Stop pushbutton on the AXIS controller front panel and dedicated connector for additional ESTOP daisy chain links.
  • English language control text and manuals.
