Series 1580 Test Stand Bundle
This testing bundle includes:
- Series 1580 thrust stand
- 1 Optical RPM probe
- 2 Temperature probe
- 1 No-Solder Board
- 2 Enhanced L Brackets
The Series 1580 is a test stand and dynamometer tailored for designers of UAVs, drones and other propulsion systems using brushless motors. It features a USB interface and powerful software for automated control and data-logging.
This tool measures both thrust and torque and is rated for motors and propellers generating thrusts of up to 5 kgf (11 lbf). It has an electrical power measurement limit of 50 V and 55 A, the load measurement has a limited sample rate of 8 Hz.
The Series 1580 test stand includes an electrical RPM sensor, but it may be incompatible with your specific motor/ESC/voltage combination. The Optical RPM probe solves this problem and it has improved accuracy and reliability to enhance your motor speed measurements.
The Temperature probe directly connects to one of the three “Temp” connectors on the Series 1580 circuit. The temperature data is also part of the generated log files. The software can be configured to work in Celsius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin.
- Measures temperatures from -10 °C to +120 °C
- ±0.5 °C accuracy from -10 °C to +85 °C
- 800 ms update rate
The No-Solder board is a simple board that can be fixed directly on your dynamometer, allowing the installation of various types of ESCs and motors (inrunners and outrunners) without any soldering. Three lug connectors on the board can accommodate bullet connectors of up to 6 mm or bare wires.
The Series 1580 is equipped with hinges that can be replaced with the L Brackets. These brackets are designed and tested to increase reliability and accuracy of the torque measurement. They are recommended when you need to test tiny motors and propellers generating less than 0.1 Nm of torque.
