Heating test stands: Optimizing the efficiency and performance of heating systems

An important aspect when using heating test stands is the accuracy of the measurement results. It is essential that the test stands are precisely calibrated and comply with current standards and norms. They should also be able to simulate different operating conditions to enable a realistic assessment of the heating systems. Furthermore, it is important that the test stands are safe and comply with all relevant safety regulations to prevent accidents or damage. By using heating test stands, manufacturers can optimize their products, improve energy efficiency and ultimately provide consumers with high quality and effective heating systems. The testing of heating appliances and heating systems is carried out in accordance with various standards. However, it is not only the actual test procedure that is automated on the test bench, but also the evaluation of the results. This is very time-consuming and error-prone to carry out manually.

A comprehensive set of formulas forms the basis for this, which can be easily created with the ProfiSignal software. Measurement technology also requires a high degree of accuracy, as the measurement results obtained serve as the basis for specifying the technical data of the products. For these testing tasks, the ProfiMessage and the Expert Key devices are equally suitable. A special highlight of the ProfiSignal software is the dynamic report. With the ProfiSignal Viewer the report can be opened, printed and sent as a PDF file.

Testing devices for heating system manufacturers

Together with a major manufacturer of heating systems, a catalog of testing devices for various testing tasks has been developed. Depending on the application and requirements, different versions can be selected. Each analog input can be assigned either a thermocouple or a Pt100/Pt1000. All sensors are connected using plug connectors, ensuring a high degree of flexibility and fast set-up. The standard-compliant test sequences have been created with ProfiSignal Klicks software by Delphin application development. A maintenance package ensures that all test applications are always kept up to date and that the equipment can also be used for future PC generations and operating systems.
