Real Time's ARTIC-2 Dynamometer Control System is a more compact version of the ARTIC-1. Many of the functions of the ARTIC-1's I/O Buffer Box are incorporated into a single custom board inside the ARTIC-2 Computer. An Adobe Acrobat PDF file describing the ARTIC-2 system can be downloaded by clicking here.
The ARTIC-2 Computer can be placed on a desktop or installed in a rack. The ARTIC-2 can be operated locally using its own keyboard and monitor, or can be operated remotely from the customer's host computer.
The connectors on the back of the ARTIC-2 are for the cables to the dynamometer, to the power converter, and to the customer.
The software on the ARTIC-2 is intentionally very similar to that on the ARTIC-1. It is menu-driven and very user-friendly.
