The Development and Research of Welding Power Source Testing Devices Based on ARM Controller
The performance of arc welding power source is an important factor that affecting the use safe and welding quality, so a special equipment for the factory testing is required. The test equipment for arc welding power supply is master-slave structure, and includes hardware and software system. Hardware system complete data acquisition and information display, controlled by embedded micro-controller. The software system complete a graphical user interface programs and collection procedures, developed in the embedded Linux environment. The device enables the automated testing of the welding power source, such as loading, data transmission, reflecting a good man-machine interactivity. The system will be applied to the factory inspection of welding power source, to assess its the quality and performance through tested parameters.
