Test SLATE

Powerful test measurement software.

Test SLATE is Jacobs' comprehensive, easy-to-use test control and measurement process management application, ideal for testing virtually any product under a variety of environmental and product conditions. It is the ideal application for a wide range of testing environments, including aerodynamic or climatic wind tunnels, component test stands, automotive test facilities, air craft engine test facilities, structural test stands, and manufacturing validation test stands, and more.

Test facilities face a growing need to provide more and better test data and improve testing capabilities in the face of fewer resources.  In the past, that has meant replacing test software at considerable capital expense. Test SLATE offers an affordable, customizable hardware-neutral system.

This Windows®-based, drag-and-drop software does not need specialized training, yet it is powerful enough to control even the most complex test and measurement process, including taking thousands of measurements simultaneously.

Using Test SLATE, you can quickly and intuitively create a custom data acquisition and test automation program without programming skills, while seamlessly integrating old and new hardware – even custom legacy components.

New Features

New for Version 12 of Test SLATE! An API was added to Test SLATE to allow customers to maintain custom plug-ins. This provides the options for customer staff to freely modify custom plug-ins developed by Jacobs as well as to create new custom plug-ins that are compatible with the COTS portion of Test SLATE.
