Engineering, Testing, & Analysis
Hapeman can perform an wide array of in-house product and environmental testing, or if the situation calls for it, design a custom solution to meet your needs!
For over 20 years, we have produced countless automated tests and control stations for a variety of applications, allowing projects to be both efficient and environmentally-friendly.
Intelimation®, a SCADA design and our flagship software, is an automation and testing data acquisition suite.
Our program enables the user to connect to a wide array of data acquisition devices, and displays live data in a user-friendly manner. Methods for displaying data include: labels, buttons, graphs, grids, lights, switches, sliders, as well as many others. Data can be recorded in various ways, and statistical analysis can be run on said data at time of recording or given an
Intelimation® recording file after the testing is complete. Layers of programming and scripting then lie on top of the data acquisition layer and allow more comprehensive control and automation of the entire DAQ system. This allows for scripting control based on time, value, stabilization, PID control, range limits, and many other forms of metering.
Troubleshooting & Maintenance
Hapeman provides reverse engineering! In many cases, an old print was not updated or cannot be located. We can reverse-engineer production equipment or test stations, improving your existing operation. We also offer machine retrofitting for out-of-date and obsolete controls - after evaluating your machine, we can fix old controls or retrofit new ones.
We not only offer service and support for your existing equipment – we are also experts at engineering new equipment!
With decades of combined problem-solving experience, we can repair or re-engineer faulty parts and software. We can identify an unknown problem, and we can engineer an efficient and creative solution!

AC Traction Motor Field Tester
AC traction motors in standard production and UX production must be functionally tested to ensure proper operation. The AC Field Tester spins up the motor for testing. Compatible motors currently include GE GEB13 traction motors, however, our system can be tailored to suit your specific motor needs.
Hapeman Electronics' Battery Conditioner is the 22nd century solution to 21st century rail yard problems! The HEBC is an all-in-one unit for charging, testing, and desulfating locomotive batteries. With its easy-to-use interface, quick and accurate test results, high battery recovery rate, and durable design, the Hapeman Electronics Battery Conditioner will increase your productivity and reduce your maintenance costs.
The Locomotive Battery Load Tester is used to test locomotive battery health without removing the batteries or going through a deep cycle. The batteries are subjected up to a 1500 amp load test for 15 seconds, and the battery voltages are shown on large digital displays. Built with a rugged metal enclosure and durable tires, this tester is mobile and can withstand heavy wear and tear.
Size: ~28″W X 50″H X 33″D Displays: digital, sunlight visible
Weight: 350 lbs Controls: push-button
Input Power: 120VAC 5A Construction: solid caster wheels, metal enclosure
Cable Length: 20 ft
Locomotive Fuel Pump Test
Locomotive fuel pumps have a limited life and may present warning signs before they fail. This setup was created to cycle a pump until it begins to show sign of failure and its mechanical life is exceeded. Once a pattern has been established, we can detect an imminent failure and repair it before it causes a downtime incident. Our fuel pump test is designed with fixtures with all the necessary components that will meet or exceed the life of the pump itself.
Equipment Used: National Instruments DAQ, Pressure Transducers
A plenum chamber is the ideal solution for measuring the airflow of a blower, or for creating a curve. Hapeman’s plenum features an integrated power meter, and has the capability to measure a wide variety of pressures and temperatures. This data acquisition unit can record data for any type of test required.
Equipment Used: Agilent 34970, Opto 22, National Instruments DAQ, Voltech Power Analyzer, Pressure Transducers, GE Fanuc PLC, Thermocouples, Airpax RPM meter
The Hapeman TDC Tester is designed for use on GE Locomotive diesel engines to verify correct engine timing. The lightweight, self-contained, portable kit only requires a charged computer battery (or access to 110V 60Hz power) and a fresh 9V battery to operate in even the most remote locations. Years of research and data collection have gone into developing the software used in this tester to ensure the results are accurate. Verification of engine TDC is critical to engine fuel consumption and emissions performance.
The electronic control system of locomotive engines use a timing gear and sensors to know the position of the crankshaft. This system controls the fuel injection timing and duration in order to control the diesel engine. In order to maximize fuel economy and minimize emissions, precise injection timing is critical. During the engine assembly process, the timing gear engine sensors need to be precisely synchronized to the crank shaft. The Hapeman Electronics tramming system automatically places the crankshaft at Top Dead Center so that the engine sensors and the timing gear are positioned correctly. This is a custom engineered product with different models to tram all GE transportation electronically fuel-injected locomotive engines.
Wind Turbine Gearbox
This gear unit was designed specifically for a 1.5 Megawatt generator which, under accelerated loads, exceeded 900,000 lb. ft. of torque with transient loads exceeding 1,900,000 lb. ft. of torque. This test employs re-circulated power so that the total realized energy cost was less than 15% of the overall power. Customer inverters and drive motors are used to deliver the mechanical load to the gear units.
We implement the use of re-circulating power to minimize operating costs. In order to minimize the installation cost, we suggest customers use their own inverters and drive motors. Our custom hexadecimal drivers were developed to interface with customers’ inverter system controller.
