Measurement and control system is main section of friction & wear testing machines. But current measurement and control systems have low versatility and high design cost. To solve these problems, this paper designed an Ethernet-based measurement and control system, which can be used in most types of friction & wear testing machines with a few modifications of programs. The DSP processor and touch screen system were successfully integrated into the presented measurement and control system. The functions and implementation processes of each module were introduced in detail, and a reconfigurable software system was designed according to ideas of virtual instruments theory.
