VULCAN - Vehicle Diagnostics

Chassis Dynamometer

HORIBA continues to accumulate substantial knowledge in designing and manufacturing high-quality chassis dynamometers for the automotive industry in compliance with existing and forthcoming emission standards. Continuous optimization and improvement of the tried-and-tested design have led to the latest generation of VULCAN dynamometers. While creating this new range of chassis dynamometers, the HORIBA team re-examined fundamental design elements that are crucial to the performance demanded by our users. The digital force and speed measurement designs are characterized by their high accuracy and repeatability. Automated quality checks and product diagnostics additionally contribute to the performance of the overall system.

To advance the quality of the measurement results, HORIBA has improved calibration and measurement accuracy as well as the roller dimensions, enabling it to comply with current and future vehicle demands. A standard calibration device using a two-arm design for full force calibration through the zero point assures easy and reliable calibration.
