Test Facilities at a Glance:
- Chassis Test Cell: The new HORIBA 4WD Vulcan Chassis Dynamometer with MEXA-ONE emission measurement technology and VETS ONE Automation allows emission measurement of passenger cars, hybrid cars and light-duty vehicles. Testing is carried out in accordance with all international standards. A newly constructed soak room provides space for up to six vehicles.
- E-Motor Test Cell: Particularly important is HORIBA’s TITAN E-Drive test cell for the development of E-Motors and alternative automotive drive lines. It is equipped with a high speed DYNAS3 HS 180 Asynchronous machine, which allows a high starting torque and is capable of very high speeds of up to 16,000 rpm. An integrated DC power supply system provides voltages up to 950 V. The test centre in Oberursel thus offers testing opportunities for conventional and alternative powertrains.
- Engine Test Cell: The HORIBA TITAN engine test stand is equipped with a DYNAS3 HD 350 Asynchronous machine, which delivers up to 350 kW and is capable of engine speeds up to 9,000 rpm. The MEXA-7100 FX for raw gas exhaust emissions stands out with its extremely fast response. In combination with a HORIBA MDLT 1300 Micro Dilution Tunnel, the highly accurate measurement of particulate mass is also possible. The highly dynamic FQ-2100DP fuel flow meter allows precise measurement of fuel consumption with fuel temperature conditioning.
