The Euro 7 emissions regulations are still under development, and the specific test equipment required to update a test cell for Euro 7 compliance may vary depending on the final version of the standard and its specific requirements. However, based on the current proposals and discussions, the following test equipment is expected to be essential for Euro 7 compliance.
Overall, updating a test cell to comply with Euro 7 emissions regulations can be a challenging process. It is essential to work with experienced professionals who can guide you through the process and ensure that the test cell meets the Euro 7 requirements.

The specific Euro 7 test equipment required for compliance has not been officially defined. What can be gathered from the first draft of the proposal is that the emissions of various pollutants, including nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), ammonia (NH3), and carbon dioxide (CO2) will be measured. Additionally, Euro 7 will require measuring particles to >10nm as opposed to >23nm as it was with Euro 6. Therefore, upgrading or adding exhaust gas analyzers that can measure these pollutants accurately and reliably is likely to be essential.
In addition to the equipment required for compliance with Euro 7 within the lab and test cell, the future regulation will also focus mainly on real-world driving emissions (RDE). The focal point being on the reduction of emissions under real world driving conditions. Hence, the importance of our on-board emissions measurement systems, the OBS-ONE with different configurations to meet the specific requirements.

New PEMS to meet new Euro 7 legislation
HORIBA QCL-IR (Quantum Cascade Laser Infrared Spectroscopy) Portable Emissions Measurement System (PEMS) is designed for on-board measurement in light-, heavy-duty and non-road-mobile-machinery. In response to the emphasis on on-road RDE (Real Driving Emissions) measurement in the Euro 7 legislation proposal.
HORIBA leverages its extensive PEMS expertise to deliver a compact, user-friendly, robust, and precise system capable of measuring up to eight (CO, CO2, NO, NO2, NH3, N2O, HCHO and CH4) components simultaneously. The system incorporates HORIBA's proprietary Infrared Laser Absorption Modulation (IRLAM™) technology. Additionally, it includes a FID for total hydrocarbon measurement.
Furthermore, the Euro 7 proposal will limit the emissions from the vehicle's brake system. In this case, when the brakes are activated, the friction emits airborne particulates that can cause harm. Accordingly, we offer solutions to measure those particulates to ensure adherence to the Euro 7 emission standards.
