Cost effective

COST EFFECTIVENESS is the relation between monetary inputs and the desired outcome. While the acquirement of a test system is generally regarded as a substantial investment, the ROTOTEST® dynamometers offer much more cost-effective solutions than what are possible with traditional test systems. Incorporating unique qualities such as lower initial investment, low requirement on infrastructure, great flexibility and unparalleled productivity ensures that an optimum result can be achieved to less expenditure.

Small investment

  • Low purchase price for a complete turnkey automotive test system compared to other professional test systems.
  • Insignificant installation costs compared to other professional test systems thanks to low requirements on infrastructure.
  • The ROTOTEST® VPA-RX™ models only require normal household electrical power supply.
  • Vehicle head wind is generated by the dynamometer, which eliminates the need for heavy electrical installation for vehicle cooling in almost every application.
  • All ROTOTEST® dynamometers have easy software integration with other automotive test systems.
Cost effectiveness
The ROTOTEST® Hurricane Cooling Unit™ creates headwind for the test vehicle by recycling energy. Power absorbed by the dynamometers is converted into airflow, at no additional cost. The motoring power of a pair of HCUs is equivalent to a 330 hp electrical motor.








One system, many applications

  • The ROTOTEST® VPA-RX™ dynamometer is a universal test system, for use in numerous applications within the automotive powertrain testing field.
  • Countless combination possibilities, 2WD, 4WD, 6WD, ROTOTEST® VPA-RX™ with ROTOTEST® Energy™ and/or ROTOTEST® Drive™.
  • The ROTOTEST® VPA-RX™ is a small, but powerful dynamometer system completely on wheels, which is easily transported by a light truck or airfreight. The dynamometer system is effortlessly moved between test facilities or laboratories and field applications.
  • A 4WD system can be used as two independent 2WD systems to double the availability.

Low usage costs

  • Only one operator is needed, in many cases only the test engineer.
  • An automotive test system with exceptional productivity thanks to functional design and software features. Simply invented for maximum productivity.
