Change visitor typeROTOTEST VPA-RX Chassis Dynamometer - Areas of Usage
Areas of ROTOTEST VPA-RX chassis dynamometers usage include:

Engine
  • Calibration
  • Performance assessment - powertrain performance graphs at steady state and during steady rate (defined acceleration)
  • Function check
  • Evaluation of auxillaries
  • Measurement of exhaust emissions, fuel consumption, etc
General
  • Test of complete vehicles
  • Quality assurance (during R&D project, in production, before critical media launches)
  • Test chambers, EMC, Acoustic, Climate, Wind tunnels, etc
  • Mileage accumulation
  • Education
  • Benchmarking
  • Mobile laboratory
  • High speed testing (400+ km/h)
  • Running in of powertrains
  • Controlled warm up before race start
  • Event and demonstrations (of fuels, tuning equipments, etc)
Transmission
  • Determination of transmission losses
  • Slip in converters
  • Characteristics of differential brakes, viscous couplings, CV-transmissions, etc
NVH
  • Drive train analyses (e.g. drive shafts, propeller shafts, CV joints, etc)
  • Exhaust system analyses
  • General noise testing couplings, CV transmissions, etc.
