CHASSIS VEHICLE TESTING: ELEVATING STANDARDS AND EXPERTISE

Advancing Vehicle Testing through Chassis Dynamometer Innovation

Because it is such a vital part of vehicle testing, chassis dynamometer testing is an indispensable facet of our portfolio. Approval testing requirements are frequently increasing along with multi-axle vehicle instrumentation, upgrading from 2WD or installing new 4WD or AWD systems. In response to this constant industry evolution, vehicle manufacturers committed to chassis dynamometer testing have an edge over the competition across performance, emission and diagnostic to empower ongoing Research and Development (R&D) and quality control.

From the ground-up design, construction, and installation of larger dynamometer pits to the intricate overhaul of electrical infrastructure, we are at the forefront of adapting testing facilities to the demands of modern vehicle evaluation. While the chassis dynamometer is central to this process, our clients benefit from our primary commitment to systems integration, ensuring all components work seamlessly together with your goals in mind. This encompasses the design and engineering aspects and all related systems and facility infrastructure, or even the commissioning of entirely new test facilities featuring multiple state-of-the-art vehicle chassis systems.

Wide-Ranging Experience at Your Fingertips

Our team has experience with the design, equipment selection, installation, startup, and commissioning of chassis vehicle test chambers, having completed several turnkey test chambers using our in-house mechanical, electrical, and controls engineers. The projects included new construction design and build and retrofit work of existing test facilities.

In addition to purchasing, ACS has led the design and fabrication of wind simulation systems. Based on our customers’ and end-users’ requirements, our team researches, specifies, purchases, and manages the installation of road speed fans. Our design work incorporates complete Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, fan specification, design and fabrication of nozzles and custom components, and installation and commissioning of these systems.

We cater to diverse needs, including:

  • Altitude
  • Calibration
  • Certification
  • Climatic
  • Durability/range evaluation
  • Electrification
  • Emissions
  • Hybrid and full Electric Vehicle (EV) testing
  • Inverter testing
  • Production verification
