Vehicle Electrification Test Cell Solutions

Increasing market demand and environmental concerns are leading to a surge of electrified powertrains. Traditional automotive, on-highway commercial vehicle, and off-highway machinery OEMs, their tier suppliers and new-to-this-market startups are working at a feverish pace to bring new technologies to market.

The ACS team has the experience and capability to help define your needs, engineer and design systems, and deliver a complete turnkey solution for testing batteries, inverters, and electric propulsion components related to EVs (Electric Vehicles). We understand the challenges associated with bringing battery and electric testing into traditional engine and powertrain development test labs and have also worked with clients interested in a containerized or modular enclosure approach to test cells.

We will work with your team to define and implement electrification testing solutions that meet your requirements. Our experience ranges from stand-alone component test stands to complete turnkey construction projects.
