Companies offering drivetrain testing services need to be flexible. With potential customers ranging from suppliers of specialist components for the powertrain or transmission, right up to the world’s leading car manufacturers, they need adaptable test solutions that can be quickly broken down and rebuilt to meet the needs of each customer. This was the type of test solution required by ATESTEO of Kassel, Germany to equip its automotive test beds.
The manufacturers of electric vehicles (EVs) are constantly pushing the boundaries of performance. Whether in racing cars or the everyday vehicles that consumers rely on, EV technology needs to demonstrate high efficiency, maximum range between charges, reliability and high dynamic performance.
By showing that EVs can offer the same advantages and specification to drivers that conventional vehicles can, manufacturers can secure the future of a technology that is a major building block of a more sustainable society. To instil confidence in consumers, manufacturers need the assistance of specialist companies who can help them test and refine the designs of electric motors, drivetrains, batteries and control systems.
Such a company is Intertek. At its EV Testing Centre of Excellence in Milton Keynes, UK, Intertek plays a crucial role in the industry’s efforts to develop new generations of technology, for road going vehicles and for Formula E racing cars.
Recently the award winning WT5000 Precision Power Analyzer received its first major update to its options and functions. This allows the user to capture raw waveform data simultaneously with the numeric measurement data. Both the raw data and numeric data can be sent directly to the test bench software.
