AVL ROADSIM EMC TRUCK™ Chassis Dynamometer

It is designed for light trucks and trucks in applications like EMC analysis.

AVL Approach

The cradle mounted DC motors are arranged beside the rollers. The whole chassis dynamometer can be rotated to align the vehicle to e.g. the electromagnetic field. The road load simulation uses the mechanical base inertia together with electrical inertia simulation

Benefits at a Glance

  • Extreme low electromagnetic emissions chassis dynamometer
  • Reliable EMC optimized components ensure immunity to interference
  • Proven record of numerous installations worldwide (> 25 years experience)
  • Excellent working relationship with all major chamber suppliers
  • Local service capability with short response time

Measuring Principle

Tractive force
The tractive force is measured by a strain gauge sensor supporting the cradle mounted motor.

The speed is measured by an incremental encoder with two 90° shifted tracks with detection of the direction of rotation.
