Created for the Quantum Leap


Our high-dynamic load system helps you test your powertrain with unprecedented quality

As global emissions standards become more stringent, and markets worldwide demand both clean mobility and high performance, electrified powertrains are quickly becoming the industry standard. Mild hybrid, battery electric, fuel cells – these are just some of the electrified technologies that are currently shaping the future of the automotive industry. This increase in powertrain systems continues to push the demand for versatile testing solutions. Relying on our seven decades of automotive development experience, we developed AVL SPECTRA, a powertrain testing solution that you can use for a variety of applications and in environments that demand the highest performance.

Using Quantum Leap Technology

Built with quantum leap technology, AVL SPECTRA Wheel Dyno load units put you ahead of the competition by delivering the highest development efficiency possible. The in-house development of SiC-based power electronics and FPGA controls, combined with our leadership in pioneering new technologies, gives you the confidence that you need in your test results.

Better Control Quality with More Versatility

To cover all of your powertrain testing needs, we’ve made AVL SPECTRA load systems available in several power, torque and inertia classes. It’s also capable of inertia simulation, which gives you even more flexibility in your testing. With our solution, you can future-proof all of your testing applications – no matter drivability, function, RDE, durability or hybrid strategy.

Saving Space, Reducing Cost

As the global market leader in test systems, we designed the SPECTRA family in cutting-edge dimensions and made a compact grid converter with a uniquely small footprint. This helps you do more with less, saving you space and reducing your costs for both brownfield and greenfield projects. We use a design-to-service approach, meaning smart service capabilities have been added to the AVL SPECTRA family.
