Fast but reliable combustion results as basis for engine development, calibration and optimization decisions

These days, legislation acts as a major driving force on the automotive market and brings about current development needs and trends.

Effective drive systems with the lowest emissions possible at moderate costs will be in high demand for all engines sizes. At the same time, the market is changing rapidly as a result of new manufacturers of engines/models appearing on the market and intensifying the competitive pressure on all OEMs.

All these circumstances lead to a trend of radically shortened development cycles in general. Due to peripheral conditions, combustion will increasingly become the central focus of tests because future engine maps, for example, will incorporate several combustion concepts. Therefore, all test engineers, calibration engineers and development engineers as well as test-field managers are facing increasing complexity.

Engineers are facing new challenges again since they increasingly need stronger interaction and correlation between combustion analysis results in engine automation and control systems more quickly than ever before.

Complete Measuring Chain for Combustion Analysis

SINGLE CYLINDER RESEARCH ENGINES and COMPACT TEST BED
For development of engines, components, alternative fuels and lubes; with transparent access into the combustion chamber. Compact test bed solution and peripherals.

PRESSURE SENSORS FOR COMBUSTION ANALYSIS
Sensors for measuring cylinder pressures, pressures of the intake and exhaust pipes as well as in high pressure injection lines.

CRANK ANGLE ENCODER OF 365-SERIES
Angle Encoders 365C/X/R are highly accurate optical pickups for angle-based indicating measurements and torsional analyses on IC-engines.

CRANK ANGLE AND PULSE CONDITIONING
Engine indicating requires not only accurate pressure signals, but also accurate crank angle information: Absolute piston position, exact injection or ignition timings are necessary for detailed combustion analysis.

INDICATING AMPLIFIERS
Modular amplifiers for high-end conditioning of cylinder pressure, low pressure, displacement or timing signals for the purpose of combustion analysis.

ALL IN ONE INDICATING SYSTEMS
Compact indicating systems designed for mobile combustion development and demanding development tasks

MODULAR INDICATING SYSTEMS
Flexible data acquisition systems designed for combustion development of all engine power classes

AVL INDICOM™ - Advanced Combustion Analysis can be that easy
IndiCom is a software in the field of combustion analysis that combines the control of data acquisition with professional data evaluation for clear graphical presentation.

AVL GCA™ - Gas exchange and Combustion Analysis
AVL GCA is a high sophisticated tool for thermodynamic analysis of IC-engines. It is both a “virtual sensor” and a design tool for the whole process.

OPTICAL COMBUSTION ANALYSES: VISIOLUTION TECHLOLOGY
With optical measuring methods, deep insight into complex processes of fuel mixture and combustion beyond the findings of indicating can be achieved.

OTHER SENSORS: TDC- & TURBO SPEED- & LIFT- SENSOR
Sensors for exact determination of top dead center (TDC), for acquisition of charger's speed and for determination of valve timing and needle lift movement.

AVL EPOS™ – OPEN ENGINE CONDITION ANALYSIS SYSTEM
A scalable monitoring system for large-bore engines in operation.

AVL CONCERTO™ - The easiest way to turn your data into meaningful information
CONCERTO is a generic data post processing tool focusing on quick and intuitive signal analysis, validation, correlation and reporting, for any kind of acquired data.

"Due to the combined use of indicating and visual methods I now understand the processes inside the combustion chamber." (customer statement)
