Eliminating error

Torque Accuracy Check

Avoid inefficient and time-consuming conflicts

For the measurement and optimization of driveability characteristics, and to support engine efficiency and emission reduction, accurate torque delivery from torque generators is vital. Currently, however, most torque measurement sensors are expensive, error-prone and take time to set up. This means the measurement of torque deviation can be unreliable.

Accurate, Reliable, Cost-Effective

To tackle this challenge, at AVL we have developed a powerful approach that is fast, reliable and cost-effective. Our fully automated testing, analysis and report methodology ensures torque accuracy is faster and more affordable than other methods.

Fully automated testing guarantees reproducibility of results which, combined with a 90 % reduction of installation costs and effort, drives budget savings. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) reductions between 50 % and 80 % are realistically possible.

Saving Time, Driving Accuracy

Setup time is just a few days instead of the more familiar 9 to 15 weeks per vehicle. These delays are generally due to long delivery times for flex plate or drive shaft adaptation. Our approach eliminates these setbacks.

Furthermore, the Torque Accuracy Check reduces the risk of instrumentation failure due to the elimination of the sensitive torque flange strain gauge. This drives transmission shift quality and robustness in all driving conditions.

Flexibility of Testing Environments

Applicable and reproducible in a wide variety of testing environments, our system can be tailored to your specific needs. From test track to chassis dyno, powertrain testbed or powerpack testbed, it can be used with conventional powertrains or for e-motor or e-power analysis.

The Added Value

Our Torque Accuracy Check promotes efficient testing and avoids inefficient and time-consuming conflicts between engine, e-motor and transmission departments. As part of an integrated development workflow it delivers fast, efficient and accurate analysis of the accuracy of the interface between the torque source and transmission.
