/ 165 MOBILE EXHAUST MEASUREMENT SYSTEM AVL AMA i60 Remote/Stand-Alone-Units The AMA i60 Remote and Stand-Alone-Units have been designed to serve as an extension to an existing AMA i60 analyzer bench (Remote Unit) or as a separate small analyzer bench (Stand Alone Unit). The Remote Unit is controlled by the AMA i60, the Stand-Alone Unit by the iGEM AMA bench control software on a separate computer. MEASUREMENT PRINCIPLE Depending on the application, various analyzer types can be used with the AMA i60 Remote/Stand-Alone Unit. Integrated pumps draw in the measurement gas from the sample point. Heated lines and pre-filters or sample point selection units are used in the vicinity of the sample point. The analysis of the sample gas is performed using high-end gas analyzers – FID for THC and CH4, CLD for NO/NOx, IRD for CO, CO2, QCL (quantum cascade laser) for N2O as well as an LDD (laser diode detector) for NH3 measurements and a UVD analyzer for SO2 measurements. APPLICATION The AMA i60 Remote/Stand-Alone exhaust measurement system is available in the folllowing variations: • For THC (and CH4) and/or NO /NOx measurements • For CO, CO2 and N2O (IRD) measurements • For NH3 combined with NO/NOx or N2O measurements • For N2O measurements with a QCL analyzer • For SO2 (UVD) measurements • For measurements of oxygenated components using an Innova analyzer The system is ideally suited for the development and certification of combustion engines in accordance with emissions regulations worldwide, as well as SCR exhaust aftertreatment systems in accordance with European heavy-duty regulations. BENEFITS AT A GLANCE • Compact mobile unit which is easy to move around and to use at different sampling points • Allows for short sample transfer lines resulting in fast response with high accuracy • Optimized packages for applications like heated THC/NOx measurements or EGR-CO2 determination or SCR ammonia measurements, SHED THC or EPA greenhouse gas (GHG) measurements • Substantially reduced setup time and total cost of ownership thanks to the use of proven i60 technology, the well-known iGEM AMA user interface and diagnosis functions The iGEM AMA bench control software allows for easy and intuitive operation of the AMA i60 Remote/Stand Alone Unit. It provides essential information on the status of an integrated gas analyzer.
