AVL FuelTron™ M.O.V.E

Driving accuracy

Fuel consumption measuring system for the heavy-duty and non-road mobile machinery industry.

FuelTron M.O.V.E

An increase in technical complexity coupled with stricter environmental and legal requirements makes the development of modern vehicles a challenge. Manufacturers in the heavy-duty and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) industry are being forced to increasingly focus on topics such as CO2 reduction, fuel economy optimization and real-life fuel consumption.
With AVL FuelTron™ M.O.V.E we have developed the next generation of onboard fuel consumption measuring systems. 

Increasing technical complexity combined with more stringent environmental and legislative requirements make modern vehicle development a challenge for manufacturers. The focus of manufacturers in the heavy duty and NRMM industry is increasingly being placed on challenges such CO2 reduction, optimization of fuel economy, and real-life fuel consumption. OEMs are beginning to be limited in their testing efforts when developing powertrains and vehicles and are therefore dependent on measurement technology that can cover the maximum variety of applications. In addition, there is a growing importance in being able to test vehicles under real operating conditions and yet independently of environmental conditions, and also measure the smallest quantities of fuel with the minimum of integration effort.

FuelTron M.O.V.E

The Next Generation in Onboard Fuel Consumption Measuring Systems

AVL FuelTron™ M.O.V.E is the next generation of fuel consumption measuring systems that sets new standards enabling onboard fuel consumption measurement to be used in a variety of use cases, such as chassis dynamometer applications, on/off road testing and climate chamber applications.
The optimized and unique hydraulic layout in combination with the AVL PLUtron™ flow meter allows bi-directional flow measurements to be conducted without influencing vehicle operation. This technology unlocks a range of features and functionality such as the possibility of testing under harsh environmental conditions and measuring even the smallest amount of fuel consumption with minimal integration effort. 

  • Measurement uncertainty of ≤ 0.1 % of reading at 100 Hz data rate and unique sensor resolution (with PLUtron ADVANCED inside)
  • Optimized hydraulic layout — bi-directional measurement and UUT protection capabilities
  • Direct mass flow output
  • Unique robustness and stability even under rough environmental conditions thanks to rugged design and long-term stable calibration
  • Minimized footprint and plug-and-play usability
