AVL ROADSIM 25" INLINE TRIKE ™ Chassis Dynamometer

AVL ROADSIM 25" INLINE TRIKE™ Chassis Dynamometer is designed for testing mopeds, motorcycles, three-wheelers and ATVs in applications like emission analysis.

AVL Approach

The cradled AC motor is arranged next to a fixed roller, followed by an additional coupleable roller. It is designed for ideal road load simulation of vehicles. The mass simulation is realized mechanically by the additional roller and electrically by the AC motor.


Benefits at a Glance

  • Reduced tire losses due to suitable roller diameter
  • Simple and fast on-site assembly
  • Highly-precise and proven road load simulation
  • Aluminum covering for robust testing under several environmental conditions

Measuring Principle

Tractive force
The tractive force is measured by a strain gauge sensor supporting the cradle mounted motor.

Speed
The speed is measured by an incremental encoder with two 90° shifted tracks with detection of the direction of rotation.
