Test and Validate


More than 300 installations globally and 20 years' experience in development and design of transmission, drivetrain and powertrain testbeds as well as test facilities.

The increasing complexity of modern powertrains is placing increasing demands on the Instrumentation and Test Systems. Parallel development activities of key powertrain components (combustion engine, hybrid engine, transmission, etc.) require transmission and drivetrain testing activities at the earliest possible stage. To ensure this, the Test System must precisely emulate the real engine. For testing transmissions and drivetrains various system solutions are requested conducting the testing tasks with consistency between all the different Systems.
