A Guide to Future-Proofing Your Light-Duty Test Cell


Planning to upgrade your light-duty powertrain or chassis test cell? There is a lot to consider. With new technologies and impending regulation changes, it has become difficult to ensure that your investment choices will remain relevant, adapt as energy sources pivot, and provide the performance and flexibility needed as customer preferences evolve. The choices you make today can either help your team and overall organization maintain a strong position for the long term or set you back.

Flexibility and efficiency are key to a future-focused test cell that supports a growing range of technology and propulsion methods. Our new guide offers six key questions to ask yourself as you plan. How you answer these questions will determine your success when facing new challenges such as Euro 7 regulations, adding tools to optimize vehicle energy management, and the integration of connected and autonomous vehicle testing.

Advanced performance requirements for EVs and EV-related safety risk mitigation are a substantial consideration for changing test environments. For manufacturers and developers designing battery packs, critical engineering measurements such as temperature, pressure, flow, strain, and vibration can be difficult to gather in a high voltage environment. This presents potential shock hazards and equipment damage risks. Effective planning and design will help optimize these technologies and reduce risk.

We are here to help you design a flexible test environment, make the most of new technologies, and keep you and your organization in a strong position going forward. Download our new guide to learn more.
