Axle Testing

Revolutionary Engineering (RE) Axle Test Systems provide our customers with a streamlined method for testing their axles using a single versatile test system. This system incorporates the latest technological advancements in sensor, control, and power electronics while relying on an experienced design. Our test systems come with AC input and output dynamometers that move axially to accommodate a variety of axle sizes. This allows the same drive shafts to be used for multiple axle designs....

Hybrid Vehicle PEC Charger System

The Challenge

Our customer requires a Power Electronics Carrier (PEC) battery charger unit. A PEC is part of a vehicle hybrid system. A Hybrid vehicle is engineered to be more fuel efficient than a conventional combustion vehicle. Hybrid systems are designed to provide fuel savings during acceleration and braking. Upon initial acceleration, the electric motor uses the power stored in the battery to assist the move of the vehicle. When the vehicle comes to a stop, the electric motor helps...

Torque converter and lockup clutch testing using REPS

The Challenge

Our customer requires a real-time data acquisition and control system for their 200 HP dynamometer. The dynamometer is required to simulate an engine from dead stop to 30 mph, but with more stability, precision and high speed control. The controller must provide flexibility, so that control modes and test profiles can be created or modified by the operator. It must interface with the customer’s global database at the end of the test to store the collected data. This...
