Powertrain testing is typically carried out inside a hemi-anechoic chamber to ensure high acoustic absorbency. A typical layout for powertrain test cells is with 2 or 4 independent dynamometers sitting outside of the test chamber, leaving only the engine and gearbox inside the hemi-anechoic room. IAC powertrain chambers allow functional testing of various powertrain and transmission types in a virtual vehicle environment.
The flexible design of IAC powertrain test cells allow the installation of various transmission types:
The aim of this test rig is to perform tests on FWD, RWD or AWD Power Train systems for NVH R&D purposes.
