Audi equipped with vehicle dynamic testing systems
17 November 2016
On Stand B04 at the Automotive Testing Show Kistler Instruments will be showing an Audi A4 equipped with vehicle dynamics testing systems from Kistler Automotive.
Kistler KiBox To Go
The Kistler KiBox To Go provides a complete combustion analysis system for mobile and test bed applications.
Building on its engine testing and analysis experience, Kistler Instruments developed the KiBox mobile engine combustion analysis system, which integrates with other mobile systems for ECU development and diagnostics.
The KiBox system is compatible with PiezoSmart and TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) sensor identification to simplify set-up and operation. Automatic plausibility checks guarantee prompt measurement availability and high-quality data.
KiTorq for test stand applications
With three new measuring ranges, the Kistler KiTorq measuring flanges now cover 100Nm to 5,000Nm with seven flanges.
The Kistler KiTorq torque sensor system is available with Profibus, Profinet CANopen, Ethercat and EthernetIP interfaces in addition to the voltage, frequency, USB and RS-232 interfaces. These communication options allow the KiTorq system to be integrated directly into the user’s test environment through the Fieldbus interfaces. This saves time during installation and eliminates the cost of additional equipment to convert measured data making the new KiTorq stator cost effective for test stand design, installation and operation in applications for electric motor, internal combustion engine, transmissions, pump and compressor testing.
Vehicle dynamics testing systems
On the track, an Audi A4 equipped with Kistler vehicle data collecting systems including RoaDyn wheel force measuring systems, used by the majority of vehicle manufacturers for Road Load Data collection and vehicle dynamics, the S-Motion non-contact optical tyre-slip sensors, and a measuring steering wheel which provides non-contact measurement of steering moment, steering angle and steering speed for vehicle driving dynamics testing such as the ISO 4138 steady-state circular driving test.
By providing data for CAE tools, realistic service load data can be applied to single suspension components and complete subassemblies during laboratory tests.
Kistler also manufacture a wide range of non-contact optical sensors, GPS, microwave sensors, mechanical sensors, fuel flow meters, data acquisition and evaluation systems and software. This combination of application expertise and equipment provide complete solutions for virtually all vehicle dynamics testing applications.
