The powertrain lab at NATRAX consists of a Vehicle test cell with a 4×4 chassis dyno with an emission measurement system. The lab is used for benchmarking, engine performance and engine deterioration tests. The test setup can also be used for Research and Development as the vehicle’s are run on different tests tracks while testing for endurance. The lab is capable for homologation along with R&D complimenting the test tracks at NATRAX. The facility is capable of testing upto EURO V and BS IV. The lab is currently under upgradation to BS VI.
Vehicle Test Cell (Chassis Dynamometer)
The 4×4 chassis dyno at NATRAX is from M/s AVL systems. Also known as rolling road, the chassis dyno is capable of real road load conditions on test vehicles. The dyno can accommodate vehicles upto 4,500 kg. The dyno can test vehicles with 2WD and 4WD capability and front/ rear wheel driven vehicles.
Vehicle Test Cell (Emission Analyzer)
