Calsonic Kansei Test Facilities

Climatic Wind Tunnel

Our climatic wind tunnel can be used to simulate climatic conditions for vehicle testing, including temperature, humidity and sun-load simulation. Designed to facilitate all of our customers needs, this facility has secure vehicle storage with restricted access to ensure that confidentiality is upheld, a dedicate conference room, vehicle preparation area providing room for work on up to 3 vehicles, fire detection systems which ensure that the facility is continuously monitored for levels or oxygen, carbon monoxide and petroleum vapour and an on-site fuel facility. (Fuels available onsite include ULG 95, pump and diesel)

CLIMATIC WIND TUNNEL – AUTOMATION AND DATA ACQUISTION

Robot driver

Remotely controls driving functions: Ignition, clutch, throttle, manual and automatic gear shift.

Dynamometer interface

Vehicle can be operated through standard pre-programmed drive cycles, e.g. ECE1504 or as otherwise prescribed.

Multi channel data collection

Temperature: 84  type K thermocouples

Voltage: 8 channels 0 to 50V

Pressures: 8 channels 0 to 50V

Frequency: 4 channels

Real time graphic displays

All inputs can be visualized for continuous assessment

Data processing

Data can be provided in several formats including raw and graphical data

Accurate measurement

Measurement devices follow a strict calibration schedule.

 


Vehicle Acoustic Centre

Our temperature controlled quiet room with 2 wheel drive dynamometer can be used for interior and exterior noise testing.

The dynamometer operates in either speed control, force control or ‘road load simulation’ with seamless transition between modes.

The dynamometer may be run from the control room with CCTV and radio monitor or locally in-car of chamber with linked laptop.

Our facility can be used with any mobile data acquisition equipment; alternatively a 12 channel SONY EX with nVision (post processing) can be made available.
