Test center and R-Y-D expertise offered in the fields of electric vehicles, turbochargers, engines and acoustics
Summary:
A French high-tech research and test center for the automotive, rail and aerospace industries proposes to assist SMEs, large companies, R-Y-D centers and universities to perform tests and engineering activities under a technical or a research cooperation agreement.
Description:
The French company is an independent test center. Organized into 4 technical activities: engine, NVH (noise, vibration and harshness), turbocharger and electrics, it offers its expertise and provides high-technology test means to the automotive, the rail and the aeronautics industries. The company is recognized at the international level for its know-how in the automotive industry for all types of vehicles including light vehicles, heavy trucks and Formula 1 vehicles. Its expertise also finds applications in the defense industry.

The company offers research and technology cooperation in vehicle and equipment testing, focusing on technological challenges in transport, mobility and environment.

Set on over 7000sqm the R-Y-D and testing center includes:

1/ A Turbocharger Test Centre equipped with 5 independent and secured test cells, each of them fitted with an individual workshop for tests preparation and storage.

- Acquisition system: Dataphysics 10 values, Signal Star

6/ An electrical Test Center:
- Power equipment in controlled climate environment (-40°C to +90°C)
- Impedance spectroscopy measurements (from 10 µHz to 20 kHz)
- RIPPLE simulation
- Instrumentation for module test lines up to 24 temperatures measurements and 24 additional voltage measurements
- Battery Management System (BMS) for module test lines by CAN link or other protocols
- Traceability of cells via Test Explorer (Kratzer Automation) Software

The French research and test center offers to work with the engineering community, industry, academics and R-Y-D laboratories. It proposes to collaborate under a research cooperation agreement on R-Y-D projects, including European projects, or under a technical cooperation agreement to develop prototypes or test protocols.
Advantages and Innovations:
- The French company provides its clients with the most suitable service for their needs: its engineers and technicians support all or part of the work ranging from installation to result analysis, and perform client tests in complete confidentiality.

- The company can also study and adapt its equipment to realize client projects, offering engine control development services (hardware and software) with its partners to build a demonstrator prototype.

- It has experience in NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) Research -Y- Development programs such as REVA, CISIT, etc.

- Constantly attentive to the latest technologies and ensuring a technological watch the company provides its partners with solutions fitted to their new needs.

- Research is focused on reducing CO2 emissions and consumption while maintaining driving pleasure. Furthermore, in order to apply an environmental policy based on energy solutions development, the company had opened an electrical vehicle test center, enabling it to consider and characterize the behavior of batteries used in the automotive, the railway and the aeronautic industries.

- A recognized player in its field, the company is achieving high rankings as a contributor, in various roles, to a number of consortia and excellence and competitiveness clusters. Its teams also benefit from technical exchanges and collaboration with leading European academics.
