Powertrain Test Benches

The engine test area currently consists of 19 engine test benches (one test bench exclusively for trailer operation) as well as several component test benches. The performance spectrum ranges from a small engine test bench with 12 kW and 30,000 rpm up to a CV engine test bench with 700 kW and 3,700 rpm.

An extensive range of measurement and analysis technology is available for measuring tasks.

The conditioning systems  required for the individual engine test benches for the media – coolant, lubricating oil, fuel, charge air and intake air – were developed by the FKFS and optimized for the respective test bench requirements.  More than approx. 50 conditioning systems are currently available at the FKFS.
