Dynamic and static test cells


Overall view of the cells. The two test cells are independent, sound-proofed and equipped with:

  • air exchange system (2 vol/min);
  • temperature, pressure and humidity monitoring;
  • CO/ CO2 detector;
  • fuel supply system: gasoline, diesel and hydrogen;
  • external fuel tanks;
  • remote control and acquisition systems.
