  • Latest measurement technology for exhaust emissions, smoke and particles (NOx, NO, NH3, SO2, CH2O, HC, CH4, CO, CO2, O2)
  • Partial flow dilution system for particulate matter
  • Measurement technology that is Particulate Measurement Program (PMP)-compliant for the particle count
  • Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysers for non-limited exhaust components
  • 16-channel combustion pressure fluctuation monitoring and analysis system
  • Blackening rate measuring device / Opacimeter
  • Fuel consumption measurement and conditioning
  • Air mass measurement and conditioning
  • Vibration measurement and analysis system
  • Fuel injection pump test stands
