The transportation sector represents a large share of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions: it is responsible for 22 percent of energy-related GHG emissions worldwide. Environmental policies have therefore regulated the automotive industry for more than 30 years now. In particular the emission rates have to be measured and checked over the whole lifecycle of a majority of vehicles:
- Quantitative emission testing is an obligatory step in engine qualification and in vehicle registration procedures in the worldwide market and for most of the vehicle categories (from lightweight vehicles to the large trucks),
- Periodic inspection & maintenance testing is enforced in a large and growing number of countries around the world. Indeed, tail pipe testing offers another level of diagnostics and verification which sophisticated On Board Diagnostics can hardly reach.
Andros 6500 Series of OEM NDIR sensors have been a long time solution to system integrators for Inspection & Maintenance testing equipment. Our NDIR sensors equip thousands of dynamometer testing stands over the world. They feature high-end measurement specifications for a highly competitive price
The INNOVA Photoacoustic Multi-Gas monitors provide an incremental level of sensitivity and accuracy. Their excellent polyvalence enables their use in multiple testing and monitoring needs met by the R&D teams within the automotive industry.
They are value-added solutions in multiple gas monitoring applications during the engine or vehicle qualification tests. In particular, they differentiate from their ability for direct quantitative measurements of trace pollutants in exhaust or evaporative emission tests.
They have other valuable applications in the automotive industry:
Quantitative leakage testing on mobile A/C equipment to verify compliance with international standards.
- Performance testing on cabin ventilation systems using tracer gas methods.
