Sakor Technologies to exhibit engine, hybrid vehicle, and battery testing technologies at Automotive Testing Expo 2014 North America

Sakor Technologies, a leading developer of high-performance dynamometer systems, has announced that it will be exhibiting at the Automotive Testing Expo 2014 North America from October 28-30 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. Sakor will be highlighting many of its innovative technologies at booth #13004, including hybrid and electric vehicle testing, high-voltage battery testing and simulation, and the smallest AC regenerative engine dynamometer available in the industry. Technical representatives from Sakor will be present at the booth to offer expertise and answer questions about their products for show attendees.

Sakor, which is one of the industry’s leaders in developing testing technology for hybrid and electric vehicles, has extensive experience in both electric motor and generator testing as well as engine and powertrain testing. The DynoLAB Test Cell Control System can perform a wide variety of road load profiles and simulations, and is designed for testing to all international standards, including existing and proposed EPA, CARB, and Euro standards.

The High Voltage Battery Simulator/Testing System is ideal for customers conducting research and development, performance evaluation, and durability testing of high voltage DC power systems. It can be used for testing high-voltage batteries as well as simulating high-voltage batteries while testing hybrid vehicle drivelines and inverter systems. The High Voltage Battery Test System is fully line regenerative, resulting in a very power efficient unit, minimizing electricity usage, lowering operating costs, and providing an extremely environmentally friendly profile.

The new Small Engine AC Motoring Dynamometer is the smallest available on the market today. It is further differentiated by its ultra-low inertia properties, and the ability to convert easily between horizontal and vertical orientations, accommodating either shaft orientation.
The Small Engine Dynamometer was developed specifically to meet the needs of small engine manufacturers who must now comply with engine testing procedures required by emission standards contained in 40 CFR Part 1065. This innovative machine can test both steady state and transient emissions cycles, and allows users to avoid the issues associated with larger dynamometers, such as breaking of driveshafts or couplings.

Sakor’s alternative energy testing systems work with a variety of alternative energy technologies, including turbines and generators powered by wind and tidal energy, and also fuel cells.

Held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan on October 28, 29 and 30, the twelfth Automotive Testing Expo North America will enable visitors to see the very latest technologies and services that are designed to ensure that the highest standards are met in terms of product quality, reliability, durability and safety. Over 270 exhibiting companies will be out to demonstrate that their products are able to help with the ultimate aim of eliminating recalls.

In addition, the Automotive Testing Expo North America will once again be co-located with Engine Expo North America, following on from the latter’s hugely successful launch. Find more details of the shows at www.testing-expo.com/usa and www.engine-expo.com/usa.
