As well as gaseous measurements of CO, NOx, NO, NO2, CO2 and O2, the latest systems have a particle number (PN) unit – a clone of the system on trial by the European Commission.
Millbrook has already conducted several emissions measurement projects across light, heavy and off-road vehicles to help shape future technologies and fuels.
Last year (2015), the organisation also announced a further investment in a dual flame ionization detector (FID) to allow simultaneous total hydrocarbon and methane measurement.
“We have ... been developing our test routes and procedures ready for the new regulations, which came into use for information gathering from 1 January 2016, with a proposed introduction date of September 2017,” comments Phil Stones, head of emissions and fuel economy at Millbrook.
“We are proud to be leading the way with the PEMS capabilities we can now offer, and remain committed to providing data and advice, which will help to shape the future of RDE testing and the automotive industry,” he adds.
