Testing Facilities

Motor/Controller Test System

Scott Drive has designed and manufactured a custom Test Bed for testing both motors and controllers. The test bed is designed to accommodate two motors up to 450mm in diameter and 900mm in length coupled together through a jaw coupling capable of handling 2000 Nm of torque.

EMI Testing

All switching circuits inherently produce Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). Careful design can minimise conducted/emitted emissions however this can only be verified by testing with a Spectrum Analyser. SDL’s testing facilities include a Spectrum Analyser capable of testing EMI emissions in the 9kHz to 1.5GHz range.

Hybrid/Electric Vehicle Product Testing

In addition to the Motor/Controller Testing Bed Scott Drive also have a converted Honda Prelude which can be used to test many electric vehicle related products such as on-board charging systems and battery management systems.
