EFT Mobility Testing Capabilities
At EFT Mobility we develop turn-key electric powertrain solutions for our customers. This includes all the relevant steps from Powertrain System Architecture over System Design to final Integration and Validation. Specifically, the Integration and Validation phase requires significant infrastructure and tools. In order to master this phase of development, EFT Mobility has formed strategic partnerships and has undertaken significant investments.
HC-Concepts is a company which specialises in engine development. Not only are they a great partner regarding all mechanical design aspects of our powertrain, but they also provide a huge variety of expertise, tools and facilities which are required for the integration and validation process.
HC-Concepts has several advanced CNC-Machines in-house. This allows us to quickly and precisely mill any metal components with a minimal lead time. A crucial element for the development of required structural parts of our powertrain systems.
Printing complex stainless steel or aluminum components is another advantage, which allows us to move very quickly when it comes to the manufacturing of metal components. After being completed on the Metal 3D Printer, parts receive their final finish on the CNC machine.
HC-Concepts has three highly advanced Metal 3D Printers, which are leveraged by EFT Mobility.
System Test Centers
For the system validation of electric powertrains, HC-Concepts has built out test centers which EFT Mobility leverages. These include the required infrastructure, noise protection, ventilation system, fire protection, and control centers to safely test and operate powertrain systems.
Our In House Infrastructure
EFT Mobility has conducted strategic investments in critical infrastructure for our development.
High Voltage Bi-Directional Loads
In order to test the functionality of electric powertrains under full load, EFT Mobiliy invested in High Power Bi-Directional DC Loads. These loads allow us to feed our powertrain systems with the required power and also put output power back into the grid. EFT Mobility owns loads that allow testing systems of up to 1000V and with a power of up to 50kW.
We additionally invested in the required infrastructure and training to safely operate HV-Systems. Six people from our team have received official HV training and are licensed to develop and even work on live HV systems.
Electronic Design Lab
We built an expansive Electronic Design Lab, which includes everything from reflow ovens for rapid assembly of PCBs, oscilloscopes and measurement devices to bring up our PCBs and electronic loads to test them. This allows us to move quickly on our electronic design and verify and validate all our designs in-house.
Electric Motor Testing
In order to characterize our electric motors with the highest precision, we have formed partnerships with leading universities from Munich. These allow us to access labs with high-precision dynamometers. We can precisely characterize the torque response, efficiency, and power limits of our electric motors.
EFT Mobility has built out significant capabilities to fully develop, integrate, and validate turn-key electric powertrain systems. Therefore, EFT Mobility is able to move fast and to deliver on complex multi-disciplinary projects. Capabilities which our customers highly appreciate.
