ICS TECH CENTER & CLIMATE TUNNEL

Our State of the Art Research and development facility is dedicated solely to off road, electric vehicle development and testing.

CLIMATE TUNNEL DYNO

The ICS Climate Tunnel Dyno allows us to simulate long driving conditions as well as power runs in a controlled environment. This is critical to make sure each component it’s meeting or exceeding its performance goals.

CLIMATE TUNNEL BLOWER

The ICS Climate Tunnel Blower allows 65+ mph (100km) wind speed at the vehicle. The blower is powered by a 200hp motor and VFD adjustable to 1% granularity. Directional wind veins at the rear of the blower area allow ICS to customize wind stream profiles across the vehicle.

SOLAR LOAD / REFRIGERATION / HUMIDITY

The ability to simulate all environments is key when designing Air Conditioning or heating. The ICS Solar Load System allows a full spectrum lighting array to simulate solar loading on the vehicle from the top, front back and even side locations of the vehicle. Our refrigeration system has the ability to cold soak vehicles below 32 degrees (F) and our humidity system to control test variables as well as defrost testing.

THERMAL IMAGING

Our Thermal Imaging Infrared Camera allows us to visually see the impact of hot and cold air in our systems, allowing us to maximum heat transfer and optimize air flow.

SLA MACHINE

Our top-tier stereolithography 3D printer is invaluable to the design process. By allowing us to grow temperature-ready parts rapidly and efficiently, we can quickly test revisions to optimize efficiency.

SLA CLEAN ROOM

This rooms supports the SLA machine and provides our engineers everything to clean and cure SLA printed parts.

ENVIRONMENTAL TEST CHAMBER

Our E-Spec Environmental Test Chamber with a temperature range of -40°F to 220°F. We endurance test our critical components at extreme temperatures. Plus we test heater output at varying temperatures.

ANECHOIC CHAMBER

Our Microdyne Anechoic Sound Chamber provides a controlled acoustical environment to evaluate noise emissions on our designs.

MACHINE SHOP

For everything other than plastic components, our machine shop has all of the tools needed to fabricate custom metal parts.

CUSTOMER SECURE AREA

The ICS Customer Secure Area has both a dedicated and lockable garage area to work and modify new project vehicles. Additionally this area is equipped with a dedicated customer vehicle lift and tools. Also available to all of our customers are two dedicated offices both in engineering and at the customer secure area.
