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