Thinking Space Systems has built another Lab Car for delivery to an automotive manufacture; it will be used in a research and development laboratory to test a vehicle's electrical systems.
Many British automotive R&D departments are using Kanya Lab Car test rigs, sometimes known as electrical bucks, to enable electrical engineers to test the electrical components of vehicles without the expense and restrictions associated with using real car bodies.
Building the framework from Kanya aluminium extrusion means the Lab Car can be adapted where necessary to suit different models and equipment. With perforated aluminium sheets cladding the doors, bulkhead, grille, centre console and rear, components can be fixed directly to the Lab Car and moved around to suit the test requirements.
Once populated, the Lab Car houses the seats, dash, wiring harness and accessories such as electric window and sunroof motors, instrumentation, lights, stereo, control units, engine electrics and much more. With plenty of space available underneath, test equipment and computers can be housed to run test routines on the electrical systems. Being mounted on castors means the Lab Car can be moved with ease.
The Lab Car is an inexpensive and versatile test rig that can be designed to the client's requirements and supplied as a complete, assembled, ready-to-use rig or as a flat-packed kit of parts. The usual free consultation meetings and design service offered by Thinking Space Systems means that the Lab Car can be developed into the right test rig for the job.
Contact Thinking Space Systems to discuss the Lab Car or any other projects entailing the use of aluminium framework systems.
