In-Vehicle Emissions Testing

BOB-1000FT, a multi-component gas analyzer based on FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed) technology, allows for highly accurate emissions testing. The BOB-1000FT is the only FTIR system optimized for use on-board, and includes integration of data from the ECU, weather data, GPS data and time-aligned video. The system allows for the continuous raw or diluted measurement of up to 30 gases at one sample detector with a sampling rate up to 5Hz. The BOB-1000FT is available for operation at vacuum or atmospheric pressure, allowing for a tailored approach to sample acquisition.

  • A single device, providing asynchronous measurement of up to 30 regulated and unregulated gases at one sample point
  • Durable design and vibration dampening for use on-board under “real world” conditions or in a test cell configuration (roll cabinet available), where it can be moved easily between cells
  • Designed to provide continuous measurement of undiluted or diluted vehicle exhaust for gasoline, diesel, CNG and alternative fuel vehicles
  • Low-cost operation due to drift-free calibrations and minimal maintenance requirements
  • Vacuum sampling system that allows for decreased absorption, a fast response rate (T10-90 -approximately 1.5 sec), and a lower consumption of the exhaust sample
  • A single device that measures all gasses imperative for emissions regulations as well as engine and catalyst calibration and development
  • Integrated data from vehicle ECU, GPS, Weather Data and video each time aligned to all emissions data

  • Differentiated measurement of NO, NO2, N2O, CO, CO2, CH4, NH3, hydrocarbons, alcohols and carbonyls
  • Sample acquisition rate up to 5Hz
  • An advanced cross-interference compensation routine, significantly minimizing the influence of water and other interfering gasses
  • High-altitude Pressure Control system, enabling testing to altitudes of up to 4,000 meters (optional)
  • Selectable sample line, heated filter and cell temperatures
  • Meets or exceeds all requirements specified for FTIR Measurements by US EPA, ASTM, ISO and Euro VI HDD
  • Methods of measurement include continuous raw, continuous dilute or diluted bag
  • Designed for use in harsh environments, including extreme vibration (see video below for an example)
  • Low-cost ownership due to drift-free calibration and minimal maintenance requirements
  • Vacuum sampling method allowing fora faster response rate (T10-90<1.5 sec), and a lower consumption of the exhaust sample
  • Can be used for on-board testing under “real world” conditions and also in a test cell environment where it can be moved easily between cells
  • Excellent correlation with conventional analyzer systems
