Altitude testing imitates the use or delivery of a product at various elevations. These tests usually mimic the low air pressure experienced when using a product in high-altitude locations (like Mexico City) or when transporting a product by air. The air pressure ranges that are simulated in altitude test chambers usually correspond to those encountered in a range from 0 to 100,000ft.
At altitudes below sea level, operational and shipping exercises are also frequent. However, tests to mimic the high pressures under water are typically referred to as pressure tests or intrusion prevention (IP) tests. Similarly, tests conducted at or near the extremely low pressures of space are more commonly referred to as vacuum tests than height tests.
The Global Altitude testing system Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Teases for ET7 High-Altitude Testing had been released by NIO. Due to the absence of an internal combustion engine, an electric car’s efficiency is unaffected by the altitude change between Shanghai and Lhasa, which rises to about 5,000 metres.
Nevertheless, there are a lot of components that must be tested under different conditions. For instance, it is important to double check the air suspension because the air pressure varies with altitude and could have an impact on how it is set up and how comfortable the journey is.
Additionally, NIO tested the cooling and heating of the passenger compartment, the overall NVH of the car, the steering system, the braking system, the EDS system, the power cell system, and the EDS.
The new drive units from the NIO ET7 (180 kW permanent magnet in the front and 300 kW induction motor in the back) will also be used in the company’s current models, the ES8, ES6, and EC6.
They assume that makes financial sense, particularly given that the battery packs are already shared by the models. This time, NIO brought the ET7 for high-altitude testing to Tibet after the winter tests were finished in New Zealand and the extreme heat tests were finished in Sanya, Hainan, Turpan, and Chongqing, China.
