Inspection and test systems

Precise, highly dynamic,
perfectly configured.

LUX Automation also offers you customized solutions for inspection and test systems, from end-of-line test stands to development platforms. We configure the equipment for your test stand based on our technical expertise and decades of experience. Individual. Powerful. Reliable and state of the art.


From design concept to commissioning

Are you aiming to expand your technology and performance? Then you need a partner you can rely on. LUX Automation accompanies your project from design concept to final commissioning. Professionally and promptly. We also support you following implementation of new technologies and equipment. So that you can maximize the return on your investment in the long term.


Test stands for engines, transmissions and electrical components

We offer mains and drive converters, including controls for highly dynamic engine and transmission test benches and test systems for electrical components. For a wide variety of industries. Because no two test facilities are the same. That’s why LUX Automation’s solutions for test bench applications are designed for maximum flexibility.

For drive powers of up to 2 MW – expandable with parallel circuits – the individual components can be assembled for the specific application, ranging from compact, reliable test benches for engines, through highly dynamic Formula 1 test benches, to demanding applications in the energy sector. Any configuration is possible.

The modular drive concept of LUX Automation allows connection of several different drive elements to the common DC bus.

The design of our systems not only allows energy recovery via the common DC link, but also offers a high degree of flexibility in configuring the system architecture.

We work closely with our customers to offer optimal, competitive solutions that meet requirements for higher performance, higher speeds, better dynamics and faster communication. Thanks to our experience in system integration, LUX Automation is able to deliver a fully customized and individually designed solution.

Our power electronics and drive technology is found in:

  • Roller-test-bench
  • Combustion-motor-test-bench
  • Gearbox-test-bench
  • Highspeed E-Drivetrain-test-bench
