Modular test benches—MTB

The modular test bench from Areus GmbH generates a development environment in which to test different vehicle telematics components. The test benches enable analysis of the interaction of individual components and their function.

We produce the right modular test bench for every application:

  • MTB Max
  • MTB Compact
  • MTB Mobile
  • MTB Individual

MTB Remote Power Module

On account of the increasing demands for remote testing Areus has added two key features to its modular test benches:

  • Remote switching on and off of the ECU
  • Current measurement for monitoring the ECU state

Using a pluggable module on the test bench, this or a PC is connected via USB to a PC or Raspberry pi. It is controlled via serial protocol (virtualCOM port).

This makes it the perfect companion with easy commissioning for testing in the home office.

We are happy to support you with the configuration of your appropriate test system.

The MTB Max

We have been developing and producing the Modular Test Bench for many years. The experience gained and feedback from our customers has always been incorporated into the development process. The result is a product that can be easily and modularly adapted to customer requirements. The modular system allows the MTB to be largely incorporated after a generation change of the control units.

Adaptation to the latest sample status is achieved by means of special cable sets, labeling sets and, if necessary, modules or adapter plates. The MTB comprises two units. The main unit provides the actual test environment and offers space for control units and components. The User Interface Unit contains components that are used for interaction. The optional transport carriage makes the system transportable.

Advantages at a glance

  • Future-proof product
  • Very extensive range of functions
  • Easy customization to your needs
  • High reusability in case of changes

MTB Compact

We developed the MTB Compact as a cost- and space-saving variant. This version is sufficient for a large number of tests, but omits various features and the connections are reduced to a minimum.

Advantages at a glance

  • Extremely compact dimensions
  • No unnecessary expense
  • Modular and flexible design
  • Integrated connections

MTB Mobile—the portable solution

The MTB Mobile offers the perfect solution for testing ECUs at any location. In particular, the home office limits access to the testing equipment, making it much more difficult to work efficiently. A limited number of the well-known modules from the MTB modular system can be integrated individually as required.. This enables you to create the right mobile testing environment for each ECU. 

All required ECUs, cable sets, displays and testing equipment can be safely stowed away

This makes it the perfect companion with easy commissioning for testing in the home office, in various regions of the world and on test drives.

We are happy to support you with the configuration of your appropriate test system. 

Made to measure for every challenge

We develop customized test benches for individual requirements that our standard variants do not cover. These individual MTBs are created in close consultation and cooperation with our customers. We will be happy to advise you personally about this.
