MPDB Frontal Impact, new mobile barrier for EURO-NCAP 2020

On April 17th, EURO-NCAP updated the draft protocol for the upcoming MPDB test. 

For the mobile barrier, the technical parameters remain unchanged, for which reason ERNST has already received orders for this new barrier type and has begun production.

It is also possible to retrofit your existing ERNST mobile barriers, like AE-MDB, ECE-R95, ECE-R34, RCAR or FMVSS 208, at any time with a special retrofit kit.

We also offer to examine your available mobile barriers to assess whether a retrofit is possible. This conversion, as well as the associated calibration works, can be carried out at the customer's site, to minimize the downtime in the crash lab.

The integration of load cells or dummy load cells for a later retrofit is also easily possible.

Please feel free to contact us, we will certainly find a tailor-made solution for your individual case!

IAV nimmt in Großmehring bei Ingolstadt eine neue Crashanlage in Betrieb und ist damit europaweit der einzige Engineering-Partner mit zwei eigenen Testzentren für Fahrzeugsicherheit.

Die Firma ERNST wurde bei diesem Vorhaben von Beginn an involviert und durfte ein breites Spektrum seines Produktportfolios nach Großmehring liefern, unter anderem eine komplette Embankment-Rolloveranlage mit fast 20 Meter Böschung.

Last November, the Advanced Car Technology Systems GmbH & Co. KG (ACTS) in Sailauf (Germany) ordered various ERNST products, which have already been put into operation this March.

First of all, a new Flying Floor has been installed. The aim of the new procurement was being able to carry out crash tests in a very short time, for example by the use of hydraulic dampers. Customized adaptations to the existing bearing device as well as a large film pit make the usability complete.

Furthermore, from now on crash tests will be carried out at ACTS according to the latest NHTSA standard, using ERNST's mobile small overlap barrier. For this purpose, the existing interface of the current control system was easily adapted to the ERNST software and after a couple of hours further tests could be performed.

ERNST would like to thank ACTS for the good and trustworthy cooperation and is looking forward to being a reliable partner fur future projects.
