Eltra Srl has been operating for over 50 years in the field of non-serial-production electromechanical constructions, designing its products based on the specific requirements of the customers
Eltra’s special characteristic is the capability to cover with internal resources all the aspects related to the design of our products: mechanical parts, electrical parts, digital and analog electronics, software for PLC and microcontrollers, control software develop on PC. We have also a great experience on integrating third party components into our products, from a simple measuring device to a high-level climatic chamber
This aspect enables Eltra to offer complete and
functional solutions at competitive prices, allowing its customers to refer to
a single partner both in the stage of project development and in the stage of
In particular, developing the software directly inside the same company offers the greatest confidentiality guarantees
Our products are manufactured on demand, are developed according to the customers’ specifications and are divided into two main areas:
The magnetic machines area for the production of:
The testing equipment area, for the production of equipments for laboratories and production lines
Equipments for the industry of car components and equipments for both industrial and starting batteries are two typical groups of products manufactured by Eltra
Battery testing includes a full line of high rate dischargers for end-of-line and a full line of laboratory endurance testers. High rate dischargers size varies in the range from 200 to 3000A. Internal control software of these machines can be supplied in base version or can be customized to meet specific Customer requirements in terms of data analysis, storage and integration with plant database both for receipt inheritance and for results storage. Laboratories need flexible equipments that can fulfill a high number of testing standards and customer requirements. Charge/discharge machines are driven by a specialized software that permit to define complex testing procedures and store results in a handy format that can be stored as-is or easily exported to analysis programs. Equipment for industrial applications can integrate voltage acquisition for individual battery elements and accommodate the testing procedure to the conditions of each of them.
In electromechanical area, we are producing equipments both for performance and endurance testing on automotive components like starters and alternators, as well as benches for end-of-line testing of those products.
All our products comply with the standards in force for their specific sectors, their performances are fully tested and they also undergo a short test of continuous operation before delivery.
Eltra keeps all technical and administrative records of its products for over 15 years, and therefore is able to provide maintenance and service and upgrades for the whole duration of the product's lifetime.
In the field of starting batteries we cooperate with the laboratories of Exide, Fiamm and Midac, the 3 primary Italian companies which produce batteries for OEMs. These laboratories carry out both quality controls on regular products and tests on new products; each factory has installed about a hundred charge/discharge equipment, with different power ranges, and several high current battery dischargers.
The main equipment we supply for production lines are high current dischargers for final quality test at end of production. Our dischargers have been selected to be integrated into their production lines by several manufacturers both for automotive and motorcycle batteries (Exide, Fiamm, Midac...)
In the years we have produced equipments for incoming quality tests of Fiat, Iveco, Piaggio and Alfa Romeo factories, as well as similar equipments for Bosch, MAKO and Iskra/Mahle for their plants in south America, Turkey and Slovenia.
Laboratories equipments are charge/discharge testers controlled by specialized software that can fulfill a high number of testing standards and customer requirements: it permits to define complex testing procedures and store results in a handy format that can be stored as-is or easily exported to analysis programs.
In the years we have produced equipments for outgoing quality tests for producers (Exide, Fiamm, Midac...) and for incoming quality tests of Fiat, Iveco, Piaggio and Alfa Romeo factories, as well as similar equipments for Bosch, MAKO and Iskra/Mahle for their plants in south America, Turkey and Slovenia.
Our experience permits us to collaborate with research Centers like Enea and CRF (Centro Ricerche Fiat) to supply special machines for their needs. A special line of products is now coming up for the study of Lithium batteries and for CAN-equipped accumulators.
