Serpentine belt drives are often used in front end accessory drive of automotive engine. The accessories resistant torques are getting higher within new technological innovations as stater-alternator, and belt transmissions are always asked for higher capacity. Two kind of tensioners are used to maintain minimum tension that insure power transmission and minimize slip: dry friction or hydraulic tensioners. An experimental device and a specific transmission error measurement method have been used to evaluate the performances of a generic transmission by determining the pulley-belt slip for these two kinds of tensioner. A data acquisition technique using optical encoders and based on the angular sampling method is used with success for the first time on a non synchronous belt transmission. Transmission error between pulleys, pulley/belt slip are deduced from pulley rotation angle measurements.Results obtained show that: the use of tensioner limits belt slip on pulleys, pulley-belt slip is reachable from transmission error measurement, belt non uniform characteristics are responsible of low frequency modulations of transmission error.
