The only dyno line that expands with your needs. Start today with a low-cost "Lite" model. Later mount add channels, upgrade software, etc. – without wasting your original investment. Most feature decisions may be revisited – years later. We manufacturer all major components in house – saving you third-party markups of competitors.
Reads TRUE crankshaft Hp using precision full-bridge (temperature-compensated) strain gauges to directly measure actual torque, instead of estimating from hydraulic pressure or inertial acceleration. Only crankshaft dynamometers isolate Hp from the inconsistencies of chain/belt efficiency, tire drag and windage, etc. to provide repeatable data serious developers need to compare against other engine-builders’ or OEM’s results.
Patented torque transducer technology is immune to temperature changes and the length of the moment-arm (anti-rotation point). So, it requires no correction for reaction center distances. Pushbutton (semi-automatic) zeroing of the torque offset calibration is also standard.
Load engines indefinitely, water-brake absorbers are not limited to only a few seconds of flash inertial track acceleration. It’s a tool… not a toy.
Automated load control simplifies steadying the peaky kart engines, it reacts faster to sudden torque changes than most humans can. Our optional electronic-servo load valve replaces the standard manual-load control. Once installed you use buttons to select the test RPM, or sweep rate, and then let the computer do the rest of the work.
Advanced standard features including: Smart Record™ trigger points, data dampening with spike filtering, auto-zeroing, instant playback, adjustable data averaging, atmospheric correction, and integral adjustable engine rev-limiter.
Precision designed and manufactured for flexibility, strength, high accuracy, and reliability. Each water absorption brake, torque arm, load-valve, etc. is beautifully CNC machined out of anodized aircraft billet aluminum and 17-4 heat-treated stainless steel.
Develop faster karts by separating what does work from what should stay on the shelf – with less trial and error. In hours, rather than seasons, you can find those tuning combinations that keep top racers out front.
*Approximate; continuous capacities depend on selected absorber and test speed. Air-cooled absorber loads are rotor temperature dependent. Water brake power capacities are RPM dependent and assume a minimum water supply of 1 gpm @ 30 to 60 psi for every 20 continuous Hp.
