What is a Dynamometer?


A dynamometer, also known as a “dyno”, is a device used for measuring power and force generated by engines. A dynamometer measures the power produced by an engine and is calculated by a simultaneous measuring torque and RPM. In addition, it can test a variety of other things such as engine activity, calibration of engine management controls, and it can provide further investigation of combustion behaviors.
The water pressure in an engine dynamometer is what creates the resistance to the engine. The water flow is controlled through an inlet manifold and is directed to the center of the rotator in each section. Then, the water is expelled to the outer body of the dynamometer as it forces-out the water into places where it is decelerated.

Another component of this system is the data acquisition system. This component has two parts, the Commander and the Workstation. It collects the data, operates the precision load and throttle control system, and then sends it to the Commander to be processed and analyzed.  The Workstations success depends on its ability to measure the data correctly.

About the DT2000SG Dynamometer Test

The DT2000 dynamometer is used to test industrial diesel engines by using pressurized water to measure the power of your vehicle. This meter can quickly and easily be fitted to an engine that is mobile or on a fixed stand. This allows the user to achieve accurate and precise results from testing with minimal time required. The meter can attach to all standard engine types.

The engine must be removed from the vehicle in order to use the DT2000 dynamometer. This way it takes a direct and accurate measurement of the engine and the dynamometer test attaches easily to all engine types once removed.  The DT2000 dynamometer is one of the most sophisticated automated data acquisition control systems that exist in the market.
