DC series Dynamometer Controller required peripherals

With the controller, you will receive terminal block connector set for sensors and actuators connection. Following peripherals needs to be bought separately:

  • IEC C13 power supply cable (PC computer cable)
  • USB keyboard
  • USB mouse – recommended with scroll wheel and third button in the wheel
  • Display compatible with HDMI connector and suitable signal cable. Minimum and recommended display resolution is Full HD (1920×1080).

It is possible to connect the controller to a TV or digital projector with HDMI support. If a problem with trimmed desktop or black borders occurs, please disable “overscan” in your TV settings.

Speed sensor and signal wheel is required for making new measurements. The required sensor count depends on the count of independently rotating dyno elements.

To create absorption dyno, the following parts are required:

  • Absorption unit – simple and well performing solution is an eddy current brake. It’s also possible to use other types of units, for example a water brake.
  • Load cell – absorption unit torque sensor
  • Eddy brake power supply if the eddy brake absorber is used. Look for one of the BD series power supplies. Often you can reuse the existing one if you’re upgrading the dyno.

Maximum four absorption units are supported for any dyno type.
