Eddy Current Engine Dyno

Eddy Current Engine Dyno

The ED1000 is a versatile and affordable, air cooled eddy current based engine dynamometer system with all of the control and data acquisition capabilities of our advanced water brake based systems, housed in a compact and portable test bed, and featuring a detachable engine cart, providing the added convenience of engine fitment remote from the engine test cell / room. 

The fan assisted, air cooled, high capacity, single eddy current retarder (PAU), is torque rated at 1500NM and power rated for 1000 kW @ 6000 RPM , and optionally module expandable to incorporate twin or even triple eddy current retarders for higher torque applications if required.  

Incorporating our industry leading dynamometer controller,and data acquisition system, the ED1000 will produce extremely accurate and repeatable test results, time and time again.
