The dynamometer control console.
The digital data acquisition on our dynamometer;
The data acquisition computer corrects for acceleration and deceleration inertia, reads torque, rpm, 12 exhaust gas temperatures, fuel flow, air flow, inlet air temperature, engine oil pressure, engine oil temperature, engine manifold pressure, and engine water temperature channels over 1,000 times a second. Barometric pressure and humidity inputs along with the inlet air temperature channel are used for correcting horsepower and torque to a known standard (SAE J1349, J1228, J607, J245). Also recorded are calculated channels such as volumetric efficiency, brake specific fuel consumption, brake mean effective pressure, air fuel ratio, EGT average, and EGT delta. See dyno shoptalk definitions.
Graphed dyno test results;
All the data acquisition channels can be graphed in any way imaginable.
Safety features on our dynamometer;
The dynamometer is wired so that the engine being tested will not crank, start, or run without oil pressure. Initial oil pressure is supplied by an integrated electric prelube oil pump. This is ideal for the initial run of any engine.
We can preheat the test engine with the built in coolant heater and electric water pump drive.
Additional features on our dynamometer;
The EGT thermocouples can be mounted in a spacer that fits between the test engine’s cylinder head and exhaust manifolds or headers. This way we can avoid drilling holes in your headers for the EGT thermocouples. RevSearch has built equal length adjustable (for primary tube length and collector diameter) dyno headers for small block Chevrolet, small block Mopar, big block Mopar, and W-2 Mopar. Others will be built in the future. Most of the fuel supply system is stainless steel and will handle exotic fuels.
Note: A complete sweep test and data printout takes
about five minutes. So with minor changes between tests, six to eight tests could be run per hour.
