Dynamometers for critical data capture down to zero rp
Force Control dynamometers featuring Positorq oil shear load brakes absorb extreme torque at very low speed, down to zero RPM, allowing them to accurately capture data at these critical junctures when dynos equipped with traditional load brakes cannot. Oil shear technology can provide instant load spikes and static lock-up of up to three times the continuous load rating. High cycle counts (up to 300 torque changes per minute) allow for tests with a hammering effect on the tested subject. Quick, controllable response allows virtually unlimited test capabilities; extremely quiet operation enables gearbox, transmission or final drive noise testing.
High-torque, low-speed testing is commonly used for testing lifecycles, shock loading, overall machine life/performance and more for snowmobiles, forklifts, two-, four- and six-wheel drive tractors or tracked vehicles, commercial truck axles, helicopter transmissions, gun turrets, winches, hoists, hydraulic motors and more. Proven oil shear technology eliminates wear for service-free endurance testing and requires no adjustment or friction material dust cleanup and will be featured on Force Control’s booth.
The company can furnish a complete test stand including frame fabrication, controls, data acquisition and support, or basic components if test engineers prefer to handle certain aspects or components in-house.
