The only dyno line that expands with your needs. Start today with a low-cost stand-mount water-brake model. Later mount an absorber, expand to AWD, add channels, upgrade software, etc. – without wasting your original investment. Excluding absorber-type (see below) most feature decisions may be revisited – years later. We manufacturer all major components in house – saving you third-party markups of competitors.
One configuration does not suit all! The above paragraph notwithstanding, one unique specification will lock you in: absorber type. It limits the usable response/speed/power (class) of any engine dyno.
• Only doing break-in, or leak testing? Then a simple block-mount water-brake Racer Class absorber may be okay.
• Tuning 500+ Hp drag/street/rally engines? Get serious with docking-station Engine-Builder Class absorber systems.
• Developing high-speed hyper cars, or performing research work? Demand eddy-current or AC R&D Class absorbers.
Call to let us help you do your homework on this absorber-type topic, and others, or continue reviewing below:
• Absorber type: water brake
• Peak power limits:* 850 Hp, or 1,900 Hp
• Peak torque limits:* 900 ft·lb, or 1,800 ft·lb
• Response time: good
• Rotor inertia: very-low, or low (lower is best)
• Frame type: bellhousing or engine-stand mount
• Absorber type: water brake or air eddy-current
• Peak power limits:* 850 Hp to 4,000 Hp
• Peak torque limits:* 900 ft·lb to 3,000 ft·lb
• Response time: good to very-good
• Rotor inertia: very-low to high (lower is best)
• Frame type: docking station or trunnioned mount
• Absorber type: liquid eddy-current or AC
• Peak power limits:* 35 Hp to 2,200 Hp
• Peak torque limits:* 30 ft·lb to 7,900 ft·lb
• Response time: very-good to excellent
• Rotor inertia: very-low to low (lower is best)
• Frame type: docking station, trunnioned mount, or rotary-torque transducer

*Approximate; continuous capacities depend on selected absorber and test speed. Air-cooled absorber loads are rotor temperature dependent. Water brake power capacities are RPM dependent and assume a minimum water supply of 1 gpm @ 30 to 60 psi for every 20 continuous Hp.
