AC Dynamometers (Dynos)
Taylor Dynamometer has been making chassis dynamometers since the 1960’s. Taylor Dynamometer’s line of AC style chassis dynamometers (dynos) accommodates continuous vehicle power ranges from 50hp to 1100 HP (37kW to 820kW), single or tandem axle trucks and buses and a full range of flexible axle spreads’. Taylor’s AC chassis dynamometers allow a top speed of 120mph (193Km/h) with a top recommended speed of 80mph (129Km/h) at full load. As with all our chassis dynamometers, the AC style chassis dynamometers are designed for use in the medium to heavy-duty vehicle markets. Simply put, we design these systems to test vehicles ranging from single-axle diesel pickup trucks, RV’s and buses up through the largest tandem axle on-highway trucks and buses.
Taylor Dynamometer offers four (4) standard AC chassis dynamometer models. These units are designed to be used in rough operating conditions and to operate with a modern frequency converter. Each of Taylor’s AC chassis dyno’s is equipped with a positioning encoder and has an excellent dynamic response due to the low moment of inertia and high pulse torque.
Taylor offers custom AC chassis dynamometer solutions for practically any application. Please contact a sales representative for more information.
Taylor’s data acquisition and dynamometer control system is DynPro. DynPro works equally well with waterbrake style dynamometers, eddy current dynamometers, DC dynamometers and AC dynamometers.
