Correction Factors for DynPro


Correction Factors for DynPro

As a convenience to our customers we offer standard Correction Factor calculation packages for our DynPro Data Acquisition and Control System. These packages include correction factors for parameters such as Fuel Density, Barometric Pressure, Inlet Air temperature and Fuel Temperature that are to the standard identified (SAE or ISO). DynPro also provides a very user friendly utility for the creation of custom calculated channels that makes the creation of new or custom corrections very easy. This capability can eliminate the need for most post processing requirements. We  offer Correction Factor packages for both SAE and ISO standards along with a package that is specific to Caterpillar.

Diesel Fuel Measurement Unit


Diesel Fuel Measurement Unit

The Diesel Fuel Measurement Unit accurately measures the weight of diesel fuel (not for use with gasoline) in a beaker and calculates the rate of fuel consumption by continuously analyzing the weight of the beaker as the engine draws and returns fuel. The beaker is self-filling and will automatically maintain the minimum and maximum amounts of diesel fuel in the beaker. All units include a chiller to cool the return diesel fuel and maintain a beaker temperature of 100°F (38°C).

In Engine Test Cells the Diesel Fuel Measurement Unit may eliminate the need for a Day Tank. The Taylor Data Acquisition and Control system is required for operation.

Dyno Weather Station


Dyno Weather Station

The Weather Station provides relative humidity and barometric pressure measurements to the Taylor Dynamometer Data Acquisition and Control System. It includes the inputs necessary for correcting data to standard atmospheric conditions. By using the powerful calculating capabilities of the data acquisition and control system, and the Weather Station option, you will be able to apply atmospheric correction to data automatically. The Taylor Dynamometer Pressure and Temperature Package is required.

Pressure and Temperature Packages


Pressure and Temperature Packages

The Pressure and Temperature Package compliments Taylor’s Data Acquisition and Control System. The package is assembled into the DynPro enclosure when purchased. The DynPro enclosure is the primary hardware enclosure and point of connection to the engine and test cell. The DynPro enclosure may be mounted on a wall, boom or a pedestal.  There are seven (7) standard pressure and temperature options to choose from with custom configuration available upon request. view allview all





ECM


Electronic Engine Interface

The Pneumatic Throttle Control allows for remote control of the engine throttle and is designed to work with any make or model of engine that uses a mechanical throttle. The Pneumatic Throttle Control can be directly actuated by either a mechanically operated hand-lever or through Taylor’s DynPro data acquisition and control system. view allview all




Electronic Engine Interface OBD-II and J1939


Electronic Engine Interface OBD-II and J1939

With this accessory installed, DynPro communicates with electronic engines using either the OBD-II or J1939 bus protocols. The Electronic Engine Interface for OBD-II and J1939 is only available for DynPro 6 and newer systems and cannot be used in systems where the Heavy-Duty Electronic Engine Interface (J1708/J1939) is installed. The Electronic Engine Interface for OBD-II and J1939 is optional for engine dynamometer and chassis dynamometer applications. When this item is selected for a chassis dynamometer application, it replaces the standard Heavy-Duty Electronic Engine Interface (J1708/J1939). view allview all

Intake Airflow Meter


Intake Airflow Meter

The Intake Airflow Meter measures the amount of intake air consumed by an engine. Using the Pitot principle to measure the total and static pressure components of airflow, the pressure sensing ports sense the impact pressure of the approaching air stream allowing the transmitter to determine the volumetric flow of air. With the ports positioned at designated angles, the meter assures accurate measurement of the sensed airflow rate and eliminates the need for an airflow straightener upstream.

The transmitter provides an automatic zeroing circuit capable of electronically adjusting the transmitter to zero at predetermined time intervals while simultaneously holding the transmitter output signal. The automatic zeroing circuit eliminates all output signal drift due to thermal, electronic or mechanical effects, as well as the need for initial or periodic transmitter zeroing.

For Intake Airflow Meters operated in temperature controlled spaces (with no thermal effect upon span), this automatic zeroing function essentially produces a self-calibrating transmitter.

Share Module


Share Module

The DynPro Share Module is a wiring interface/enclosure designed to allow one DynPro Data Acquisition and Control System to be used with two separate dynamometers. The signals to and from the two dynamometers are wired to the DynPro Share Module and depending on the switch position, will send the signals to and from the dynamometer in use to the DynPro Data Acquisition and Control System during a test.  The Taylor Share Module is used to switch the load and speed cables from one dynamometer to a second dynamometer. This share module does not allow both dynamometers to be testing simultaneously.

Electronic Throttle Control

The Electronic Engine Throttle Interface is for use on electronically-controlled diesel engines. Our interface connects directly to the vehicle or engine’s harness and does not interfere with the vehicle’s computers. Cable terminations or connections to the vehicle or engine’s harness are the customer’s responsibility. The Electronic Engine Throttle interface module is designed for use on Detroit Diesel (DDEC II, III and IV) and Caterpillar (HEUI) electronically-controlled engines. Our interface uses  a 0 to 10 VDC input signal and adjusts the throttle position (output) proportionally. We recommend the use of an off-board diagnostic tool (MPSI PROLINK) or a PC-based diagnostic device for system calibration and operational verification prior to running the engine.  An Engine Instrumentation Unit is required. view allview all






Pneumatic Throttle Control

The Pneumatic Throttle Control allows for remote control of the engine throttle and is designed to work with any make or model of engine that uses a mechanical throttle. The Pneumatic Throttle Control can be directly actuated by either a mechanically operated hand-lever or through Taylor’s DynPro data acquisition and control system. view allview all
