Load Control and Transmitter Stand Assemblies
The Load Control Assembly (LCA) is the electrical or electro-mechanical interface that allows the control system to control the dynamometer load. The Transmitter Stand Assemblies (TSA) is the torque arm, load cell and linkage that allows the data acquisition and control system to measure torque.
Load Control Assemblies:
Water Brake Dynamometers – the LCA is an electro-mechanical assembly that includes a water Pressure Regulating Valve (PRV), water control valve(s), speed sensor assembly and air pressure regulation kit. This assembly allows the control system’s load control signal (0 – 10 VDC or 4-20 mA) to control the water flow into the dynamometer and thereby control dynamometer load from 0 – 100%.
Eddy Current Dynamometers – the LCA includes an isolation transformer and power amplifier. The power amplifier is an electrical device that functions as a direct current (DC) regulator. This assembly allows the control system’s load control signal (0 – 10 VDC or 4-20 mA) to control the current flowing through the dynamometer and thereby control dynamometer load from 0 – 100%. The Eddy Current LCA is available in a 230 V version for use with Taylor’s DE20 – DE720 series dynamometers. A 115 V version LCA is available for use with Taylor’s DE20 – DE150 series dynamometers.
