New Portable Chassis Dynamometer
By Mike Osenga26 September 2018
Dyne Systems, a division of Taylor Dynamometer, has introduced a portable, AC chassis dynamometer, the model TD-24-AC-T. This fully-contained, mobile system is specifically designed for testing on-highway trucks. The AC dynamometer is designed to provide both power-absorbing as well as motoring integrated into the trailer. The motoring function provides downhill simulation.
“As our OEM customers experience more stringent emissions regulations, the TD-24-AC-T allows them the opportunity to perform environmental testing under real-world conditions,” said Jeff Brown, chief operating officer, Taylor Dynamometer. “This provides OEMs an economical alternative to their, in-house, testing facilities.”
The TD-24-AC-T has chassis rolls with an axle weight rating of 20,000 lb. (9,072 kg) per axle and a maximum speed rating of 75 mph. It is road-legal in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The portable chassis dyno can test at altitudes of 10,000 ft. Typically assembly is quick and easy, allowing users to begin testing in less than 60 minutes, Dyne said.
