Vertical / Horizontal Dynamometers

Virtually any size Midwest® or Dynamatic™ dynamometer can be configured either vertically or horizontally. To accommodate testing of small engines and motors with both vertical and horizontal shaft orientations, Dyne Systems also provides a compact small engine portable dynamometer “tilt stand” that locks in the horizontal or vertical positions, with fixtures for mounting and coupling both styles of engines or motors during test. These portable dyno test stands can be configured with an AC (motoring and absorbing) dynamometer or an Eddy Current (absorbing) dynamometer, depending on the application.

  • Speed Encoder or Magnetic Pickup
  • Speed Feedback
  • Integrated electric starter for starting the device under test
  • Electric actuator for selecting position
  • Trunnion mounted or inline transducer
  • Calibration arms and weights
  • Safety Interface Sensors: Temperature faults and Coolant flow faults
  • With Inter-Loc V or Dyn-Loc IV Digital Dynamometer Controllers:
    • Torque measurement and regulation
    • Speed measurement and regulation
    • Horsepower calculation
  • Trunnion-mounted dynamometer with load cell, or foot-mounted with inline torque flange
  • Heavy-duty weldments for vibration dampening

  • Engine
  • Electric Motor
  • Transmission / Transaxle / Differential
  • Gear Box / Lubricants

Vertical / Horizontal Test Stands - 5 to 75Hp

Standard Vertical and Horizontal Test Stands range from 5 to 75Hp however, any dynamometer can be build to test Vertically and Horizontally.
