MODEL : DC-5R
This 5th generation dynamometer controller is a universal dynamometer controller for all eddy current and generator type dynamometers. With optional Hydraulic Servomotor it can run hydraulic and Water Break dynamometers as well. A Throttle Position sending control is provided from the front panel, and with optional throttle control servomotor can control the engines throttle. In Computer Control mode the actual control mode (manual, speed, torque, road load) and set point can be controlled by the computer along with the throttle position. This allows for fully automated engine/vehicle drive cycle testing.
- 25V to 100V PWM Output
- Current from 3A to 10A
- Small M5 Sensor
- Full PID Control of Torque / SPeed
- Free Software for Logging/Display/li>
- 1 year warranty
DIY Dynamometer Controller Software
Our dynamometer controllers are very popular with students who often "hack" the system to perform special functions. To encourage this we have developed several code samples of the basic Dyno Monitor soft ware in LabView, Dasy Lab and Agilent VEE. You can down load these source code files and edit them to make your own custom dyno monitor/controller. In "COMputer" control mode the dyno mode, set point and throttle position are all taken from the computer, allowing closed loop control and automation of your dynamometer. With a little creativity you can also make it into a motor speed controller, load control and many other things.
Feel free to use and spread these samples around. We only ask that you acknowledge that you got the source code from Focus.
In the future look for the "DIY Dyno" as we release a DIY version of our popular Gen 5 dynamometer controller!
