DYNertia3 Dyno System (Inertia & 'open loop' brake dyno)
Thanks to DYNertia3 the answer to the high cost of Engine / Chassis Dyno’s is at hand - build your own DIY Inertia and/or 'open loop' Brake Dyno! A Dyno is usually considered far too expensive or complex for most people - even if it's a straight forward Inertia design - the electronics and software necessary to make it all work effectively are just way too complex! Perfect for any one interested in engine / vehicle testing and modifying, whether it be kart, bike, car or even model sized engines.
Inertia type dyno operates on the principle of calculating the power required to accelerate a known mass, which is basically just a 'flywheel' coupled to the engine or vehicle. The controller senses the velocity of the rotating mass, handles the precision timing required and outputs this data to the PC for analysis and display. No expensive 'load cell' or absorber required! We have a guide and tools to assist in the designing and building of the inertia assembly, regardless of it being an engine dyno or chassis style.
Brake (absorber) type dynos use a mechanical load (e.g. water, eddy current, hydraulic, friction) against the engine and the torque applied is measured on your ‘load cell’. In ‘brake’ mode DYNertia3 uses this torque input rather than the inertia figure for power calculations. The basic DYNertia3 kit does not control the absorber (you need to control the load applied), it gathers the data, this means it is 'open loop'.
Even a precision rotational sensor ('Hall' effect) and magnet is included with the kit. No need for additional speed sensors and their associated ‘trigger wheels’. This method is both accurate and easy to incorporate into your dyno design.
So stop dreaming about having a Dyno to add that extra edge to your tuning - eliminate the time and cost of guessing what's going on with your engine. And of course, if you run a performance business the extra trade generated by the Dyno facility will set you apart from your competitors. It really is that simple, professional and cost effective!
