Description
 
This is a universal motor dynamometer (dyno) that measures the rpm, kv, voltage, current draw, power and torque output of a electric motor. This dyno is great tool for motor analysis, ESC (boost) adjustment, brushless sensor adjustment, gearing calculation, etc. The dyno is coupled to a 540/550 motor or a Outrunner motor via a pulley and belt to accelerate the inertial mass. We will call this a ‘flywheel’ for simplicity. Our electronic board takes the flywheel’s inertia (resistance of an object to a change in its state of motion), measures the rate it takes to accelerate and calculates the output power and torque of your motor. Our dyno repeatedly measures and calculates power in small increments to produce an accurate graph on a PC of the engine’s power characteristics.

PACKAGE CONTENTS

  • (1) R/C motor dyno with 90mm 196g aluminum flywheel.
  • (1) 50V / 90amps current sensor
  • (1) Outrunner motor mount
  • (1) Pulley for 3.175 shaft
  • (1) Pulley for 5mm shaft
  • (1) Motor loop temp. sensor
  • (1) Dyno electronic board v1.1
  • (1) Micro-B USB cable


SAFETY FIRST

The dyno uses a high quality 6061 aluminum frame cover around the flywheel to protect from high rpm motors. Yet we still offer the ability to see the flywheel spinning action by adding a clear window screen. In addition, a clear Plexiglas shield covers the belt to protect from possible belt breakage.



FLYWHEEL

The flywheel design is the heart of the dyno. We offer different sizes and materials to best suit your motor application. Additional flywheels can be purchased separately.


FIXED BASE

Screw into baseboard to securely fasten the dyno. Screw #3 is optional.


MOTOR HOLDER

Select two type of motor holders: (1) 540/550 motor holder, and (2) Outrunner motor holder.


MOTOR PULLEY

The dyno includes two size of pulleys: 3.175mm, and 5mm bore to use with Outrunner and 540/550 motors. 4mm bore can be purchase separately.


PREMIUM BALL BEARINGS

The flywheel incorporates a set of 2 high-speed, black-sealed, steel ball-bearings throughout the assembly to ensure maximum efficiency.


PRECISE TEST RESULTS

Precise, otherwise known as "Repeatability" is what you want in a dyno, that means test the same electric motor time after time and get the same results. Our dyno is capable of repeatable test results using the ESC Controller Board (Sold Separately).


ELECTRONIC BOARD

The dyno uses a custom PCB with a build Optical RPM sensor, delivering low noise and accurate readings. It features a built-in micro USB for connection to your PC. It includes one external LCD port, one external throttle controller port, one current and voltage sensor port, and two temperature sensor ports.


PC APPLICATION

The dyno includes the software to analyse motors. SOFTWARE FEATURES:

  • Real-Time Data Display
  • Real-Time Data Plotting in 2D or 3D
  • Multiple Charts Selection
  • Two Unit Systems: English & Metric
  • Multiple Runs on the Same Screen Graph
  • Summary Information Screen for Quick Results and Analysis
  • Graphical Gauge Setup Options
  • Graph Curves Settings
  • Logging Data, and Saved in .CSV Format
  • Edit Data Live without Using 3rd Party Software such as Excel
  • Save/Load Previous Runs, including the Graphs
  • Print Test Results in Black or White Background
  • Compatible with RC Crew Chief (RC3) - see picture below


** This is a sample dyno test results using RC3. This software IS NOT INCLUDED. Please visit RC3 website for more details. **
