Dyne Systems, a division of Taylor Dynamometer, has announced the launch of its new, portable, AC Chassis Dynamometer, the TD-24-AC-T. This fully-contained, mobile system is specifically designed for testing over-the-highway trucks. The AC dynamometer is unique, in that, it provides both power-absorbing as well as motoring integrated into the trailer. The motoring function provides downhill simulation.
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 and the system can endure extreme temperatures and ambient weather conditions. The portable chassis dyno offers the ability to set up and test anywhere including at altitudes of 10,000 ft. Assembly is quick and easy, allowing users to begin testing in less than 60 minutes.
“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, COO, Taylor Dynamometer. “This provides OEMs an economical alternative to their sophisticated, in-house, testing facilities.”
“This is a great example of what the combined strengths of Taylor Dynamometer and Dyne Systems can deliver to customers,” said Larry Golding, CTO, Taylor Dynamometer. “We’ve combined the expertise of AC dynamometers and controls that Dyne Systems brings to our organization, along with Taylor’s heavy-duty chassis dynamometer experience and combined it into a single product. This is not the first time that this merger has been beneficial to the combined companies, but it is an extremely visible and exciting one.”
