The Froude AC dynamometer has been specifically designed for the testing of gasoline and diesel engines in R & D and Quality Audit applications.


Low inertia AC motor with standard speed ranges from 3,500 rpm to 10,000 rpm


Standard torque hub measurement accuracy is +/-0.2% of the full rated torque of the dynamometer

Speed is measured to an accuracy of +/- 1 rpm

F Type hydraulic dynamometers are designed for high accuracy of control, torque measurement and rapid load changes (response). Our range includes low speed, high torque variants for turboprop testing and higher speed, lower torque variants for turboshaft testing in uni- and bi-directional configurations. 
As known throughout the industry, the VX100 PRO continues the tradition of extremely accurate load control. The system is user friendly with drag and drop functionality and enhanced screen views. 

The Texcel VX100 PRO has been specifically designed for turbine test applications using distributed I/O concepts eliminating the need for high-density wiring between the dynamometer and the control console. The system incorporates four control modes, special control profiles, health monitoring and failsafe control in critical conditions.
