Control and Data Acquisition - Texcel V4

The Texcel V4 Controller is specifically designed to provide accurate, reliable and cost effective control of hydraulic and eddy current dynamometers and engines.  The controllers are simple to install, configure and calibrate, and provide displays of speed and torque in selected units of measure.  



The Texcel V4 Controller for hydraulic and eddy current dynamometers provides precise multimode digital control and integrated dynamometer and throttle actuator control (on engine control versions).  The unit is supplied in a 19 inch rack mounting module and comes complete with interconnecting cables between the controller, power module and dynamometer.  

The dynamometer's running conditions are controlled via the throttle and dynamometer demand knob, and an intelligent demand encoder detects the speed with which the control knob is being turned, allowing very precise control under both transient and steady state conditions.

The Texcel V4 unit incorporates a safety interlock which can be integrated with the rest of the test facility.


The Texcel V4 Controller is ideal for engine and test cell applications in a variety of industries using eddy current and hydraulic dynamometers.

The Texcel V4-H & HE versions can control a variety of inlet valves such as servo-hydraulic, motorized and pneumatic.
