Force Control dynamometers featuring Positorq oil shear load brakes absorb extreme torque at very low speed, down to zero rpm. This allows them to accurately capture data at these critical junctures, when dynos equipped with traditional load brakes cannot. Oil Shear Technology can provide instant load spikes and static lock-up of up to three-times the continuous load rating. High cycle counts (up to 300 torque changes per minute) allow for tests with a hammering effect on the tested subject. Quick, controllable response allows virtually unlimited test capabilities, while their extremely quiet operation allows gearbox, transmission, or final drive noise testing. High-torque, low speed testing is commonly used for testing life cycles, shock loading, overall machine life/performance and more for snowmobiles, forklifts, 2-wheel/4-wheel/6-wheel drive tractors or tracked vehicles, commercial truck axles, helicopter transmissions, gun turrets, winches, hoists, hydraulic motors and more. Proven Oil Shear Technology eliminates wear for service-free endurance testing and requires no adjustment or friction material dust cleanup.
Force Control Offers an à la Carte Approach to Dynamometer Systems
Force Control Industries can furnish a complete test stand including frame fabrication, controls, data acquisition, and support. This can be a benefit to many companies who often build testing facilities in-house, but either lack the ability or time to design and support the complete system. Force Control also works with many test engineers who are makers of their own design that prefer to handle certain aspects or components of a system in-house. A variety of sizes and arrangements are offered for thru-shaft mounting, flange mounting, and shaft coupled foot mounting as well as vertical, horizontal or incline mounting orientations. Load brakes can be supplied with a torque arm and load cell, cooling/filtration/actuation systems and data acquisition software as well as control valves, structures, and other ancillary components.
