Welcome to my Dynamometer page . . .
On this page you will find the construction of my Eddy Current Dynamometer.
My goal was to build my own dynamometer, I started last year building a water brake dyno. I was maybe halfway finished with the project when I ran into this eddy current unit sitting in a junk yard. I negotiated a deal with its owner and soon had it loaded in the back of my truck and off to its new home. I bought the power absorber, magnetic triggers and some shaft encoders all for one money. Must say DEAL of the century!!
Well now once I had it,
do I do with it? I started surfin' the web looking for info on dynos,
not alot out there unless you wanna pay to buy one. Since I had a
serious lack of $$$'s I read all I could on the subject, and little by
little I am placing all the pieces of the puzzle together. I finally
started on the construction phase after getting all the data I needed
on the power supply requirements from the manufacturer.
Keep checking back from time to time and watch my progress . . .
