The Sierra Research Dynamometer Tester (SRDT) is an ingenious new instrument for determining the road-simulation accuracy of chassis dynamometers. It was developed as a collaborative project by Sierra Research Inc., of Sacramento, CA and Real Time Dynamometers.
The SRDT is portable and easy-to-use. A carrying case holds all the components, which include the laptop computer, printer, electronic control box, and sensor cables. The system is truly portable, in that it does not even require 115 VAC power to operate (it uses the laptop's own batteries and the batteries in the electronic control box).
How does it work?
The SRDT can test dynamometers capable of simulating full inertia (both positive and negative) as well as those capable of simulating only positive inertia (e.g., those with eddy-current power absorbers). Click here to view Tester specifications.
A new version of the Sierra Research Dynamometer Tester will be applicable to 4WD dynamometers (having two independent speed and force signals).
