Standard models are available for front wheel, rear wheel, and all wheel drive vehicles. Applications include characterisation of road load driving conditions and coastdown, emissions correlation, braking and chassis dynamometer tests.
Installation is made without vehicle rework. Mounting the torquemeter on a standard wheel produces a small offset. The offset can be eliminated with a modified wheel. Torquemeter weight and inertia emulate a conventional wheel.
Excellent temperature compensation and a unique sensor design provide intrinsic immunity to temperature gradients and radial and cornering loads. These torque wheels are constructed of corrosion resistant materials and waterproofed to permit operation in shallow water. They also exhibit unprecedented tolerance to inevitable cable shunts caused by salt or other contaminants.
These models require strain gage, AC carrier style amplifier with capable of providing 3 - 6 volts rms at 3 kHz ±10%.
Hylec Controls | Test Equipment Suppliers and Intergrators
Hylec Control was first established in 1979 and initially started operation as a developer and manufacturer of analogue control systems. These were specially customised hydraulic applications, using servo valve technology. Hylec inarguably aclaims to be one of a few companies that have the knowledge and experience to service and repair most servo brands past and present.
Today, Hylec while still maintaining their core business in supply and service of quality servo valves also provides the latest equipment for the Test, Measurement, Construction, Building, Automotive & Aviation industries.
We welcome you to a snapshot of some of the latest technology available today.
