dynoKRAFT A380-2WD

Single roller 2WD dynamometer

High-end test bench for the most demanding applications.

Features highlight

  • 630mm [24,8″] rollers
  • 330km/h [205mph]
  • 1250HP wheel power
  • 4WD expansion possible

The dynoKRAFT A380-2WD automotive chassis dynamometer offers unique features and design combined with best-in-class controller and dyno software.

The defaults installation type in PIT. The dynamometer is delivered with all required installation material and metal grating for the pit-installation.
Floor-top installation or combination with 4-post is lift available on request.

Roller width of 2200mm allow to test even wide-body GT race cars without problems.

With single 3820Nm eddy current brake the A380-2WD automotive chassis dynamometer allows to test up to 1250HP  (wheel horsepower).
The retarder is constantly cooled by built-in fan.

The roller diameter of 630mm reduces tire wear drastically and help keeping the tire temperature under control during long test sessions.

The dynamometer comes equipped with pneumatically actuated wheel-bumper that supports the vehicle during setup.
An built-in LED underbody illumination provides clear view during vehicle strapping.

The dynoKRAFT A380-2WD can be expanded to -4WD version with mechanical link at any time and freely configured with extension modules (additional inputs, OBD Interface etc…) to match customer needs thanks to our upgradable design concept.
