dynoKRAFT MPS-Series

Air-cooled engine dynamometer

Stationary engine test system with wide Torque and RPM coverage.

Features highlight

  • up to 3820 Nm
  • up to 9.500 RPM
  • flexible clutch

The dynoKRAFT MPS-Series stationary engine dynamometers offer exceptional high measurement precision together with best-in-class DAQ system and high speed Sport Devices PWS-HS Eddy-Current brake power supply.

This affordable dynamometer system can be used to test internal combustion or electric engines. It comes on non-adjustable chassis with stiff test bed allowing vibration-free high RPM testing.

Despite it’s moderate price the dynoKRAFT MPS-Series engine test systems offers full test automation and advanced software for data analysis.

For most applications the dynamometer is supplied with high-flexible TOK torsional clutch. Advanced semi-automatic engine docking systems are also available on request.
Please see the technical papers in “Downloads” section.

If you require even higher RPM test ranges please contact dynoKRAFT directly.
We also offer custom-build dynamometers with RPM-range up to 10.000 1/min.

There are four base versions available:
MPS80 – 800Nm – 9.500RPM
MPS170 – 1700Nm – 8.000RPM
MPS200 – 2000Nm – 6.800RPM
MPS380 – 3820Nm – 6.800RPM
