The Froude AC dynamometer has been specifically designed for the testing of gasoline and diesel engines in R & D and Quality Audit applications.


Low inertia AC motor with standard speed ranges from 3,500 rpm to 10,000 rpm


Standard torque hub measurement accuracy is +/-0.2% of the full rated torque of the dynamometer

Speed is measured to an accuracy of +/- 1 rpm

F Type hydraulic dynamometers are designed for high accuracy of control, torque measurement and rapid load changes (response). Our range includes low speed, high torque variants for turboprop testing and higher speed, lower torque variants for turboshaft testing in uni- and bi-directional configurations. 
The VX200 builds upon the success of the VX100 PRO controller which has operated in test cells throughout the world for more than a decade. Specifically designed for testing gas turbine engines, the VX200 includes control and signal conditioning circuits for the dynamometer and associated hydraulic power packs and flywheel.

Running on the latest version of MS Windows, the Froude VXI graphical user interface provides clean visualization of dynamometer data on user-customizable pages. Responsive control is offered through a simple ergonomic desktop controller or customer host interface.
