- Engine manufacturer's diagnostic software, also displays ignition timing and injection characteristics.
- Measurement of exhaust oxygen content by Lambda sensor.
Description of Gasoline Engine
An eddy current dynamo meter provides a variable load on the engine, allowing the characteristic power and torque curves to be reproduced in the laboratory. The system comes complete with extensive instrumentation, including rpm measurement, torque from which power can be calculated, plus various temperatures, pressures and flows .
