A versatile regenerative enginetest set with comprehensive controls and instrumentation. When used with one of optional single-cylinder engines, it safely and effectively enables study and demonstrations of the features and characteristics of the engine. In addition,optional ancillaries are available to extend the range of study, demonstrations and investigations even further. The equipment is fully compatible with Versatile Data Acquisition System. Using this enables accurate real-time data capture, monitoring and display, calculation and charting of all relevant parameters on a computer making tests quick and reliable.
The main components of the system are:
A heavy fabricated floor-mounting bed
An instrument console with instrument frame
A fuel tank support frame that supports the fuel tank and optional fuel gauge
The bed is held on anti-vibration mounts. It includes a robust trunnion-mounted d.c. machine. An electronic load cell connected to the machine measures the driving torque of the test engine.The engines are supplied pre-mounted on a sturdy precision base plate. When the engine is initially mounted onto the test bed or exchanged with an alternative engine, dowels and slots locate the engine quickly, accurately and reliably.Each engine includes a colour-coded fuel tank with self-sealing couplings.
