Small Engine Dynamometer

D100 Portable Small Engine Dynamometer (Dyno)

d100 no backThe Go Power D100 small engine dynamometer (dyno) allows you to test engines from 10 to 100 horsepower at engine speeds up to 14,000 rpm with durability and accuracy to meet the most demanding industrial requirements.

This lightweight, compact unit is rugged — constructed of high-strength aluminum alloy and can be operated from a water supply almost anywhere. Its extreme versatility makes it ideal for use with “go-cart” or outboard marine engines as well as industrial durability testing for engines and components.

The D100 is the choice dynamometer of many Formula SAE teams around the world. We also offer discounted pricing for SAE teams as well as for educational institutions! Call  Sales to discuss—we can be reached at +1 248-579-4295 (press 1 for Sales). 

The D100 is compatible with our complete line of digital consoles and state of the art control systems. This unique modular design provides maximum flexibility to expand to your system as your testing requirements grow.

D100 Small Engine Dynamometer System Packages

EDP100 Dynamometer System Package

Essential Dynamometer Package for Small Engine Testing

As with all the Go Power Dynos, the D100 can be purchased as an individual unit, or as part of a complete test package:

The EDP100 Essential Dynamometer System Package is a portable small engine testing package consisting of:

  • D100 Dynamometer (see above for details)
  • TCA100 torque calibration arm assembly (metric or imperial, weights not included) (Note: dyno should be calibrated every 6 months)
  • VS3001 manual load control valve set
  • DC200 digital display console. Read more about the DC200
  • IKIT001 interface harness kit (speed and torque)

The EDP100 is perfect for the small engine tester that does not require a data acquisition system but is looking to simply get readings on RPM, Speed and Torque. If an actual data acquisition system is desired, the ADP package (below) would be appropriate.

GPS6000 Data Acquisition System

The ADP100 Advanced Dynamometer Package includes all of the components listed in the EDP package, except the GPS6000 Data Acquisition System is supplied in place of the DC200 Display Console.

  • D100 Dynamometer (see above for details)
  • TCA100 torque calibration arm assembly (metric or imperial, weights not included) (Note: dyno should be calibrated every 6 months)
  • VS3001 manual load control valve set
  • GPS6000 Digital Acquisition System
  • IKIT001 interface harness kit
