Why do you need a dynamometer?

Dynamometers are important tools for measuring power in many different industries. One obvious and very common example of this would be in the automotive industry. Engine dynamometers are used in high performance automotive shops to measure power outputs and tune cars for optimal torque ranges.

In other industries and applications, a dynamometer can be the most accurate way to measure the performance or output of a machine. Industrial pumps may be fitted with dynamometers so that the operator can determine how much power is needed to perform a particular process. A hydraulic dynamometer is able to adjust the power of an engine quickly using fluid pressure.

There are many different types of dynos on the market, from small engine dynos to diesel engine dynamometers and beyond. If you are in an industry that uses heavy machinery, chances are that you will need one of the dynamometers that are available at Go Power Systems.
