AXIS DYNAMOMETER BY DOBECK PERFORMANCE
The AXIS dynamometer from Dobeck Performance allows you to quickly and accurately diagnose all running aspects of a vehicle. The AXIS dyno brings a NEW standard of stationary road testing for motorcycles, trikes, ATVs, side-by-sides and scooters.
DPís head engineer, Bill Kirkpatrick describes the AXIS as, "a radically new dynamometer."
"Dynamometers are designed to measure the power of vehicles," Kirkpatrick continues. "They are used for vehicle and engine design, to develop new aftermarket products and diagnose problems for vehicle repair. Varying degrees of complexity have been used in an attempt to simulate road conditions such as wind drag, inertia (the weight of the vehicle), or climbing a hill."
"Simple Inertia Dynos are limited to examining a vehicle only during acceleration. Brake Dynos use some type of brake (usually a water brake or electrical brake) to hold the speed of the vehicle constant. Combinations of those, along with software to dynamically control the brake, attempt to provide a more realistic duplication of road conditions. The displayed power is the sum of each independently measured load: A force cell attached to the brake, the acceleration of the roller, the frictional losses of the bearings, etc. Unfortunately, each measurement introduces its own errors and the combination of them still doesnít accurately reproduce real world conditions. Numerous other loads would be useful but are too difficult or costly to measure accurately, or simply vary too much to be repeatable. We have achieved a better way."
