Powder Brake Dynamometers (PB Series) are ideal for applications operating in the low to middle speed range or when operating in the middle to high torque range. Powder Brakes provide full torque at zero speed and are water-cooled, allowing for power ratings up to 48kW. PB Series Powder Dynamometers integrate a torque measuring system with an accuracy ratings of ±0.3% to ±0.5% full scale, depending on size and system configuration.
APPLICATIONS: Mounted on test benches, the PBSeries Powder Dynamometers allow performance and reliability testing on driving elements such as servomotors, geared motor, gearbox, windshield wiper motor, starter motor, fans, drills, hydraulic transmission systems and motors for domestic appliances.
Magtrol offers 3 types of dynamometer brakes to absorb load: Hysteresis (HDSeries), Eddy-Current (WBSeries) and Magnetic Powder (PBSeries). Each type of Dynamometer has advantages and limitations and choosing the correct one will depend largely on the type of testing to be performed. With over 50 standard models to choose from, Magtrol Sales professionals are readily available to assist in selecting the proper Dynamometer to meet your testing needs.
