Sakor Intros Low-Cost AC Dynamometer Motor Testing
Dynamometer solution for basic electric motor testing.
Okemos, MI — Sakor Technologies, Inc. has introduced DynoLAB LT, a low-cost, complete turnkey system for electric motor testing. The new offering provides the test control and data acquisition capabilities needed for basic electric motor testing as well as all of the benefits of an AC motoring dynamometer, but is priced much lower than a comparable DynoLAB EM system.

Unlike its predecessors, the DynoLAB LT offers a fixed I/O configuration optimized for basic electric motor testing. The system has provisions for measuring speed and torque, and optional voltage and current supply to the motor under test. From these data, the system is easily able to calculate values such as input and output power and efficiency. The system's software, a true subset of the DynoLAB EM, offers the basic functionality required for most performance, durability, and quality control testing.

The DynoLAB LT system is specifically designed to work with the company's Accudyne line of AC motoring dynamometers. These dynamometers offer full 4-quadrant operation with seamless transition between loading and motoring modes. The combination of a DynoLAB LT with an Accudyne dynamometer can perform durability and performance testing, as well as quality control auditing of electric motors. This system is particularly appropriate in applications that need both driving and loading capability, such as those requiring direct measurement of true no-load speed and current, bearing and windage losses and back-EMF generation.
