Engine dynamometers need two basic items from their data acquisition and control system: finite controls for repeatable testing and configurable I/O to integrate a wide range of sensors and control the test environment. WinDyn delivers and provides so much more.


  • Sensor box containing I/O for 139 user configurable channels, modular in design to grow as testing needs grow
  • Control console – operator interface for test setup, manual engine control and test cell function control
  • Operator station with integrated throttle handle and cable – can be upgraded with automatic throttle controllers
  • Servo motors or eddy current controllers – we will update the load controllers with our own providing precise and programmable PID controls
  • Computer system factory configured with WinDyn 3.2 software, two 22in. LCD monitors and a color printer
  • Typically three days of onsite installation and training


  • Modular, flexible and ready to expand with your requirements
  • 76 sensor inputs for pressure, temperature, lambda and analog voltages
  • Data acquisition rates up to 2,500 Hz for high resolution test data and finite analysis of engine performance
  • Automated, ready to run test profiles
  • Available software editors to fully customize the test environment
    • Test Profile Editor – modify our provided tests or write a custom profile
    • Configuration Editor – write custom calculations from measured data, add sensors as needs change, modify the unit of measure on a channel
    • Limits Editor – set safety functions based on engine or test cell parameters to protect engines, operators and the test facility
  • Voltage outputs send control signals to third party devices like fly-by-wire throttles
  • WinDyn API to integrate any WinDyn channel into the software platform of your choice in real time
  • Accessories to automate the entire test cell including lights, fans, pumps, engine controls and safety interlocks
