SuperFlow Dynamometers and Flowbenches

AutoDyn 880E AWD

There is a reason that the AutoDyn™ 880E AWD is used all over the world by some of the most respected names in automotive performance. That reason is simple: SuperFlow® has perfected the art of accurate road simulation via a simple and reliable mechanical linkage. SuperFlow’s® Road Simulation Technology(RST) utilizes heavy-duty differentials and a steel drive shaft to synchronize the front and rear roll speeds along with eddy-current brakes to accurately load vehicles according to their inertia, aerodynamic losses and rolling losses. SuperFlow® RST prevents damage to the differentials and viscous couplings of AWD vehicles and removes the chance of activating a vehicles traction control system or ABS while accurately loading each vehicle as if it were traveling down the road or track.

SuperFlow® RST is much simpler and more accurate than complicated belt systems that stretch and break or inconsistent electronically synced systems that allow the front and rear rollers to spin at different speeds, causing driveline windup and damaging driveline components. Differentials and driveshafts allow SuperFlow® to accurately measure and compensate for the parasitic losses of every dyno produced so that each one leaves the factory calibrated with its own inertia and parasitic data. The end result is the most accurate torque and power measurement available. Further, torque is measured using two temperature-compensated load cells, one at each roll set, so you’re not only able to see total torque across the rpm range, but also the torque split between the front and rear axles.

The AutoDyn™ 880E AWD’s large 42” knurled rolls provide superior traction and minimal tire deflection so testing is as close to real world conditions as possible. Cradle roll systems deflect the tire in two locations which builds more heat in the tire and results in less accurate hp measurement than large single roll dynos like the AutoDyn™ 880E AWD.

Above Ground Ramp Kit


Above Ground Ramp Kit

SuperFlow® offers lightweight aluminum ramp kits for the AutoDyn™ 11 and AutoDyn™ 30 chassis dynos. Kits include heavy-duty aluminum ramps and extended platforms that support the vehicle during testing. Because they are light-weight these ramps work great for portable dyno applications and they are easy to move in and out of place. Ramps are perfect if you are unable to install your SuperFlow® chassis dyno in a pit or when shop space is limited because they stack neatly out of the way when not in use. Contact a SuperFlow® Sales Engineer today to get the correct ramp kit for your chassis dynamometer.

SENSOR BOX

The SuperFlow sensor box is the brain of the 139 channel WinDyn system. Its advanced electronics measures high-resolution data at 1,000 Hz and sends the data to WinDyn for live monitoring. Input channels handle temperature, pressure and air fuel sensors while calculation channels handle formulas, interpolation tables and memory. The included real time weather station uses a barometric pressure transducer, air temperature sensor and humidity sensor to provide constant atmospheric updates to WinDyn so WinDyn can apply the proper correction factor (ECE, DIN, SAE, STP, etc). The sensor box is also the brains behind SuperFlow’s legendary closed loop PID control for accurate, loaded testing. Its flexible dual-mode control scheme allows either the dyno or the throttle to control to speed, torque, power, manifold pressure or any other channel of your choosing. Sophisticated logic lets each controller use up to four different control modes and parameter settings. The sensor box is modular so it can easily be configured for different sensor arrangements, with additional sensor panels or with options like OBDII and emissions measuring equipment. Four Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD) are standard in the front of the sensor box to show power, torque, engine speed, or any channels you select, live in the test cell. Four more LCDs can be added optionally. For convenience, the sensor box is mounted on a sturdy, roll-around stand with a five-spoke cast aluminum base and multidirectional casters. It can optionally be mounted on a boom or directly to the wall.

User Interface

SuperFlow offers two options for control of your SuperFlow chassis dyno. Standard, is the wired handheld controller housed in a rugged impact resistant enclosure. It features an eight-line by forty-character liquid crystal display. Twenty seven keys handle data entry and test setup with ten soft-keys that are automatically labeled for function during each test. The display can show any of a hundred separate measurements in real time and provide the operator with prompts and choices for running the test. Sturdy rubber mounts hold the controller on the steering wheel freeing up your hands to run the dyno and the vehicle.

Optionally, NetDyn is a Windows® based software solution that operates wirelessly (TCP/IP protocols) so you are not slowed down by wires. The industrial, touch-screen tablet PC allows you to run the dyno and any tuning software of your choice, simultaneously from the drivers seat. 8 function keys provide a tactile response for crucial test functions while two set point controllers allow for open or closed loop testing. Two dial meters can be configured to monitor any channel being collected in WinDyn®.
