SuperFlow’s new entry into the diesel chassis dyno market, the SF-610, is the evolution of their popular water brake chassis dynamometers of the 1990’s. The new SF-610 features the latest eddy current load technology which offers more finite control, easy and more cost effective installation, and low maintenance costs when compared to similar water brake models.
The SF-610 fits directly into most existing SuperFlow water brake chassis dyno pits (like the SF-601 and SF-602) so upgrading is easy. The SF-610 has a standard peak horsepower capacity of 2,000 hp, more than enough to test today’s class 8 tandem axle tractors. Two high-torque eddy current power absorbers can absorb up to 1,200 HP intermittently and 500 HP continuously to perform a complete array of standard loaded tests. The rugged frame is designed for years of service and is rated for a maximum axle weight of up to 24,000 lbs.
The dual axle design accomodates both single and dual axle heavy-duty vehicles like transit buses, class 8 trucks, box trucks and moving vans. The belt connection from the front to the rear rolls allows both eddy current absorbers to apply load to either axle meaning single axle vehicles can still be tested using the full capacity of the absorbers.
The included WinDyn Data Acquisition system offers 139 customizable data channels and comes loaded with standard tests to get you up and running quickly. Standard tests include: acceleration, diesel lugdown, step, steady-state and road load. Allowing technicians to safely simulate real world driving conditions like up hill grades to properly diagnose and repair vehicles.
Tests are controlled from the cab using SuperFlow’s industry standard hand held controller. The rugged, impact resistant enclosure protects the handheld controller from the harsh environment of a diesel repair shop and also provides physical buttons to make sure the operator is always in control throughout the test.
