This test stand measures the power output of internal combustion engines delivering up to 3kW. The complete test stand consists of three main elements: The CT 159 for mounting of the engine and as a control unit, the universal drive and brake unit HM 365 as a load unit and a choice of engine: four-stroke diesel engine (CT 151), two-stroke petrol engine (CT 153) or four-stroke petrol engine (CT 150).
The main function of CT 159 is to mount the engine, supply it with fuel and air and record and display relevant measurement data. The engine is mounted on a vibration-insulated base plate and connected by way of a belt drive to HM 365.
HM 365 is initially used to start the engine. As soon as the engine is running, HM 365 acts as a brake for applying a load to the engine.
The lower section of the mobile frame contains fuel tanks and a stabilisation tank for the intake air.
The vibration-dampened switch cabinet contains digital displays for temperatures (one display each for exhaust gas, fuel and intake air) and air consumption. The speed and torque are adjusted and displayed on the HM 365.
The measured values are transmitted directly to a PC via USB. The data acquisition software is included.
