LINK Model 3000 Inertia Brake Performance Dynamometer


  • ProLink software for control, data acquisition, analysis, and reporting
  • ProLink based inertia simulation
  • Swing away enclosure doors and cooling ducts
  • Machine mounted electrical components save floor space and ease installation
  • Complete measurement suite to record speed, distance, temperature, torque, and other parameters




The Model 3000 Dynamometer is designed to perform controlled input or output tests upon hydraulically actuated brake assemblies. The system incorporates state-of-the-art technology for optimal correlation to actual operating conditions. 
All primary operating functions are performed at the dynamometer station including selection of test parameters, control modes, display of pertinent data, monitoring of all test functions and execution of desired test sequences.
The simulated inertia system permits the replication of braking performance for a wide range of vehicles. Since infinitesimally small inertia increments can be simulated and bearing and other losses are compensated, highly accurate brake performance replication is possible. Simulated inertia increases the ease of operation since the desired inertia is simply set in the control computer, eliminating the need for the operator to physically change the inertia.
