Engine RPM Data Logging Module

This is possibly the most important addition to any Mainline Dyno and the data it can obtain is often underestimated. This hardware module utilises two different type of pickup probes (Voltage Probe or Inductive Clamp) to provide accurate direct engine speed measurements (RPM) from either a voltage probe or an inductive type probe.

The “Voltage Probe” is a wire clip / piercing type clip (3 to 500VDC) that can be connected to various engine trigger sources for engine speed measurement such as:

  • Primary Coil Terminal (Coil Negative)
  • Coil trigger wire (COP Ignition)
  • Injector Trigger Wire
  • Cam Angle Sensor
  • Crank Angle Sensor
  • Tacho Connector
  • ECU (Injector, Coil Trigger, CAS, CKS, Tacho)

The “Inductive Clamp” as the name suggests, is clamped over a wire and measures the magnetic “pulses”. This probe can be connected to various engine trigger sources for engine speed measurement as follows:

  • Spark Plug Wires
  • Primary Coil Wires (Positive or Negative Polarity)
  • Coil Trigger or Power Supply
  • Injector Trigger Wire
  • Common Rail Diesel Injectors (Solenoid Type – Power or Trigger Wires)

Trigger sources will often have different firing frequencies, so the dynamometer software program provides “Tacho Pickup Pulses per Engine RPM to adjust and calibrate for various sources.

The operator can also select Custom Pulses / Rev”” for any unusual frequency sources, or for solenoid type common rail diesel injectors.


Tacho Setup

RPM Control Mode – Tacho Trim

The AWD1200L Series optional Engine Tachometer / RPM Data Logging Module allows the operator to manually set the desired Engine RPM point as required, and the vehicle will be held at that RPM regardless of throttle position.

The operator may control RPM set points in increments of 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 and 500 RPM steps. The Tacho Trim function makes the mapping of aftermarket programmable Engine Management Systems a breeze.

Just dial up your desired RPM and the dyno will do the rest. The operator can specify the tacho input source (Hardware Tacho, OBD-II, or ECU) and configure the system to allow for manual or automatic transmissions and specify the tacho speed steps and sensitivity. No more continually varying the Dyno Demand/ Road Speed as you progress through the various tuning MAP sites.

Just select your desired RPM and the dyno will do the rest!

Engine Speed RPM Vs Roller Speed RPM Ratio

Logging engine RPM data over vehicle road speed can also be an invaluable tool for diagnosis driveline problems, clutch slip, torque converter problems, and other torque transmission issues. Essentially the engine speed (RPM) data should appear as a “linear” plotted trace. This would indicate the driveline is functioning correctly whereas a non-linear plot or a sudden flare in the trace line would indicate loss of torque transmission. 

Our latest dyno software version has a new channel that graphs “Engine RPM to Vehicle Speed Ratio” which looks at the overall picture and can very quickly identify any loss in torque transmission from the flywheel through to the dyno rollers. The ratio should be generally constant, so as the engine RPM increases, the vehicle's wheels (or axle speed on our ProHub systems) should also increase proportionally.

OBD-II Data Logging Module

 The AWD1200L Series optional OBD -II Data Logging module is an enormously powerful tool for extracting data from the vehicle’s ECU and utilising this information for tuning or diagnostic purposes.
