Automotive Chassis Dynamometers

Phoenix Dynamometer automotive chassis dynamometers are designed, manufactured, and built on experience. With standard features like heavy-duty steel frames, large serviceable pillow blocks, dynamically balanced & high-capacity roll sets with either a knurled finish or industrial coating, maintenance-free soft couplings, industrial-grade braking systems, and LIGHTSPEED™ data acquisition and control software.  When these features are combined with our state-of-the-art water brake, air-cooled & water-cooled eddy current, and AC power absorbing units (PAU’s) you have exactly what your testing center deserves and nothing less.  Do you need something CUSTOM?  Whether you require a cradle mount or top mount system, Phoenix Dynamometer has the knowledge and expertise to CUSTOM BUILD from scratch or adapt any of our standard models to fit your exact testing needs.
