April 30, 2008 - New Water Brake ECHO Controller Installed

Water Brake ECHO Controllers provides more control for Detroit Diesel Corporation

Revolutionary Engineering installed two new ECHO controllers for Detroit Diesel. The ECHO dynamometer controller provides servo motor amplification, motor position control, advanced signal control for torque and speed, signal conditioning and digital I/O commands. The motor amplifier provides position control over Detroit Diesel’s water brake dynamometer servo value. The amplifier uses a 0-10 volt position command to control value position from closed to fully open. The processing unit computes the position command to the motor amplifier. The processing unit will take in speed, torque and command signals to determine the needed position to match the commanded torque value or speed values.
