February 9, 2009 - Revolutionary Engineering, Inc. Awarded Dynamometer System Build in China

Revolutionary Engineering has been awarded their first job for delivery to China. The 1.03 Million USD contract will consist of three (3) complete dynamometer test systems used to measure non-firing engine characteristics. These systems will simulate a wide range of engine operating parameters including engine oil and coolant temperature (to 140C). In addition, each test cell will have the ability to simulate individual cylinder combustion torque pulsations up to the maximum (dynamometer) rotational speed of 10,000 RPM.

The first system is designed to measure internal combustion engine component friction characteristics. The...

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...
