Magtrol PB Series Powder Dynamometers
- Smooth braking torque
- For low to middle speed or medium to high torque applications
- Water circulation cooling, allowing for power ratings up to 48 kW
- Typical accuracy ratings of ±0.3% to ±0.5% (±2% for PB 2.7) full scale, depending on size and system configuration.
Powder dynamometer – Model 2 PB 115 The Powder Brake Dynamometer (PB Series) contains, as its name suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking torque through friction. They are ideal for applications operating in the low to middle speed range or when operating in the middle to high torque range.Like Hysteresis Brakes, powder Brakes provide full torque at zero speed. Like the Eddy-Current Brake Dynamometers, the PB series are water-cooled, allowing for power ratings up to 48 kW. The PB Dynamometers have accuracy ratings of ± 0.3% to 0.5% full scale, depending on size and system configuration. Additional mounting possibilities include speed pick-up and OEM version IS.
