Model 1200 Automotive Sub-Scale Dynamometer

Overview

The Model 1200 Sub-Scale Automotive Dynamometer provides an economical alternative to full scale dynamometer testing.  This machine is configured to replicate full scale brake assemblies by utilizing approximately one-fifth scale samples of a variety of friction materials to analyze actual vehicle braking conditions. The universal caliper and rotor provide a convenient way to evaluate friction materials without actual vehicle components.
