MD-1750 Series

50" Rolls, 250-mph, 3,000-hp, 1,200-hp Peak Absorption

MD-1750 - the biggest, fastest and most powerful dyno on the market

The MD-1750 has the largest set of rollers in the industry at 50-inches.  The 1750 Series is designed for customers whose horsepower testing requirements and drag racing slick tires require a larger, tire-friendly roller configurations. The MD-1750 is available with a wide 96-inch outer track for testing large Diesel Trucks.  When coupled with the SE or DE eddy current option, the MD-1750 is capable of properly loading and testing very large diesel trucks without worrying about tire slippage.

With a maximum speed of 250 mph, and a horsepower measurement rating of 3,000-hp, the MD-1750 is by far the fastest and most powerful dynamometer available in its class. The optional single or dual eddy current power absorption feature allows for “steady state” testing at various speed and torque outputs, making the MD-1750 the ultimate high performance dynamometer.

The MD-1750’s inertia-based testing capability provides a practical and efficient method to gauge vehicle performance. Inertia-based performance testing involves accelerating a mass with a known inertia at wide-open throttle. In the case of the 1750, the inertia composed of a pair of 50” diameter rollers act as the road-load mechanism. The rate at which the vehicle is able to accelerate the rollers determines the amount of energy being transferred from the tires to the surface of the rolls. Speed and torque combined are used to calcuate actual horsepower at the wheels. This data is then plotted against time, rpm, or speed to produce invaluable graphical representations of the vehicle’s power curves. A database keeps track of testing records for future baseline test comparisons.

Mustang’s eddy current power absorption features enable the system to test vehicles at variable throttle positions, speeds, and torque outputs. The torque value read from the load cell is combined with roll-speed to calculate the exact force being applied at the vehicle’s wheels. Unlike friction-type load control devices offered by competing manufacturers, our eddy current absorbers and advanced closed-loop computer control system enable the user to carefully control the road load applied to the vehicle under test by increments of horsepower or torque.
