Chassis Dynamometers

MD-1000 Series

17.8"Rolls, 125-mph, 2,000-hp, Heavy Duty Truck Chassis Dynamometer

MD-1000 - The industry standard for tandem-axle heavy duty truck Chassis Dynamometers

The MD-1000 Series heavy duty truck dynamometer has a standard peak horsepower measurement capacity of 2,000 hp, enough to handle most standard trucks, including tandem axle Class Eight tractors. The standard MD-1000 includes two MDK-400 air-cooled eddy current power absorbers that give the power to absorb up to 1,200-hp intermittently. Additional power absorbing units are available to increase the loading capabilities of the MD-1000. In fact, the MD-1000 is available in multiple design configurations to meet virtually every possible testing scenario and to cover the vast majority of heavy duty vehicles.

Other features include a rugged, unitary frame and flexible tandem axle spacing. The precision machined rollers mean you can conduct sustained tests at highway speeds. With Mustang’s sophisticated software, you can design a wide range of tests including three-stage diesel lugdown – and provide both on-screen and print-out results. Controls include a wireless hand-held unit, so operators can control the test from the cab of the vehicle. Additional options available include PAU cooling fans to help keep the air-cooled PAU’s cool, additional axle sets, Variable speed engine cooling fans, and integrated diesel opacity meters.
