Dynamometers  

 
The latest evolution of the SPA Portable Damper Dynamometers are the result of continuous development. Our primary objective at SPA has always been to meet the demands of the shock development engineers themselves.
 
The SPA dynamometers are used by racing teams world-wide; Formula One, PPG Indy car, NASCAR, Touring car, Motorcycling and many others.
 
All machines are totally made to the highest standards, and are subject to rigorous testing before release.
 
We offer a bespoke software service should this be required and can offer the software 5.22 and 6.4 in changed formats to customers' own requirements. This is priced subject to information supplied by the customer.
 
The SPA shock absorber dynamometers are designed to allow accurate performance measurements to be made for all types of hydraulic dampers:
 
    Single Seater Racing Cars
    Racing Saloons
    Motor Cycles
    Off Road Vehicles
    Mountain Bikes
 
Using the SPA shock dynos, the Race Engineer, Mechanic or Team Owner can take some of the guess work out of vehicle set-up. You will achieve quick and accurate performance graphs so that shocks can be compared and matched, tuned or diagnose faulty or ageing shocks, providing graphical and numerical proof.
 
Our dynamometers are the result of years of extensive development work in conjunction with experienced shock absorber development engineers. Each one listed below offers a unique element to each product, which enables you to choose the best dyno for your need:
 
    BI 99 - Portable dynamometer, enabling monitoring and development to damper program.
    BTP 99 - Bench top portable dynamometer, enables test facility at trackside and workshop.
    BTP 2000 - Portable dyno placing particular emphasis on low speed control.
    BTP 4000 - Offers same features as BTP 2000 but with a 4" stroke option.
    PSD 2004 - Designed for both the experienced engineer and the first time buyer.
    PMD - Designed for the shock absorber producer for intensive manufacturing testing.
    Clubman 04 - Designed to bring a dyno with high end machine features to limited budgets.
    SRP06 - Spring testing machine that covers most racing applications.
 
Our commitment to continued development and modular upgrades will ensure that SPA dynos will stay at the forefront of shock absorber analysis technology.
