WB Series Eddy-Current Dynamometers

Eddy-Current Dynamometer

Product Description

Eddy-Current Brake Dynamometers (WB Series) are ideal for applications requiring high speeds and also when operating in the middle to high power range. Eddy-Current Brakes provide increasing torque as the speed increases, reaching peak torque at rated speed. The dynamometers have low inertia as a result of small rotor diameter. Brake cooling is provided by a water circulation system, which passes inside the stator to dissipate heat generated by the braking power, providing high continuous power ratings (max. 140 kW). The WB dynamometers have accuracy ratings of ± 0.3% to 0.5% full scale (± 2% for WB 2.7), depending on size and system configuration. Additional options include: high-speed version, speed pickup, mechanical rotor blocking device, OEM version IS and vertical mounting.

Features

  • 13 Models with Maximum Torque from 300 mN·m to 560 N·m (42 oz·in to 413 lb·ft)
  • Braking Power: from 500 W to 140 kW
  • Stable Braking Torque, without Shock
  • Low Moment of Inertia
  • Low Residual Torque
  • Operating Direction CW / CCW
  • Braking Torque Measurement Integrated
  • High Rotational Speed
  • Integrated Optical Speed Sensor
  • Special designs available upon request

Operating Principles

The WB Eddy-Current Dynamometers develop their full power at high rotation speeds. The WB Series is particularly intended for motors which rotate at high speeds, up to 65 000 rpm (up to 100 000 rpm with WB 23 / 27; see specific datasheet). The braking torque depends on the rotation speed.

Optical Speed Sensor
Each WB Series Dynamometer has an optical speed sensor delivered as standard. WB 2.7 & WB 43 has an optical speed sensor with a 30-PPR encoder; WB 65, WB 115 & WB 15 has an optical speed sensor with a 60-PPR encoder.

Dynamometer Selection

Magtrol Dynamometers cover a wide range of Torque, Speed and Mechanical Power ratings. To select the appropriate size Dynamometer for your motor testing needs, you will need to determine the Maximum Torque, Speed and Power applied to the Dynamometer:

Maximum Torque

It is important to consider all torque points that are to be tested, not only rated torque, but also Locked Rotor and Breakdown Torque. Dynamometer selection should initially be based on the maximum torque requirement, subject to determining the maximum power requirements.

Maximum Speed

This rating is to be considered independent of torque and power requirements, and is the maximum speed at which the Dynamometer can be safely run under free run or lightly loaded conditions. It is not to be considered as the maximum speed at which full braking torque can be applied.

Maximum Power Ratings

These ratings represent the maximum capability of the Dynamometer Braking System to absorb and dissipate heat generated when applying a braking load to the motor under test. The power absorbed and the heat generated by the Dynamometer is a function of the Torque (T) applied to the motor under test, and the resulting speed (n) of the motor. This is expressed in these power (P) formulas:

SI:P (watts)=T (N·m)xn (rpm)x(1.047 × 10-1)
English:P (watts)=T (lb·in)xn (rpm)x(1.183 × 10-2)
Metric:P (watts)=T (kg·cm)xn (rpm)x(1.027 × 10-2)
All of Magtrol's controllers, readouts and software calculate horsepower
as defined by 1 hp = 550 lb·ft / s. Using this definition:
hp=P (watts)/745.7
To calculate power, use Magtrol's online motor power calculator

The Dynamometer’s ability to dissipate heat is a function of how long a load will be applied. For this reason, the Maximum Power ratings given are based on continuous operation under load, as well as a maximum of 5 minutes under load.

To safely dissipate heat and avoid Dynamometer failure, the maximum power rating
is the most important consideration in selecting a Dynamometer.

These extremely versatile fixtures also enable easy motor centering for coupling to a Magtrol HD Series Hysteresis Dynamometer. (Couplings can be supplied upon request.) Various motor lengths are accommodated by either an attached T-slotted base plate or sliding base, depending on the model.

The AMF-1, -2 and -3 Fixtures feature one or two adjustable bridges, each fitted with a fluted knob clamp screw, to allow clamping anywhere along the axis of the motor. The adjustable bridge on the AMF-V Fixture incorporates a straight-line action clamp with a V-angle rubber padded clamp to maximize the mounting area.

To safeguard the motor, locking thumb screws provide protection against vibration and all motor-to-fixture contact surfaces are nylon padded for scratch-free clamping.
