Safety Precautions
Warning!
In order to minimize risks, it is of utmost
importance to respect the current safety
standards when planning, configuring and
operating the motor test system.
1. Make sure that all Magtrol dynamometers and electronic products are earth-grounded, to
ensure personal safety and proper operation.
2. Check line voltage before operating electronic equipment.
3. Make sure that dynamometers and motors under test are equipped with appropriate safety
guards.
Note:
Detailed information regarding Motor Test Protective Systems can
be found in Section 2.8 – Protective Systems.
4. Always select a coupling that matches the speed and braking torque of the tested system.
5. Wear protective glasses when working on a test bench.
6. Never wear a necktie or baggy clothes when standing close to the test bench.
7. Never stand too close to the running test bench or bend over a rotating shaft.
8. Electrically insulate the motor terminal block.
9. Always connect the motor envelope to earth ground.
10. Make sure that the safety circuitry of the motor control cannot be deactivated by accident.
Warning!
A defect on the electrical transmission
line can cause a short-circuit which can
propagate to all connected instruments or
persons in contact with the apparatus.

1. Introduction
1.1General Description
The WB and PB Dynamometers manufactured by Magtrol are used for testing all types of motors
and rotational systems, and measuring their torque and power according to their speed. They have
been specially designed for integration in a complete motor testing system.
The WB Series Dynamometers feature Eddy-current braking systems and are able to be operated
at high speeds. However, as their braking torque is proportional to their speed, they cannot be used
at low speeds.
The PB Series Dynamometers feature magnetic powder brakes and are therefore appropriate for low
and medium-speed testing. Due to their design, they generate their maximum torque at standstill.
However, their maximum speed is limited to avoid the magnetic powder being centrifuged.
To combine the advantages of both designs, Magtrol offers a tandem mounting of both dynamometer
types for applications requiring measurements on a wide range of speeds.

PB 2.7
poWDer DYnaMoMeter operating principLes
The PB Powder Dynamometers contain, as their name
suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing
through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes
the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking
torque through friction between rotor and stator. The Powder
Dynamometers (PB) produce their rated torque at zero
speed. The element to be tested can be loaded at standstill to
determine the starting torque.

PB 43
poWDer DYnaMoMeter operating principLes
The PB Powder Dynamometers contain, as their name
suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing
through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes
the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking
torque through friction between rotor and stator. The Powder
Dynamometers (PB) produce their rated torque at zero
speed. The element to be tested can be loaded at standstill to
determine the starting torque.

tanDeM operating prinCipLes
Because the characteristics of the WB and PB dynamometers
are complementary, Magtrol is able to offer them mounted
in a tandem setup. Each dynamometer (WB and PB) can
autonomously operate according to its own characteristics.
An electromagnetic clutch is needed for this application
which automatically switches off at the maximum speed of
the PB Powder Dynamometer and automatically switches on
at zero speed.

poWDer DYnaMoMeter operating principLes
The PB Powder Dynamometers contain, as their name
suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing
through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes
the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking
torque through friction between rotor and stator. The Powder
Dynamometers (PB) produce their rated torque at zero
speed. The element to be tested can be loaded at standstill to
determine the starting torque.

tanDeM operating prinCipLes
Because the characteristics of the WB and PB Dynamometers
are complementary, Magtrol is able to offer them mounted
in a tandem setup. Each dynamometer (WB and PB) can
autonomously operate according to its own characteristics.
An electromagnetic clutch is needed for this application
which automatically switches off at the maximum speed of
the PB Powder Dynamometer and automatically switches on
at zero speed.

poWDer DynaMoMeter operating principLes
The PB Powder Dynamometers contain, as their name
suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing
through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes
the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking
torque through friction between rotor and stator. The Powder
Dynamometers (PB) produce their rated torque at zero
speed. The element to be tested can be loaded at standstill to
determine the starting torque.

tanDeM operating prinCipLes
Because the characteristics of the WB and PB dynamometers
are complementary, Magtrol is able to offer them mounted
in a tandem setup. Each dynamometer (WB and PB) can
autonomously operate according to its own characteristics.
An electromagnetic clutch is needed for this application
which automatically switches off at the maximum speed of
the PB Powder Dynamometer and automatically switches on
at zero speed.

poWDer DynaMoMeter operating principLes
The PB Powder Dynamometers contain, as their name
suggests, a magnetic powder. The electrical current passing
through the coil generates a magnetic field, which changes
the property of the powder, thus producing a smooth braking
torque through friction between rotor and stator. The Powder
Dynamometers (PB) produce their rated torque at zero
speed. The element to be tested can be loaded at standstill to
determine the starting torque.

tanDeM operating prinCipLes
Because the characteristics of the WB and PB dynamometers
are complementary, Magtrol is able to offer them mounted
in a tandem setup. Each dynamometer (WB and PB) can
autonomously operate according to its own characteristics.
An electromagnetic clutch is needed for this application
which automatically switches off at the maximum speed of
the PB Powder Dynamometer and automatically switches on
at zero speed.

2. Installation / Mounting
The dynamometer lifespan (before overhauling) may vary from a few months to a few decades,
depending on the application, but equally depending on the way it has been mounted. By mounting
the dynamometer as described in the following sections, the operating life as well as the measuring
precision of the unit may be increased considerably.
2.1Locking the Dynamometer for Transport
Dynamometers are equipped with a load cell for measuring the torque generated by the tested system
on the brake. The load measuring cell is a precision instrument which must be protected from shocks
during transport in order to guaranty the measurement repeatability. Therefore, all Magtrol WB/PB
Dynamometers are fitted with a locking system in order to protect the load cell during transport.
The dynamometer can only be used after removing that model's specific locking device. The unlocking
procedure is described for each dynamometer model in sections 2.1.1 though 2.1.5.
Note:
Caution:
All dynamometers, except the WB/PB 2.7 Series, have to be mounted
on the test bench prior to the removal of the load cell protection
device. This prevents damage to the load cell transducer during
dynamometer installation.
To
prevent damage to the load cell, the dynamometer must be
locked before moving or shipping.

2.1.1
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
WB/PB 2.7 Series
Before mounting any WB/PB 2.7 Series Dynamometer to the test bench, the load cell must first be
unlocked. The shipping/restraining pin of the locking system is found on the lower part of the brake.

WB/PB 15 Series
WB/PB 15 Series Dynamometers are fitted with a mechanical stator assembly locking device
protecting the load cell during transport. After installing the dynamometer on the test bench, proceed
as follows and refer to figure 2–5 to unlock the system:
1, Screw the nuts  on each side of the dynamometer with three turns.
2, Unscrew the nuts  on each side of the dynamometer until they touch the nuts . A
minimum clearance of 0.4 mm between the nuts  and the dynamometer locking device is

2.2
Mounting the dynamometer to the test bench
The dynamometer should be placed on a stable horizontal base plate—preferably constructed of cast
iron, steel or aluminum—in order to eliminate vibrations to the greatest extend possible. Flatness
defects should not exceed 0.05 mm. In addition, the dynamometer frame must withstand the torque
transmitted by the dynamometer without deformation.
Note:
Magtrol offers standard and custom dynamometer tables specially
designed to support the entire range of Magtrol dynamometers.
The dynamometer is mounted onto the bench by means of four screws. The size of these screws
depends on the dynamometer model. Tandem dynamometers require stronger screws than single
dynamometers. Refer to the data sheet of the corresponding dynamometer (see Section 1.2) for
additional information on the screw type and size.
2.2.1
Aligning the dynamometers on the test bench
The proper alignment of the dynamometer with the motor under test is very important. The higher
the speed of the test, the more care must be taken when performing the alignment. The maximum
tolerated misalignment depends on the selected coupling.
With high-speed Eddy-current dynamometers (WB-HS), 0.01 mm may be tolerated. With magnetic
powder dynamometers (PB) operating at lower maximum speeds, a misalignment of up to 0.1 mm
is acceptable.
2.2.2
Vibrations induced by the test bench
Vibrations generate premature wear of the bearings. Since modifying the motor under test in order
to prevent any vibration is not feasible, measures will have to be taken to forestall any damage to
the dynamometer.
In order to evaluate motors producing vibrations (for instance, combustion engines), the motors
must be mounted on a heavyweight base plate equipped with vibration mounts. By doing this, the
vibrations transmitted from the motor to the dynamometer will be reduced considerably.
Height differences due to varying motor loading must be taken into account. The vibration mounts
should not be compressed, creating a misalignment between the motor and the dynamometer. This
would affect the measurement results and damage the dynamometer.
Caution:
Operating
at the resonance frequency of the measuring chain
will severely damage the dynamometer.
47
Chapter 2 – Installation / Mounting
2.3
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
Couplings
The dynamometer couplings used with the motor under test is an important factor to take into
consideration. In fact, a coupling which is not correctly specified for the application will lead to
measuring errors and premature wear of the dynamometer.
Given the fact that the dynamometer is a precision measuring device, high quality couplings should
be used. Couplings with insufficient torsion stiffness will generate unwanted sinusoidal signals on
the original measuring signal.
The coupling must be dynamically balanced (Q1 for WB Series Dynamometers and Q2.5 for PB
Series Dynamometers). This balancing must compensate for maximum tolerated misalignment
between the motor under test and the dynamometer. For all Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometers,
it is advisable to employ a twin (dual disc) coupling clamped onto the shaft keys (as shown in the
figure below).
Figure 2–6 Couplings Using Key Clamping
By using this method, no slipping will damage the coupling or the dynamometer shaft. With small
dynamometers such as the WB/PB 2.7 and 43 Series Dynamometers, mounting takes place by
tightening onto a smooth shaft, or using a self-centering coupling with two tightening screws.
Couplings must dampen axial and radial vibration and isolate the dynamometer from vibrations
generated by the tested unit, particularly in case of gas engines. With high-speed Eddy-current
(WB-HS) Dynamometers, consult your Magtrol representative for the best suited coupling for your
specific application.
Note:
With more than 50 years of experience in the field of motor
testing, Magtrol is your best partner to determine the best suited
dynamometer for any given application.

Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
2.4
Measuring range
As with most transducers, dynamometers should be operated in the upper part of their measuring
range, between 10% and 100% of their rating.
2.5
Drag torque
Magtrol dynamometers are characterized by a low drag torque: approximately 1% of the rated torque
for WB Series Dynamometers and approximately 2% for PB Series Dynamometers. Refer to the
corresponding data sheets (see Section 1.2) for the maximum drag torque values of each model.
Drag torque (which is measured by the dynamometer) is generated by friction originating from the
bearings, the contact between the powder and the rotor unit in magnetic powder brakes, as well as
all other mechanical contacts.
2.6Tolerated radial and axial forces
Note:
Any radial or axial force exercised on a dynamometer causes
premature wear of the bearings, as well as an increase of the drag
torque.
The following table shows the maximum axial and radial forces the WB/PB Series Dynamometer
can support without being damaged:

* Only Eddy-current (WB) Dynamometers have, as an option, a high-speed version.
For WB-HS Dynamometers, the limit is lower in order to protect the high-performance bearings.
Magtrol offers, for the same reason, a specially adapted high-speed coupling.
By applying a radial or axial force on the dynamometer, the bearings are subjected to different
stresses. This hinders them from rotating freely and generates torque on the measuring line.
The side load of the measuring line is detected by the dynamometer cell. This is not an offset but a real
torque, normally measured. Thus, the zero on the electronics must not be set when the dynamometer
is mechanically coupled.
49
Chapter 2 – Installation / Mounting
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
By slightly moving the dynamometer stator backwards and forwards when the motor is stopped, the
side load disappears. If uncoupling the dynamometer makes the drag torque disappear, either the
coupling will have to be changed or it will have to be realigned with the motor.
Caution:
The dynamometer must be uncoupled prior to calibration. (Refer
Chapter 6 – Calibration for more details.)

2.7
Connecting the cooling system
Proper cooling of the dynamometer is essential to ensure a long operating life and accurate measuring
results. All Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometers* are water-cooled to guaranty the best possible
heat dissipation.
* PB 2.7 Series Dynamometers are available with (K) or without a cooling circuit.
Note:
The cooling tubes must have an inside diameter in accordance with
the indications on the corresponding dynamometer data sheets (see
Section 1.2). They must be fitted to the dynamometer using a metal
ring. Also, check for correct water flow direction.
The cooling water input is marked “Cooling water inlet” on the dynamometer housing. The other
nipple is used for the water outlet. Check for correct connections.
For more information on the dynamometer's cooling system, refer to Chapter 3 – Cooling.
2.8Protective Systems
Warning!
ALL ROTATING PARTS MUST BE FITTED WITH A PROTECTIVE SYSTEM TO ENSURE THAT THE USER,
AS WELL AS ALL OTHER SURROUNDING people and
OBJECTS, WILL NOT BE INJURED OR DAMAGED AS A RESULT OF THE MOTOR under test BECOMING BLOCKED, A TORQUE OVERLOAD, OR ANY OTHER potential PROBLEM.
The following precautions concerning protective equipment of the drive train must be observed:
• Protective elements must prevent access to moving parts (during test).
• Protective elements must cover all parts which can cause crushing or cutting, and protect
against projections of parts having become loose.
• Avoid attaching protective elements to rotating parts.
•Keep protective elements at a sufficient distance away from rotating parts.

2.9Power/Heat dissipation
All Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometers are instruments which absorb energy. They convert the
kinetic energy of the coupled rotating systems into heat.
The quantity of heat which can be dissipated by the dynamometers is not infinite. Additionally, the
dynamometers cannot resist excessive temperatures without damage. The most frequent consequence
of a too important energy supply is a premature deterioration of the excitation coils of the stator,
possibly inducing serious damages to the dynamometer and even to its immediate environment.
An excessive supply of energy over a long period can induce damages, which may remain undetected
if no detailed examination is performed. This can lead to a premature degradation of the bearing
lubricant, or to defects of the insulation of coils generating the magnetic field.
Converesely, dynamometers should never be loaded at full speed when cold. If a motor must be
tested cold, warm up the dynamometer with a different motor first.
Caution:
It
is important to familiarize yourself with the dynamometer's
ratings. Running the system outside of the limits specified in the
data sheets (see section

3.1
Dynamometer Cooling
Proper cooling of the dynamometer is essential to ensure a long operating life and accurate measuring
results. All Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometers* are water-cooled to guaranty the best possible
heat dissipation.
* Note: PB 2.7 Series Dynamometers are available with (K) or without a cooling circuit.
3.1.1
Connections
Note:
The cooling tubes must have an inside diameter in accordance with
the indications on the corresponding dynamometer data sheets (see
Section 1.2). They must be fitted to the dynamometer using a metal
ring. Also, check for correct water flow direction.
The cooling water input is marked “Cooling water inlet” on the dynamometer housing. The other
nipple is used for the water outlet. Check for correct connections.
3.1.2
Water Flow and Pressure
The required cooling water flow rate can be worked out by means of the following formula:
Braking Power [kW] · 860 [l·°C/kWh]
Flow rate [l/h] =
Outlet Water Temperature [°C] − Inlet Water Temperature [°C]
* 1 kWh = 860 kcal = 3600 kJ
The dynamometer cooling system has been designed for an open outflow and freely flowing water
without back-pressure. The maximum input pressure must not exceed 2 bar.
3.1.3
Cooling Water Consumption
≈ 30 l/kWh at Δt = 30 °C (Metric)
≈ 8 gal/kWh at Δt = 86 °F (US)
3.1.4
Temperature Sensor
The dynamometer is fitted with a sensor measuring the outlet water temperature. This sensor generates
an alarm in case of overheating.
58
Chapter 3 – Cooling
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
3.2Open-circuit Cooling Systems
In an open-circuit cooling system, the necessary water comes directly from the main water distribution
system (faucet), passes through the dynamometer, and is then disposed of (down a drain). The
advantage of this type of system is its low installation cost. This solution is acceptable if there are
no restrictions on water supply and if the available water is clean.
3.2.1
Example
The simplest example of an open-circuit cooling system is a clean water supply and flow rate regulation
by means of a tap. The dynamometer water outlet should be equipped with a thermometer and the
flow rate must be adjusted in order to maintain the outlet water temperature between 40 °C and 50
°C (resp. 100 °F to 120 °F).
Caution:
T he
tap should always remain open and running when the
dynamometer is in use.

Closed-circuit Cooling Systems
The closed-circuit cooling system uses water-to-air or water-to-water heat exchangers, or a chiller.
This system is used when the water supply is restricted or when the water cannot be used for cooling
without prior treatment/filtering.
3.3.1
Note:
It is recommended to use water specific additives to avoid
proliferation of living organisms, and to protect against corrosion
and mineral deposits.
Example
A closed-circuit cooling system simply requires a water tank in which the heat exchange will take
place. The ideal operating temperature of the dynamometer is maintained by a temperature-regulated
valve on the dynamometer cooling water outlet.

3.4cooling Water Issues
Despite the fact that water is necessary for cooling, it represents a risk. Rust, corrosion, erosion and
scale deposits have a negative effect on the functioning of the dynamometer.
3.4.1
Impurities
As a matter of fact, running water may contain dust; mud; calcium or magnesium carbonates; calcium
or magnesium sulfates; silicates; iron; carbons; sulfides or algae; and other fungi.
If the cooling water is not analyzed and treated, scale may become deposited on the inside surface of
the tubing, reducing the heat transfer and the water flow rate. A 0.5 mm thick scale deposit reduces
the cooling system tubing diameter by 30%. A 1 mm thick scale deposit reduces the heat transfer
by about 10% which, in turn, increases the dynamometer temperature.
The higher water temperature increases the speed of scale depositing. Also, the warmer the water,
the faster the corrosion and erosion. A water temperature increase of 10 °C (50 °F) multiplies the
corrosion effect by a factor of two or even four.
3.4.2
Hardness
The following table indicates the water hardness in German degrees [°dH]. The total hardness is
defined as the sum of the temporary and the permanent hardness. The temporary hardness can
be removed by boiling the water, which only takes the calcium and magnesium carbonates and
bicarbonates into account. The permanent hardness is caused by the presence of calcium and
magnesium sulfates in the water and cannot be removed by boiling. Soft water has a hardness
between 3 and 6 °dH, whereas hard water may have a hardness of more than 16 °dH.

Caution:
Never use demineralized water for the cooling of dynamometers
as this water is aggressive and leads to corrosion due to a high
content of free carbon dioxide.
3.4.3
Filtering
In order to avoid clogging of the cooling system due to sand, mud, rust or other substances, the
installation of a filter at the water inlet is recommended.
Solid substances conveyed by the cooling water should not exceed 250 microns. As a rule, the filter
should remove approximately 98% of the substances above 250 microns of diameter.
3.4.4
Controlling the Water Flow Rate
An excessive deposit of minerals may be avoided by limiting consumption to the absolute minimum
necessary for the dynamometer braking power dissipation. This may be performed by installing a
thermostatic valve on the water outlet and by adjusting it just below the cutoff temperature of the
dynamometer safety thermostat (approximate setting ~50 °C or 120 °F). This valve must constantly
guaranty a flow rate in order to get enough water flowing to the dynamometer safety thermostat.
3.4.5
Water Inhibitors
In order to prevent scale from forming in closed-circuit cooling circuit systems, it is sometimes
necessary to use water inhibitors which must be effective against rust, corrosion and mineral
deposits.
The use of strong alkaline substances or certain acids may be risky and dangerous during
manipulations. These substances can attack the different metals of the dynamometer, and may even
be toxic to the operator.
• Chromates: should not be used as they cannot avoid mineral deposits and do not protect
aluminum. Furthermore, they are acid-based, dangerous and toxic.
• Borates: should not be used as they cannot prevent deposits from forming.
• Phosphates: should not be used as they will cause algae growth.
• Chlorides, nitrates and sulfates: should not be used as they will cause corrosion.
If the available water proves to be of questionable quality, the user should contact the local authorities
to be informed about an adequate form of water treatment. Special attention should be paid to water
found in industrial areas where contained polluting substances may represent a source of potential
dangers for the dynamometer cooling system. Furthermore, water inhibitors improperly used can
have a negative impact on the environment.
62
Chapter 3 – Cooling
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
3.4.6
Condensation
Caution:
When the dynamometer is at a standstill, the cooling water must
be turned off. This reduces the level of scale deposits and, even
more important, avoids condensation.
As a general rule, condensation occurs in the dynamometer when the outlet temperature of the
cooling water is lower than the ambient temperature in the room. When using a PB Series Magnetic
Powder Dynamometer, the condensation oxidizes the powder which leads to a decrease of the
braking torque. This happens very quickly and forces the user to send the dynamometer back to
Magtrol for replacement of the magnetic powder. On WB Series Eddy-current Dynamometers, the
condensation generates rust on the internal components which rapidly reduces the operating life of
the dynamometer.

Figure 4–3 Tandem Configuration
In tandem, the unique features of each type of dynamometer brake are utilized, allowing nominal
braking torque to be applied to the unit under test from zero speed to maximum rotation. Each
dynamometer (WB and PB) can also autonomously operate according to its own characteristics.
Tandem Dynamometers are available on a number of PB/WB combinations. Refer to the corresponding
data sheets in Section 1.2 for speed and torque ratings of each tandem configuration.
4.2.1
Note:
The parametrization of the tandem dynamometers is quite
complicated. In order to get the maximum torque and to be able to
use the system at its fullest capacity, a complete Magtrol measuring
chain (as illustrated in Figure 4–3) is required.
Electromagnetic Clutch
To couple both dynamometers together in a tandem configuration, a toothed electromagnetic clutch
is required. This clutch is delivered as standard with all Magtrol tandem dynamometers.
When the speed of the PB Dynamometer is at zero, the electromagnetic clutch is engaged. Conversely,
the clutch disengages when the PB Dynamometer has reached its maximum speed. This function
is automatic when a Magtrol DSP Controller is used. (See Note in Section 4.2.)

provided by Magtrol.
Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers are fitted with two types of connectors. The WB/PB 2.7 and
43 Series Dynamometers are fitted with LEMO type connectors and WB/PB 65, 115 and 15
Series Dynamometers use MS type connectors. Additionally, the available options vary from one
dynamometer to the other. Therefore, two or three different pin configurations are shown for each
connection.
4.3.1
Power and Thermostat Connection
The PB Series Dynamometer torque depends exclusively on the excitation current, whereas the
torque of a WB Series Dynamometer is determined by both the excitation current and its speed.
Therefore, with WB Dynamometers, the excitation current must be reduced when its speed is being
increased to hold a constant torque.
To keep operating temperatures at acceptable levels, it is important to run dynamometers within
their power ratings. The breaking power of the dynamometer must therefore be regularly checked
by referring to the torque-speed-power rating curves shown in Section 2.10 of this manual or by
using the following equation:
Breaking Power [kW] =
Breaking Torque [N·m] × n [rpm]
9550
The thermostat is a normally closed contact which opens when a temperature limit of approximately
50 °C (120 °F) is reached. When this limit is reached, the excitation must be stopped.
Note:
Unlike all other Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers, the WB/PB 2.7
Series Dynamometers are not fitted with a thermostat. This function
is defeated by a short between terminal 1 and 2.

Speed measuring requires a 5 V supply. The square TTL type output signal frequency is proportional
to the speed. According to the polar wheel mounted on the system, the pulse number (per revolution)
will be 30, 60, 600 or 6000. For additional information on this item, refer to the dynamometer's
corresponding data sheet in Section 1.2.
Note:
The use of a 600-bit encoder limits the speed of the system to
10,000 rpm. If the testing application requires, Magtrol can offer a
speed sensor providing 6,000 impulses per revolution. This provides
a higher resolution but limits the speed to 1000 rpm.

5. Operating Principles
5.1Eddy-current dynamometers (WB)
Magtrol Eddy-current Dynamometers carry the designation of "WB" which stands for "WirbelstromBremse" in German (Wirbelstrom = Eddy-current, bremse = brake). Eddy-currents are circular
currents induced in conductors crossing a magnetic field. These currents generate electromagnetic
forces acting against the movement of the rotor.
In the WB Eddy-current Dynamometer, the moving part is a toothed cylindrical rotor. The magnetic
field is created by coils powered by a DC current source. The magnetic flux flows through the rotor
teeth—not the air gap—creating magnetized and non-magnetized areas within the stator. During
rotation, the rotor teeth generate Eddy currents in the stator which create a braking force. The kinetic
heat generated in this process is absorbed by the stator cooling circuit.
The braking torque depends upon the rotational speed and increases with increasing speed. At a
standstill, the torque is zero. To be able to measure a starting torque with this dynamometer, it is
necessary to block both the stator and the rotor. In this case, the dynamometer ceases to rotate and
the tested motor’s torque is integrally transmitted to the dynamometer measuring cell.
5.2magnetic powder dynamometers (PB)
Magtrol magnetic powder dynamometers carry the designation of "PB" which stands for
"Pulverbremse" in German (Pulver = powder).
In the PB Magnetic Powder Dynamometer, the magnetic field generated by a DC current passing
through the coils magnetizes the ferromagnetic powder. This powder is located in the gap between
the toothed rotor and the stator of the brake. Due to the action of the magnetic field, some columns
build up which generate friction between the rotor teeth and the stator surface.
By varying the coil current, the braking torque can be varied continuously.
5.3
WB vs. PB
Mechanically, PB and WB dynamometers are quite similar and only differ by their size and the
shape of the rotor teeth.
Fundamentally, the difference between an Eddy-current and a magnetic powder dynamometer lies
in the fact that the maximum braking torque of the later is already available at standstill. On the
other hand, the friction generated in magnetic powder brakes limits the speed of the dynamometer
at lower levels to prevent premature wear and powder dispersion into the bearings due to centrifugal
forces.
72
6. Calibration
Every new Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometer is factory calibrated. Static calibration of the zero
and torque is recommended from time to time, especially after having maintenance performed.
Note:
Do not forget to unlock the dynamometer following transport (after
it returns from overhaul) in accordance with Section 2.1 – Locking
the Dynamometer for Transport.
6.1Basic Calibration Information
Prior to calibration, the motor must be separated from the dynamometer so that the dynamometer
shaft can rotate freely.
6.1.1
Calibration Arms
Two calibration arms are delivered with each Magtrol WB/PB Series Dynamometer. These arms
are inserted into the threaded holes found on each side of the stator. See Figure 6–1 Calibration
Arm Mounting.
Each calibration arm has two grooves: the outer groove allows for calibration in N·m, the inner in mkp.
Note: Mkp is an obsolete unit of torque measurement. Magtrol recommends
calibration in N·m (by using the outer groove) and calibration weight
in kg. Refer to Section 6.1.2 – Calibration Weight.

Calibration with Magtrol Motor Testing Electronics
When standard Magtrol motor testing electronics are used in the test bench (Magtrol DSP Controller
and TSC Torque/Speed Conditioner), the calibration procedure as described in the TSC 401 Instruction
Manual should be followed. Refer to Section 3 – Calibration for dynamometer calibration.
6.3
Note:
The User's Manuals for all Magtrol products can be accessed/
downloaded from Magtrol's web site: www.magtrol.com.
Calibration using Non-Magtrol electronic control units
When a Magtrol TSC Torque/Speed Conditioner and DSP Controller are not used in the test bench,
the calibration must be carried out by using the following procedure:
1. Mount the calibration arms.
2. Adjust the zero (0) on the electronic control unit. The dynamometer shaft must rotate freely
(the motor must be disconnected).
3.Hang the calibration weight from one of the calibration arms.
Note:
Use outer groove to achieve calibration in N·m when using weight
in kg.
4. Adjust the electronic control unit to obtain the reading of the nominal dynamometer torque.
5. Move the calibration weight to the opposite calibration arm. The reading on the electronic
unit should be the same (difference <1%). If this is not the case, remove the weights and
return to step #2.
6. Remove the calibration arms.
6.4
Calibration of Overload Protection
Note:
WB/PB 15 Series Dynamometers do not have overload protection.
Calibration of the overload protection for WB/PB 43, 65 and 115 Series Dynamometers is performed
at the factory. However, it may be necessary to periodically check or confirm the protection of the
measuring cell by following the procedures outlined in Sections 6.4.1 through 6.4.3.
Note:
This does not apply to WB/PB 2.7 Series Dynamometers as the
overload stop is fixed and requires no setting.

Magtrol WB/PB Dynamometers
Caution:
For overload calibration of WB/PB 43, 65 and 115 Series
Dynamometers, readings of 150% of the nominal torque are only
possible if the measuring system operates without saturation.
With a complete DSP-controlled Magtrol system (WB/PB Dynamometer, DSP Dynamometer Controller, DES Power
Supply and TSC Torque/Speed Conditioner), the TSC unit must
be connected to the TSC2 input of the DSP unit (as the TSC1
input cannot measure a value of more than 130% of the nominal
torque).

7. Maintenance and Repair
7.1
Maintenance
Just like any rotating equipment, Magtrol dynamometers require periodic maintenance. It is recommended
that maintenance be performed every 5000 hours of normal operation. This corresponds to the theoretical
life of the bearings and the time after which Magtrol recommends their replacement. (Bearings should
be replaced as soon as they start showing signs of wear.) Higher wear occurs when the dynamometer is
operated outside its optimal working conditions. This is especially true when the dynamometer is operated
at excessive rotational speeds, which results in the generation of axial and radial forces on the bearings.
Various indicators alert the user as to when maintenance is required:
• The dynamometer can no longer reach its nominal torque (particularly true with magnetic
powder dynamometers)
• The water tubing is clogged causing a temperature rise
• The residual torque is out of specification.
When the bearings generate noises, it indicates that maintenance is overdue. At this stage,
measurements have already been distorted and the entire dynamometer unit is subject to vibrations,
reducing its operating life.
7.2Repair
In case of a defect, please refer to both the Warranty and Service Information located at the back of
this manual. Whether you are directed to ship your equipment back to Magtrol, Inc. in the United
