Dyno Placement
The first step to installing your Dynojet
Dynamometer is to decide where you want to
position the Dyno in your shop. Do you want to
drive the vehicle into the shop forward, or back it
in? Do you have equipment or tools located in
your shop that would be more convenient to use
based on the placement of the Dyno? There are
two basic methods to position the Dyno in your
shop.
Method 1

comprised of 4 interconnected modules:
System Expansion Connector
Atmospheric Sensing Module
RPM Module
Dynamometer Input/Output
Module
CPU Module
Atmospheric Sensing Module:
The atmospheric sensing module measures
absolute pressure, air temperature and relative
humidity. These measurements are used by
WinPEP to correct power and torque
measurements to standard atmospheric conditions
according to a DIN, SAE or other formula.
The green LED glows when the atmospheric
sensing module is receiving power.
The flashing amber LED indicates the module
processor is operating properly.
Revision C 11/16/00
Document #98226100
Master
2-1
RPM Module:
The RPM module receives and processes signals
from up to 2 inductive pickups for measurement
of engine RPM. Each input has an automatic
gain circuit to compensate for a wide variance of
ignition systems.
The green LED glows when the RPM module is
receiving power.
The amber LED flashes when an RPM signal is
detected. A steady flash rate, proportional to
engine RPM, indicates a good RPM signal.
These connectors are the inputs for both primary
and secondary inductive pickup clips. Either
input may be used with a primary inductive
pickup or a secondary inductive pickup on a
single ended coil. Both inputs can be used for a
wasted spark ignition.

CPU Module:
The CPU module contains a 32-bit processor
which acquires data from the expansion modules
and communicates to the main computer running
the WinPEP software. The processor queries the
expansion modules to determine their identity
and capabilities.
The green LED glows when the CPU module is
receiving power.
The blue LED is lighted when data from the
modules is being acquired and saved.
One of these connectors is used to communicate
to the main computer. The 9-pin receptacle (left)
connects to the PC’s RS-232 serial
communications port. The 8-pin modular

Installing Dynamometer
Now that you have the Dyno unpacked, you may begin
the installation of the Dynamometer.
Preparing Pit For Dyno
Step 1
Your Dynojet Car Dynamometer is designed to sit
on three anchor bolts cemented into the floor of
the pit. Thread one jam nut (1" UNC nut) on each
of the three anchor bolts in the floor.
Step 2
Thread one leveling nut (1" UNC nut) on one of
the three anchor bolts. Place a flat washer on top
of this nut.
Step 3
Adjust this leveling nut so that the distance from
the top of the washer to the top of the pit is 48
3/ " ± 1/ " (123 cm ± 0.4 cm.) (Shown on
8
16
the next page).
Revision B 5/16/00
Document #98219100

Step 4
Thread the remaining two leveling nuts (1" UNC
nuts) and washers on the anchor bolts. Use a
bubble level or transit to adjust the leveling nuts
so they are level with the first leveling nut. Use
the first leveling nut as a reference for the others.
Warning!!
Do not level all three nuts by measuring
down from the top of the pit to the top of
each leveling washer. The Dynamometer
must sit level for correct operation.

of 1 5/8". Clean the cuttings and debris from the
hole.
