Motorsoft (www.motorsoftmotors.com) has unveiled a dynamometer kit for teaching students and engineers the operating characteristics of various precision electric motors and electronic drives. The basic kit comes with three interchangeable test motors, including a PM dc, a 3 phase ac induction, and a PM brushless motor along with a calibrated PM dc generator as a load. All motors, except for the PM dc, are fitted with a 1,000 line optical encoder, couplings, and motor bases to enhance interchangeability.
