Land & Sea’s Data Acquisition Electronics, Controls, Accessories, and even free (Do-It-Yourself) dyno plans allow you to build your own system or bring an older analog engine or chassis dynamometer back to life. Our state-of-the-art DYNOmite data collection and engine control computer and software deliver a price/performance ratio formerly unheard of in professional dynamometer test systems. 

“Build your own dyno or give an existing unit a new lease on life.”

Blow off the cobwebs and restore old analog dynos to life with a state-of-the-art DYNOmite data-acquisition and control-system upgrade.
Blow off the cobwebs and restore old analog dynos to life with a state-of-the-art DYNOmite data-acquisition and control-system upgrade.

Typical electronics kits include DYNOmite data-acquisition computer with from 3 to over 112 channels (with or without optional LCD display and pushbutton handheld interface), full-bridge strain gauge equipped electronic load cell torque transducer, AC power supply/recharger, data wiring harness, engine temperature thermistor, and protective carrying case.

Free – Do-It-Yourself Plans are available (with the purchase of any of our data-acquisition systems) for building your own low-cost dyno frames, stands, test-cells, etc.. Additionally, we offer prebuilt subassemblies along with most major hardware components, links to useful Tech-Talk articles, and plenty of expert advice. Since Land & Sea actually manufactures our dyno equipment on-site, we have the machinery, the personnel, and the experience to help you with your own custom manufacturing or rebuilding jobs. Please feel free to give us a call for more information.

Our DYNOmite data-acquisition computer automatically captures your dyno’s true torque, RPM, elapsed time, etc., while calculating Hp at up to 1,000 readings per second (that’s per channel, not just a total). The board’s ECU can even be set to automatically apply Standard SAE correction factors for air temperature, barometric pressure, and relative humidity. This eliminates running engines to death while trying to manually record all the data. Handheld DYNOmite models display results on their LCDs and can print to an optional portable battery-powered printer. No prior computer knowledge is required to start testing and analyzing data like the pros.

DYNO-MAX “Pro&rdquo dynamometer control software screen.DYNO-MAX™ Software - the heart of your dynamometer investment. Since the software is the dynamometer's most important component, be sure to choose wisely! DYNO-MAX creates a full engine dynamometer lab console on your PC. Features include: real-time trace-chart graph display, adjustable visual and voice limit warnings, pushbutton controls, user configurable analog and digital gauges, plus incredibly powerful post-test data analysis tools. (Click here for a full list of features.)

Integrate your own Windows PC by using DYNO-MAX with appropriate automated electronic load and throttle control hardware options for keyboard dyno control. Without special programming, operators can easily execute even complex race simulations and engine test cycles. No other dyno software adapts and expands so easily to virtually any level of testing sophistication.

Affordable expansion upgrades (up to 112+ channels) include: fuel flow and airflow turbines, brake specific fuel consumption, brake specific air consumption, air/fuel ratio, exhaust gas temperature, engine temperature thermistors, air temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, sparkplug thermocouple kits, RTDs, pressure transducers, 0-5 volt auxiliary inputs (for many wide band air/fuel ratio sensors, knock sensors, etc.) and outputs, high-speed cylinder pressure mapping, and both servo load and throttle control options. Like the DYNOmite itself, these upgrades won’t eat your entire testing budget.

Available torque sensor options include full-bridge (temperature-compensated) strain gauge S-beam load cells, high resolution pressure transducers, and wireless rotary-torque transducers. All of them are maintenance free and feature our semi-automatic pushbutton zero offset calibration. Conversions can usually retain the system’s original torque sensor and display in parallel with the new electronics.

Forget inaccurate paper and pencil logging, throw out that DOS-based software and get professional one-person operation. Owners of older analog Clayton, DataMite, Dynojet, Froude, Go Power, K & O, Maha, Maxwell, Mustang, Performance Trends, Sport-Dyno, Stuska, Sun Road-a-Matic, SuperFlow, TAT, etc. brakes, software, or rollers can now take advantage of most DYNOmite and DYNO-MAX features without purchasing new absorbers or engine stands.

Advanced standard features including: “Smart Record™,” real-time data dampening, spike filtering, playback data averaging, atmospheric correction, auto-zeroing, instant playback, and integral rev-limiter.  

DYNO-MAX control functions include: water brake, hydraulic, AC, or eddy current absorber load control, throttle position torque control, and switched relays to control fuel pump(s), engine starter, cell ventilation blower, water supply valves, N2O injection, etc. Choose from “canned” cycles, or customize tests using its advanced custom automated test editor tool.

Electronic load and throttle control options – just push buttons to select the test RPM, or set a sweep rate and the DYNOmite’s own advanced PID algorithm runs the whole show – all hands free.

Inexpensively update that obsolete analog dyno for the new millennium. Computerization eliminates the need for two people to “try” and monitor the operation of your engine testing. It also eliminates observer bias from the results. Today’s front-runners are already scrutinizing every single line of their own dynamometer’s data; do not be left behind!

Convert motor, transmission, or chassis dynamometers! The DYNOmite and DYNO-MAX team includes features to allow optimizing them for almost any type or power train testing. Whether you are restoring some old analog emissions rolling-road, building a new transmission dyno, measuring an electric or air-motor’s performance, upgrading a speedometer calibration tester, or secretly testing your own space-age transportation invention… we are ready to help you. A DYNOmite conversion can bring full load control and road-load simulations to your inertia dyno, or cylinder pressure mapping to many 1960 vintage water-brake systems. It does not matter if you are monitoring 100 or 128,000+ RPM shaft speeds. We offer ¼ to 10,000 ft-lb load cells, and support multi-channel data collection rates from 200 to over 200,000 Hertz. If you are upgrading a dyno, you have found your solution. Watch one customer's outboard powerhead dyno video!

Doubles as a race recorder to capture all your standard dyno data - at the track. Our array of “on-vehicle” sensor options include: forward and lateral Gs, distance, MPH, MPG, shift ratio, transmission slip, ETs, 0-5 volt auxiliary inputs (for lambda sensors, shock/suspension travel, etc.), wireless rotating driveshaft torque and Hp, OBD-II data, and GPS location (maps the vehicle’s position via orbiting satellites). Radio modem telemetry is even available to broadcast track data back to your race pit crew’s laptop.
