HOW TO MEASURE POWER and TORQUE WITHOUT A REAL chassis DYNAMOMETER?
PowerScan is a usb device produced by Auto Consulting SAS to measure the power and torque of the vehicle through the acquisition of real-time data from the OBD port. Its operation is simple and the software will calculate the results automatically.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR CALCULATING THE POWER?
Powerscan requires a vehicle equipped with the OBD port, a stretch of road in the plains for carrying out the test and the overall weight of the vehicle.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN POWERSCAN AND a CHASSIS DYNAMOMETER?
Comparing the results of a 4wd chassis dynamometer braked with those of the PowerScan we found at most a difference of 3% on the results. So we can consider Powerscan a very precise instrument, and much cheaper than a test on the chassis dynanometer. Usb version, without Bluetooth and without GPS.
