converting Froude FO209 water brake
- I tried to find our more specification on the " Group C XJ220 Jaguar " V6 jag twin turbo engine. Mainly the torque/RPM range they operated in from light throttle to wide open throttle (WOT) ? to see how the engine and f209 worked injunction with each other!
For my understanding and expiriance the full barke power is in the range from 7000-16000rpm
I can easy brake 1000NM at 5000RPM
There is a valve on inlet side but that look like an simple openining valve to me.
In the manjual only the oultlet valve was describted
Ok , does the f209 factory manual have a torque power graph curve in it ?
What is the water supply requirement for the f209 ? volume and pressure ?
Newton-meters to Foot-pounds formula
ft-lb = Nm X 0.73756
And vice versa is
Foot-pounds to Newton-meters formula
Nm = ft-lb / 0.73756
1000Nm = 737.56 ftlb
I'm a foot pound (ftlb) person , what is the maximum torque the f209 can absorb ?
Maybe Torque Nm (lb.ft) = 1,270 (940) ???
Udo , if or/and when you dismantle the outlet valve assembly can you take some pictures and post them please. Or do you already know and can describe the shape and size of the outlet valve ? Thankyou.
I know in your first introduction post you gave a vague discription of the outlet valve!
Here I need your help, how can I calculate the force that needed to operate the throttel blade style valve
I do not dimalting the outlet valve it is good working and never touch a running system 😉
In the maual no details about brake power/rpm but what is more poroblem to me is thet my dyno comes with the EH70D controll system from factory and so there is no description for calibration. I the text there was noted for calibraton see chatpterX.x.xx but there is missing in my manual. So I hve no picture of the calibration arm. It will be very helpfull when I get dimensions of the calibration arm ore the brake housing to build a own
Hi Udo , thank you for those pictures. What strain gauge/load cell/pressure sensor does the f209 dyno have coupled to the stator housing body of the dyno absorber to its chassis housing originally from froude consine ? Is it visible OR hidden under covers ?
Thats a very interesting drawing of tbe water outlet butterfly valve shape.
I tried to make out heads&tails out of the graphs you posted but i was perplexing way to much about them cause the ( x , y ) plains aint 100% clear.
As far as you don't have a calibration arm and weights, i'm supprised they obviously were not passed onto you when you purchased the dyno.
Don't even think about buying it from froude the calibration arm and certified weights will cost you a fortune.
Just find a suitable spot on the stator housing around the shaft flange bearing area should be threaded holes around the circumstances and fabricate a calibration arm and some weights of known value the centre of the dyno shaft is you zero referrance datum fulcrum point.
Make the arm as long as you want knowing the precise length of it.
What strain gauge/load cell are you planning to attach to the f209 dyno ?
Keep the informatin updates & pictures coming. Would like more of the pics of the dyno. Thanks
Does you workshop manual have any data about calibration details of the dyno ?
there was no instructions in manual beacuse the notice with the electronic steering unit it was not nessesary i twas calibrated from factory.
I have build my own calibration arm and build a conterweigt that I moutnt on opposide side to neutralising the weight of the arm.
I have accses th calibrated weights when I got them I can calculate the length of the arm. The instrument for tork is still working only the controll of the valve is defect.
Hi Udo, Are you going to be re_using the F209 genuine BLH C3P1 1000lb compression canister Load Cell you posted the picture of?

You can zero out the arm in the load cell setup when setting up the calibration in the software.
In the picture you posted of the load cell mounting points, those three holes in the top load cell mounting bracket to the stator housing are ideal for a calibration arm location to affix and remove.
I see you asked a question on another post about the original reluctor speed sensor on your F209 dyno . What electronics are you going to use to converting an analogue sine wave signal to a digital square wave signal ?
They have lot usefull converters
yes I will use the orginal load cell that is still mounted
Hi Udo , how's the covid19 pandemic in your country going , hope you're safe and well.
Is the Heenan&Froude F209 up and running with yourdyno controller?
Did you endup using the stepper motor & driver with feedback system ?
Thanx and keep safe.
Sorry for long delay but that project but healthy problems cured now and I motivated to work further with that
How is your conversion working?
to many projects and so less time.
I still working on the problem with the Spartan WBO but hopfully next week I will test motor and dyno
