Hi,

 

maybe I missed a functionality, or a way to setup it, but I would like to setup the brake to do some "road simulation" or warmup before the dyno runs.

 

I was thinking about an option to use "brake control" with roller rpm, or speed, instead of engine rpm.

 

the second thing I am missing, is an automatic coasting after a run: I know it could be somehow difficult to setup, but sometimes I miss a run by not going over the "end run rpm" due to little wheel slip. Sometimes I can manually force the coasting, sometimes not. 

 

thanks

@matteozanusso, for warmup you can do Manual mode, or RPM vs Time. You can also use the sequencer. 

On the coasting:
In practice it does go into Coasting mode when you press the clutch, even if you did not reach end RPM. If you reach the end RPM it is just a bit faster to turn off the brake; it turns off immediately while it otherwise uses the PID to regulate it off. You don't need to manually force the Coasting, it will still work.

Super!

 

Is there a writeup about the use of the sequencer?

thanks

The Brake sequencer is pretty simple, it is just Brake % vs time. You can for example start with 10% brake, then after 10 seconds change to 20% then after 30 seconds change to some other percentage etc. It is actually more a demonstrator for how a brake plugin can be created.

Hey Tuners!

YourDyno version 3.2.139 (beta) was released today. Here are the highlights: 

  • Live graphs in the main window 😎! See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5lXFlYo6t8
  • Ability to manually scale axis in the main graph areas. Right click on the axis to bring up the Manual scaling window, or right click in the graph and click "Set Scale manually". The previous "Set scale to default" was renamed to "Auto scale"
  • A few other smaller cleanups

Note that this is a rather large change internally, so upgrade when you have a little time to check that everything is ok.

As always, let me know of any issues!

I love the live graphs and being able to lock my own settings on graphs!!!!

What about the ability to automatically control the throttle based upon an graph similar to the rpm curves.

I currently use a servo motor to operate the throttle and would be great to be able to link into the yourdyno system and automate once the run button is pressed.

Thanks,

Dave

Hello, a "rpm and throttle % controlled" VS time would be great to do brake in the engine after a full rebuilding. it can be be a road or track simulation.

Do you think i could be done with a plugin?  (maybe using the second output to use a stepper motor to control the throttle)

I just bought a complete yourdyno kit to use with a truck telma retarder. i will do an engine dyno and it would be great to brake in the engine on the dyno (better than doing it on road, it's boring and not all the customers are following the instructions).

Your product is great, looking forward to receive and use it.

Thank you for your answer

Hi

 What is the best way to add comments to a run?

I tried to add comments on the run page but I get a message 'Changes are not done here. Make changes in the table in the main window'

If I add comments after the run is saved then the comments don't stay with the run, even if I save the run again after adding the comments

 

Thanks

@oxracing, you enter the comments in the main window in the Comments column. This can be done any time after the run is complete.

It is stored in the csv file and will appear again when you read back the file. I just double checked, and it works just as it should. Can you explain again the issue you see?

@admin 

Thanks for the reply

I've just checked again and if I save the run it stays with the file as you say.

I don't know what I was doing before but I have tried this already and it did not work but it's all good now! 🤷🏼‍♂️

@admin Looks like I spoke too soon.

I tried again on another run, at first it did not work, then when I tried again the system crashed. I have retried a few times and it alternates between not saving the comment or crashing the system.

Attached screen shot of error message

I’ve asked Jostein in the past and he said he’ll work on it. A bit different approach though, I’ve opted to have an option to make markers, so you can compare a specific point in the graph.

 

for instance max numbers could be only 10hp apart, while somewhere in the rev range it could be 50hp. So you can add a marker at that point of the graph clearly showing the difference between the two (or multiple)

How about this,does this work now..? this must be the most important feature of them all

I see this dyno test and I like the ideea with dotted line for first run and full line for second run. Also, can you make it to show max power and torque like in this image.

Best regards Jostein 

Good work

This would be super nice, also when moving the line the HP nr should shown,and the diffrence would be nice to see

Hi.

Is there any plan for dual screen setup or even 3 screen? one only for customer view with maybe just live graph and splash screen? 

Regards Sigve

Hi, dual screen is supported. One for the Gauges and one for the Graphs. Is that what you meant?
