This has been largely driven by the increased use of multiple O2 sensors. This includes four more pressures. Battery voltage can be recorded and we can work with a variety of third-party sensors. Along those same lines, last year we upgraded 20-year-old data systems for several customers. This enables them to operate their older-style control panel data system through a computer and take advantage of most all of the features in our Power Pro Data Acquisition software. At some later date they can update electronics and enjoy the rest of the current features and technology. We have also made a few small changes with hardware and the Track Master frame.

And as long as I am talking about our team, Stuska Dynamometer is proud to congratulate all Power Test employees for winning the Wisconsin Manufacturer of the Year award! May 2013 3/29/13 10:30 AM
