ADL Control System is now in Production: On-Site
installation and Training Recommended.
This is a Simple but
Very Major UPGRADE for Froude, Stuska®, DTS,
SuperFlow®, AVL, Go Power, Schenck, and many more, that
clearly outperforms the high dollar dyno packages and speed controls.
We needed to complete this
Proper water outlet for the Stuska® dyno before we could begin
production of the ADL system (and the reason for the long delay).
This is a significant improvement and allows the ADL system to work
properly and handle more power. We provide a Simple Table to set this
valve so it shouldn't be too hard to get it Right. The more idiot
proof you make a good product the better. (please no Silly-cone).
This Outlet is also ready to add the Stage 2 Valve system when its
needed for advanced Load simulations.

The ADL Control system is Not a Speed control. This system is
Superior to any dyno speed controls we have ever seen, at any cost.
The Key feature of the ADL system is a
Smart Load that's Smooth and Natural and very stable. Imagine your
engine is powering a vehicle climbing a steep hill, or grade. The ADL
System controls the engine speed by changing the Grade or slope of
this simulated hill. Its a very natural simulation and
enhances your 'feel' for when the engine is 'not right'. If the
engine is running the same then it will reach the same RPM when
climbing the same LOAD or Grade setting. Sweeps are also very natural
and start by Setting a LOAD or Grade to hold a start RPM at a fixed
throttle setting. For a Sweep, this Grade is slowly Reduced to sweep
Up (or Increased to sweep Down). So then Imagine that you are in this
vehicle on a sustained grade and then the hill starts to slowly
flatten out. The engine picks up RPM in a smooth and natural way (as
long as the engine is running smooth). The RATE
control knob sets how Quickly this Grade changes when sweeping
Up or Down, and can range from seconds to minutes. If you start at a
Low RPM (hi Load) and start an Up-Sweep, the engine smoothly
accelerates Naturally as it comes up on the cam, just as you would
experience in the real world. Each sweep, or run 'up the hill', is
very repeatable and predictable. Any sweep rate change is primarily
due to the engine's ability to accelerate.
Tests can be done at any
throttle setting. Set at a fixed cracked throttle to simulate
At startup, and at low idle speeds,
there is no Grade and just a slight engine load. As you increase the
throttle, the Grade increases progressively until you reach a
balanced RPM at a set throttle position (full or partial). If the
engine is repeatable it will reach the Same RPM each time for the
same throttle position. Any time you pull back the throttle to an
idle the Grade automatically flattens out to a slight road load.
Another Key Feature is that you have
an enhanced sense of how well the engine is running,
much more than you had with your hand valve, and certainly better
than with any speed control. If you make a change to the engine that
increases its performance it will reach a higher RPM at the same
throttle setting. If the engine has a problem it will not reach the
expected RPM and you can see immediately that there is something
wrong. Note that Speed Controls, besides being erratic, will run an
engine to destruction, sometimes even before you even detect
something is wrong.
Included is an optional RPM
HOLD Mode. It is a simple speed control that is intended for
engine/injection mapping and will hold any set RPM from 1,000 to
12,000 RPM in precise 100 RPM increments.
An extra added feature aids in
warming up the engine. In this mode the load is cycled to vary
the RPM automatically. You should never let the engine run at a
steady speed for warm-up or break-in because of possible destructive
to 6 Weeks ARO.
