The system is used in conjunction with the transducer sets CT 400.16 and CT 400.17. Each of the sets consists of a pressure transducer and a TDC sensor. It allows pressure measurements to be carried out in the cylinder head of an internal combustion engine and is designed for the CT 400.01 and CT 400.02 engines. The data is transferred to a PC for further processing. The software produces p-t and p-V diagrams, and also displays the average pressure and the indicated power output. The system consists of a software and a measuring amplifier for the pressure transducer and TDC sensor.
