A shock dyno is the “must have” tool for any suspension or shock business. At Penske Racing Shocks, EVERY shock built is dyno tested before shipping to ensure its performance. Shock dyno’s have come a long way, and the software accompanied with the dyno is just as vital to providing accurate data.
Like our shock business, Penske Shocks is focused on providing the best equipment along with the best customer support. Our s-Link design is a design that took place over a two year period. Countless hours of R&D and field testing were completed before final sign off and production started.
Penske Shocks has taken another step in our goal to being the market leaders for dyno production and support. Penske Shocks welcomed Charlie McKinney to our team in October of 2020. If you have worked in the racing industry, and have used or purchased a shock dyno, chances are you have heard of or worked with Charlie from his days with Roehrig. Penske now offers on-line technical support, servicing, calibration, and part sales. Penske Shocks is also available for onsite repair and calibration.
Immediately you will notice small but very important details. The s-Link (slider linkage) dyno has a necessary on/off switch along with a LED light that shows the user when they dyno is under power.
Along with being silent and pleasing to the eye, s-link is also the best performing dyno available. The standard 2hp dyno can pull -1000lbs + zero point up and reach a maximum speed of 18 inches per second. This is more than current 3hp models available from other manufactures. In its standard configuration, it can read a maximum of 2000lbs based off its load cell. This is all possible because of the efficient design. Direct drive (gear box) with helical cut gears ensures minimal backlash. Direct drive maximized your motors output, meaning you can get higher performance out of a small package.
Fixed stroke is also recommended, why? When you run a fixed stroke, it allows us to properly tune the motor and driver to ensure your getting the best and most efficient performance. By doing this we can greatly reduce noise and increase consistency.
One major component to producing a great dyno is the software. While there are many options, it was imperative that we try meet the needs of the racing industry. This lead us to choose MTS and Shock6 software to drive the hardware. MTS and Shock6/Roehrig has been the industry standard in shock dyno’s for decades. What does this mean? All current Roehrig files that you may have are accessible on the s-Link dyno! New for 2020 is MTS Shock6.9 software. The new Shock6 software is Windows 10 compatible.
Along with your dyno, you will receive one year free on-line tech support through our TeamViewer app. This makes software and PC tech support a breeze. This is a $500 value, free with purchase of dyno.
