Oops! Does Dynojet ONLY make inertia dynos? I thought their brake dynos were eddy current dynos? I don't understand how an inertia dyno brake works? I guess it is a combo electric/enertia that still depends on a computer model reading?
As far as I understand it, the Dynojet dynos work with a speed sensor tracking speed/acceleration of the drum, which is a known weight.

All power and torque figures are derived by the dyno's computer from that collected acceleration data and monitored engine RPM.

Anyone know different?
