Looks like you are hard at work, such a nice looking engine room ! Did you go to school or receive training in engineering? Those are some complicated installs I would guess. Looking forward to seeing the first tests 👍Update of the engine dyno room:

Now we get serious! Tiles are bored, no way back 😉

This is the amazing glue dowel, earth quake safe at least, but we won't have this, so it will hold the engine in place.

Elastic under plates (15 mm rubber material) under the trusses. Almost no body sound from the engine bracket into the bottom, so to say decoupled.

The small one got also it's shaft protection shield, painted in the almost same color as the brake frame.
Today we worked on the flow bench:
View attachment 103720
- made a flow chart of signals and energy to organize the pin connections right
- made a 90° elbow to hold the flat screen arm and fixed it on the mobile flow bench
- made a 3rd Bosch Profile platform for the 3rd pump, we weren't satisfied with the one attached to the bench frame
- made the cut out for the elbow plate and some other adaption and extensional functions, which need to be addressed on the cover plates of the bench
The elbow will get painted for camouflage. The operator will start the mini pc with a needle sized stick through a bore hole of the right wall and stand in front of the flow bench, setup the valve lift and adjust for now vacuum by hand (closed loop vacuum control next upgrade, the algorithm need some fine work). On the flat screen the operator will see all info of the ProfiLab: pressure of vacuum, atmospheric conditions, corrections according ASME, flow and so on.
Next the harness of the flow bench will be finished and the mini PC will be started, ProfiLab to be installed and energy cabling has to be pinned correctly. We have now a 240 V to 12 V module, which will supply the current to run the flow sensor.
