The Power to Control the Engine of the Future

LHP provides leading engine dynamometer labs with the full-authority Engine Control System based on the powerful and reconfigurable National Instruments compact RIO platform. Leverage the expertise of LHP to control your engine today and have the freedom to create the engine of tomorrow.

Software Options

Create and deploy controls algorithms in the development toolchain of your choice:


A completely open source LabVIEW-based controls
solution is provided with the LHP ECS.

Example H/W Configuration for Engine Control 

  • 1.33 GHz Dual Core Intel Atom, 4 GB nonvolatile,1 GB DDR3 memory
  • Kintex-7 FPGA
  • All I/O necessary to control most engines up to 8 cylinders    Control piezoelectric or solenoid direct injectors
  • Operate up to 55°C (70°C optional)
  • Robust enclosure and connectors
  • Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • Power supply options for 9-30 VDC or 120VAC/240VAC power

I/O Channels: 


  • 12 solenoid injector (120V 40A unipolar)OR 8 piezo injector (175V 30A unipolar)
  • 8 Port fuel injector / low side driver (4A peak/1A hold)
  • 8 Low side drive (engine sync or PWM options) (1.2A)
  • 2 H-Bridge drivers (6A peak/3A hold) with feedback sensor inputs (e.g., throttle control)
  • 8 VR or Hall inputs (e.g., engine position sensors)
  • 8 Engine sync TTL outputs (e.g., smart coil spark driver)
  • 5 Analog inputs with pull-ups (resistive temperature)
  • 15 Analog inputs with sensor supply (ratiometric sensor)
  • 2 Wide-band O2 channels (Bosch LSU 4.9 or LSU 4.2 compatible)
