Overview

DynaVibe Classic
"The Affordable Dynamic Prop Balancer"

The DynaVibe Classic is an economical, state-of-the-art dynamic propeller balancer designed specifically for the aircraft industry. The DynaVibe Classic displays the magnitude and phase of propeller vibration allowing precise weight adjustments for balanced and smooth engine operation.

Attention: DynaVibe Products may not be cancelled or returned.
  • Economical - including:
    • Dynamic Balancer
    • Accelerometer with 30 ft cable
    • Optical Pickup and Reflective Tape
    • Carrying Case
    • No hidden costs or additional items to buy!
  • Accurate - Reports RPM, Vibration Magnitude, Vibration Phase Angle
  • Results - Reduce vibration levels to reduce wear on engine components and instruments. Enjoy a smooth flight!
Why balance?
A properly balanced engine installation offers a number of advantages over unbalanced equipment. The most significant advantage is in the longevity of components associated with the power plant. In many cases high vibration levels have lead to premature failure of critical engine components. Engine accessories, engine mounts, firewalls, and instruments are also susceptible to vibration damage and premature failure.

Standard VS Rotorcraft Version:

The rotorcraft version is the same as the aircraft version with additional features:
  • The rotorcraft version includes an extra accelerometer to reduce accelerometer position movements between flights.
  • The rotorcraft version includes push-to-talk switch activation of the averaging button, to allow your hands to remain on the controls.
  • Note: The rotorcraft version also works on propellers

NIST Option NIST is the National Institute of Standards and Technology: an agency in the Technology Administration that makes measurements and sets standards as needed. The NIST traceable option is available for those that are working on certified aircraft.

Important Info
  • The helicopter version will also work for fixed-wing aircraft.
  • There are no physical differences between NIST and non-NIST. The only difference is that the NIST unit comes with a certificate of calibration showing that it has been compared to a NIST standard device.
  • One year full warranty
  • NIST calibration is required annually for certified aircraft/rotorcraft.

Q&A

Q: Can the DynaVibe be used on geared prop installations?

Yes. It actually works very well on geared assemblies since the geared drive puts the engine vibration frequency at a different frequency than the prop vibration frequency. This makes it easier to isolate just the prop vibration.

Q: Will the DynaVibe work on a 3 blade prop?

Yes. The number of blades on the prop is irrelevant in the balancing process.

Q: Can the DynaVibe be used on rotorcraft?

Sure! The rotorcraft version of the DynaVibe Balancer includes an additional accelerometer and remote averaging button. Note that we're not rotorcraft experts so we can not offer technical support for tracking and balancing a rotorcraft other than how to operate the DynaVibe itself.

Q: Can the DynaVibe be used with turboprop and radial engines?

Yes. Everything focuses on the prop assembly. It doesn't matter how the prop is driven. We have many customers using the DynaVibe on turboprop aircraft. Regarding radial engines, the orientation of the cylinders is cause for concern since vibrations from combustion are in the same direction as the prop vibration. However, we've had several customers use the DynaVibe on aircraft with radial engines and it worked well.

Q: How do I mount the accelerometer and optical pickup?

Due to the variety of engines, we're not able to supply mounts to fit every configuration. You will need to build a fixture to bolt the accelerometer and optical pickup to the engine. Typically, the mount is bolted using one of the case bolts. The accelerometer is mounted on the bracket in the vertical direction, and the optical pickup is pointed toward the prop, near the hub.
