Default Where can I find a Robitronic dealer ?

Looking to purchase the windows version for the Robitronic Pro-Master dyno.

Does anyone know where I can get this in North America?

Thanks

EddieO is a dealer, although he does not have any in stock. I too, would love to see a North America web site with more info, screenshots, pricing, and options for purchasing this dyno.

I tried to contact Robi through a couple of Email address's I found posted here and on their website but I never got a responce. I would think if they went through the expense of making a windows version and offer a free trial version they would want to make it easy to purchase a license... but I guess I am wrong

Yeah, it's pretty sad. They are also lacking good info on their web site like:
What are the power supply requirements?
What is the interface cable to the PC?
What kind of settings can be set for the tests (amps volts, etc..)
Screenshots, etc...

I think I navigated all planet earth on the net and found no dealer or reseller of the software.

Did you try the Robitronic website? This is the link for software downloads although I am not sure what the license agreement is for them: Robitronic Software.

If that does not help, try contacting Robitronic directly using the "Contact" button at the top of the page.

Hi Tonyv, did that and still waiting for an anser.

The software download on the site is a demo with limited options.

Tony.... I to have emailed Robi on their contact page with no response. The free downloaded software has a link to purchase a license but it doesn't work. I guess they are not interested in taking our money... funny... I thought a business would want to sell their product

Ok, I have sent Robert a direct e-mail with a link to this thread. I don't know if they are closed for the holidays so it may be next week before I get a response.

No power supply, only a 12V 17AH lead-acid battery. (As stated in the manual )
Inface cable -> serial cable (COM calbe, RS232 whatever you call it) I heard it also works with a COM-> USB convertor but I haven't tried it.

You can set both the max. amperage the motor can draw as well as the voltage, upto 8V.

My mails were answered pretty quickly by Robitronic, maybe they are closed for holidays or something.
