Series 1580/1585 Education Kit
This product does not include the safety enclosure temporary. The enclosure will be back in stock on January 2021.
Need to build a lab or course based around motor or propeller theory? The Series 1580/1585 education kit can help. This bundle contains everything you need to allow your students to test and record propulsion system data, and even includes motor and propeller samples.
Choose one of two test-stands: The RCbenchmark Series 1580 or the Series 1585. The Series 1580 is the basic dynamometer that measures both thrust and torque and is rated for motors and propellers generating a thrust of up to 5 kgf (11 lbf). It has an electrical power measurement limit of 35 V and 45 A continuous. The Series 1585 is our premium dynamometer with enhanced power measurement of up to 50 V and 55 A continuous, a higher sampling rate and a 5 V output to support ESCs that don’t have their own built-in power source (BEC).
In order to enhance the security of the test environment, each kit also includes an enclosure to protect operators. It has been proven safe for propellers with a diameter of no more than 16” and can retain debris within the enclosure in case of an accident. Safety glasses should still be worn in the room containing the test equipment.
The kit also includes several test samples, carefully selected for their quality and representativeness. This way, you can quickly start demonstrations, courses or labs.

Tyto Robotics provides two example courses/labs which include material: a PDF for professors regarding the concepts, the operations and detailed results, a PDF for students with step-by-step tutorials and templates to fill in the results. Contact us for more information on those courses covering:
- Motor theory (Kirchhoff’s law, motor’s efficiency, Kv & Kt)
- Propeller theory (Thrust, efficiency, and flight time)
