IFM-2 Injector Flow Meter is designed to test performance of Common Rail injectors on the test bench, replacing classical measuring glass. IFM-2 allows simultaneous measurement of delivery and back leak of single tested injector.Included injection detector enables to display flow value in relation to the number of injections. Thanks to unique technology, it is not necessary to use additional filters at the device inputs as the device is resistant to minor contamination.IFM-2 can be connected to PC computer via USB connection. The included software allows the user to visualize flow rates as well as to perform injector tests based on defined database. The user may combine up to six single measurements on one screen.
After testing the report can be printed showing tested injectors performance. It is possible to print results for whole injector set at once (up to 6 injectors).
In accordance with the standards of injector performance measurements, standard temperature of fuel (calibration oil) on test bench is 40°C +/- 2°C. However, the temperature of fuel entering flowmeter should be below 40°C. To ensure the optimum accuracy maintain oil temperature of 20-30 °C – this requires to use coolers (included).
The device is shipped with two coolers that ensures optimum measurement conditions for typical measurments of diesel injectors (recommended flow up to 200 ml/min).

IFM-2 – FAQ
I lost my software CD. How can I get the software?
The software for the device can be downloaded after prior registration and logging in to our website: https://dte.com.pl/en/my-data/. In case of using the device in a set with InEx-2 (with injector database), please contact the technical support by e-mail: email@example.com
I have a problem with installing the driver under Windows 10/11?
In the case of Windows 10/11, the system automatically installs the system’s serial port driver. To properly communicate with the flowmeter software, you must force the installation of a driver from DTE. Details can be found in the Manual bundled with the current software that can be downloaded after prior registration and logging in to our website: https://dte.com.pl/en/my-data/.
My device stopped communicating with my computer after Windows 10 update.
Users have reported instances of resetting the driver to the default serial port after updating Windows. In this case, force the driver installation again. Details can be found in the Manual bundled with the current software that can be downloaded after prior registration and logging in to our website: https://dte.com.pl/en/my-data/.
Does IFM-2 control the injectors?
The device measures the output of the injectors that need to be actuated from another source. The IFM-2 does not drive the injectors by itself. In order to build complete injector testing solution, it is necessary to have a test bench that allows to set pressure on the CR pump and provides a signal for the injectors. If you have a bench that does not support CR pumps, you can use the TCR-4 tester to control the operation of the Common Rail pump. If there is no injector control device, the ICR-4 or InEx-2 can be used to generate the injector signal.
Where can I get the injector database?
The test data for the injectors are related to the characteristics of the control signals. You should use the database of the test bench on which the IFM-2 is mounted (in case it replaces the measuring cylinders) or develop such procedures yourself for typical injectors in the case of self-made tables.
Can I test truck injectors?
The included fuel coolers provide sufficient cooling capacity for flows including injectors for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. In the case of heavy duty injectors, the fuel flow may be too high for the included cooling. In that case, consider replacing the coolers or modifying the test plans.
Is the flowmeter resistant to fuel contamination?
The design of the device allows for the occasional passing of small metal particles (e.g. filings from a damaged pump) in the fuel without adversely affecting the device. Of course, larger items may clog the tubes or measurement sensors. Chemical hazards in the form of aggressive agents added to the fuel, e.g. for cleaning injectors, are a greater threat than metal particles. When testing injection elements, use calibration oil according to ISO 4113. The oil must be changed regularly. The use of regular diesel fuel containing bioadditives in a closed cycle for a long time may damage the injection elements and the flow meter. Under these conditions, bacterial growth may occur, leading to the formation of deposits that are difficult or impossible to remove from the device, and may interfere with the measurement.
