S. Himmelstein and Company’s MCRT® 84000V Bearingless Digital Torque Transducers measure torque with high accuracy. They are now available with a best combined non-linearity and hysteresis error of less than ±0.01% full scale.  The MCRT® 84000V is simple to install and you can select from 10 units of measure without recalibration. Coupled with the many standard critical features of these units, the result is a sensor that delivers the best possible torque measurement accuracy, even under real world conditions.

Standard features include high mechanical overloads of 200% or 400%, offering a mechanical safety margin in the presence of high startup torques or large torsional oscillations. Substantial overrange of 150% to 300% on the electrical output signals avoids clipping of real-world torque peaks and driveline torsionals reducing potential for errors in the average torque measurement. An extremely stiff sensor element design yields the widest installed bandwidth and fastest installed response over any competitive model. Wide allowable tolerance in the positioning of the stator relative to the rotor simplifies the user’s installation and protects the equipment from rotor to stator contact due to vibration or thermal growth.   Torque Output signal is provided as analog ±5 or ±10 Vdc, digital over RS232/422/485 serial interface and frequency modulated (FM).

All torque transducers from S. Himmelstein and Company are noise-hardened against electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated by other Variable Frequency Drives, ISM transmitters and other industrial noise sources, further enhancing their real world performance.

S. Himmelstein and Company has been offering innovative torque measurement solutions since 1960, manufacturing a full line of shaft, spline, flange, pulley, wheel and reaction torquemeters, and other torque measuring instruments. All units are shipped with an NIST traceable, ISO 17025 accredited calibration certificate. Laboratory accreditation provided by NVLAP (NVLAP Lab Code 200487-0).
