The Himmelstein Advantage,


Best Real World Accuracy of Any Torquemeter, Torque Sensor or Torque Transducer


 S. Himmelstein and Company has been designing and manufacturing the world’s best torque measurement transducers and instrumentation since 1960.  Our products offer significant advantages over competitive models, enhancing their overall performance under real world conditions, not just in the calibration stand. 

Highest Available Mechanical Overloads


 Select from 200%, 400%, 500% and 1,000% overload models.  The flexibility to select sensor mechanical overload allows optimal sizing of the sensor to suit the application, even in the presence of peak torques that exceed the average running torque.  This ensures the best measurement accuracy for the application.  For assistance is sizing/selecting the proper torque sensor, please refer to our “Choosing The Correct Torque Transducer”. 

High Electrical Overrange


 All Himmelstein Torque Transducers and Instruments with high level dc analog output voltages, have significant electrical overrange (130% to 150% in most cases.).  This means that the output signal does not clip at full scale.  All rotating mechanical systems have oscillatory signals.  When operating at or near full scale, insufficient overrange on the output signal will cause clipping of the peak values and result in incorrect display of the average torque.  By offering significant electrical overrange, the Himmelstein Transducers will provide accurate measurement, even beyond full scale.  Please refer to our Technical Memorandum 20805B, “Overrange, A Crucial Rotary Torquemeter Parameter” for a more detailed discussion. 


Best Dynamic Measurements


 Himmelstein Bearingless Torque Flanges are the best choice for dynamic measurement and controlThat's because the worlds highest torsional stiffness yields wider installed bandwidth and faster installed response than any competitive device.  They also feature industries highest Overrange and greatest isolation from clamping and other extraneous loads.  Those features reduce errors from clipped torque peaks and parasitic loads.  See Application Note 221101 for the facts about dynamic torque measurements. 

World Class Temperature Performance


 Superior temperature compensation results in sensor temperature performance that greatly reduces errors caused by drive heating and thermal gradients.  This level of temperature performance allows S. Himmelstein and Company to offer Dual Range Torque Transducers with high accuracy.  Please refer to our Technical Memorandum 20804 "Torquemeters with Extended Measurement Range" to learn the benefits of Himmelstein Dual Range Sensors.
