S. Himmelstein and Company has been a designer and manufacturer of torque transducers and signal conditioning instrumentation for over 60 years. With a sole focus on torque measurement, we continue to develop innovative products offering the most accurate and reliable torque transducer products available. Incorporating high mechanical overload ratings and significant overrange on the electrical output signals, allows the opportunity to maximize measurement accuracy under real world operating conditions. Extremely stiff sensor element designs product the fastest possible dynamic response. This design philosophy and focusing strictly on our strengths, allows us to offer you the peace of mind of the highest-performing torque transducer with real-world accuracy for even the most critical applications.

Signal Conditioners

Himmelstein Model 700 Series instruments are powerful, yet flexible one- or two-channel signal conditioners/displays. These instruments can be configured to interface with torque transducers, load cells, pulse output speed pickups and flow meters, voltage and current output transducers and more. High quality signal conditioning is a critical component in any sensor based measurement system for processing sensor output signals and providing clean, noise-free test data. Based on our decades of experience with strain gage based sensors, we have optimized our signal conditioning for operation with all types of torque meters and other strain gage based sensors.

Himmelstein offers the largest selection of torque ranges, output signals, overload ratings, accuracy grades and mechanical styles, so you’re sure to find the ideal non-contact torque sensors, torque measurement devices and signal conditioning instruments to suit your needs. All Himmelstein torque sensors and systems are calibrated CW and CCW to their full-scale capacity in our ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited laboratory (NVLAP Lab Code 200487-0). With Himmelstein torque sensors, you enjoy the benefits of our long experience along with the most stringent quality control standards.

How Does a Torque Transducer Work?

All our contactless torque sensors utilize highly accurate, proven and reliable strain gages as the basis for the measurement. The latest, most accurate Himmelstein torquemeters — both rotating and non-rotating (reaction) types — are digitally based. The signal from rotating types is digitized on the rotor and transmitted as digital data to the stator, where analog and frequency (model dependent) signals are created and produced along with digital data. Each torque transducer employs true bi-directional rotor shunt calibration. All signal processing is microprocessor-based; most devices boasting five microprocessors.

In-line rotating torquemeters with non-contact transfer of signal and excitation voltages, have become the method of choice for most torque and mechanical power measurement applications. Alloy steel sensing elements and built-in high immunity to noise and magnetic fields results in the most accurate and reliable sensors in the industry.

We offer several types of torque transducers to meet your measurement and application needs. For static torque measurement, choose a reaction torque sensor. For dynamic torque, select a rotary sensor. Our inventory offers a broad range of measurement capacities, overload ratings, accuracy classes and more.
