S. Himmelstein and Company has been a designer and manufacturer of torque transducers for 60 years. With a sole focus on torque transducer products, our goal has always been the most accurate and reliable torquemeter measurements and performance, and we continue to achieve that today. We ensure the most accurate torque sensor readings in the industry by offering the highest available mechanical overloads, the highest electrical overrange and the most accurate dynamic measurements. By reducing errors, building for consistency and focusing on being the best at what we do, we 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 output transducers and more. A signal conditioner is a key component that ensures a clean input so that a torque transducer can deliver a strong and reliable high-quality output signal. Thanks to decades of experience working with strain gages, our signal conditioners are specialized for optimal interface between strain gages and torquemeters.

All Himmelstein torque sensors and systems are calibrated CW and CCW to their full-scale capacity in our accredited laboratory (NVLAP Lab Code 200487-0). With a Himmelstein torque sensor, you enjoy the benefits of our long experience along with the most stringent quality control standards.

How Does a Torque Transducer Work?

All our 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.

Inline 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, mechanical overload ratings and more.
