These robust torque sensors provide the accuracy and reliability needed to verify performance, safety and quality of miniature rotating components. Their outstanding performance is achieved under real world conditions, not just in a calibration laboratory. They boast industries highest Overload and Overrange ratings which avoid failure and errors found in competitive units when torque peaks and torsionals are clipped and from unintentional handling abuse.
Measuring Low Torque Values
High Overload is especially important at the lowest torque ranges which are particularly vulnerable to handling damage. For example, the 10 ozf-in capacity devices (0.071 Nm) have a 1,000% Overload rating which is high enough to protect them from most abuse. That rating is inherent in the element design; it’s not created by a deflection dependent shunt that will inevitably fail during dynamic torque variations.
These sensors use cutting edge strain gage technology. Sensed torque is digitized on the rotor. Digital signals, immune to noise and transmission path variations are passed to the stator without physical contact. At the stator they are processed and output in both analog and digital form. Conditioned Torque, Speed, and Power scaled in engineering units are output along with analog data. Valuable processing capabilities are also provided in a single compact, economic package. No need to write software or add hardware, these sensors are ready to operate straight from the box.
A documented, accredited bi-directional ISO/IEC 17025/2017 calibration is furnished. A remotely actuated bi-directional, true rotor shunt calibration check function is also standard. Other features include 1 kHz bandwidth, 13 selectable signal filters, 33 selectable Units of Measure, 7,800 times/second Power computations, fast Max/Min capture, remote zero, cal and tare, etc. Five ranges from 10 to 200 ozf-in (0.072 to 1.41Nm) are stocked. Two accuracy grades are offered; Standard Code N and Enhanced Code C. Combined Non-linearity and Hysteresis is 0.1% for Code N and 0.05% for Code C Devices. All models have Titanium Shafts and Stainless Steel Housings.
