Model S033

A supplier of steering and other fluid assisted components to automotive, truck, and off-highway vehicle manufacturers needed a “special” torque sensor to perform continuous duty measurements on a hydraulic pump. The pump and the torque sensor would be operated in a temperature chamber at 300F with a hot oil mist atmosphere. In addition, the tension of the belt driving the device under test would vary causing fluctuations in the side load applied to the torque sensor. The torque sensor had to measure torque accurately up to 600 lb-in over an extended period of time with side loads up to 600 lb being applied simultaneously to the torque sensor. The solution was to design a slip-ring coupled torque sensor that would […]

T312

The T312 Universal Mount Automotive Wheel Torque Sensor is designed to be installed between the vehicle’s wheel hub and brake drum with the wheel’s tracking centre-line offset 1.5 inch.  The wheel torque sensor can be used on most vehicles with a wheel pattern of 4 or 5 bolts. Fast and easy installation is enabled by the included adaptor set which helps to attach the sensor to the user-specified drum and wheel-bolting pattern. In addition, a special wheel can be provided that will return the wheel’s tracking centre-line to its original position. A slip ring assembly interconnects the wheel torque sensor and the vehicle’s on-board instruments. Rated Capacity 900, 1700, 2260, 3390, 5650 Nm Rated Speed 3,500 rpm Nonlinearity (of R/O) […]

Tyre Test

A range of torque, force and multi-axis sensors specifically designed and calibrated for tyre testing machines where the sensor is not adjacent to the tyre being tested. In general the fixture holding the wheel and tyre is accounted for in the design, and calibration is done with a fixture which mimics the actual test machine.

Model M211-116

The Fatigue Rated Torque Sensor Model M211-116 is ideal for use in material testing machines thanks to its compact size, fatigue rating and component durability. The Fatigue Rated Torque Sensor provides a low inertial mass and high stiffness, which minimises cross-talk between the torque and thrust measurements and is resistant to the negative effects of extraneous forces in both measurement axis. The M211-116 can be used with AC carrier and DC strain gauge signal conditioning electronics. The Fatigue Rated Torque Sensor is supplied with mating connectors for straight forward installation. Capacities (Nm) 100/10K, 100/25, 10/1K Output (mV/V) 2.0 Non-Linearity (of R/O) 0.15% Hysteresis (of R/O) 0.15% Repeatability (of R/O) 0.05% Overload (of R/O) 150% Crosstalk (of R/O) <2%

Model M211-114

The Low Torque Thrust Sensor M211-114 was originally designed for use in tyre rubber testing rheometers.  However, this dual axis Low Torque Thrust Sensor is ideally suited for applications where low torque levels need to be measured in the presence of relatively high compression loads and temperature extremes. Thanks to its low cross-talk between the torque and thrust measurements, it resists negative effects of extraneous forces in both of the measurement axis. The Low Torque Thrust Sensor M211-114 features low inertial mass and high stiffness in both axes. Capacities (Nm) 6/5K, 12/10K Output (mV/V) 2 (torque) 1 (thrust) Non-Linearity (of R/O) 0.25% Hysteresis (of R/O) 0.15% Repeatability (of R/O) 0.05% Overload (of R/O) 150% Crosstalk (of R/O) <2%
