Rotary Torque Sensor Systems Ideal for Automotive Driveline Testing



April 3, 2006, Depew, NY, USA - Rotary Torque Sensor Systems from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. are ideally designed for automotive driveline and powertrain dynamometers and other torque measurement applications that require a robust torque transducer. The TORKDISC features a telemetry system consisting of an on-board electronic module that converts torque signals into a high-speed 16-bit digital output. Rotary Transformer styles are also available that use a non-contact, maintenance-free, design that eliminates the need for replacing worn brushes, as is the case with conventional slip ring type rotating torque sensors.


Typical applications include dynamometer testing of gasoline and diesel engines, transmissions, transfer cases, differentials and drive shafts. Additional applications include torque studies on pumps, fans and electric motors. Rotary torque sensors are offered in capacities from 50 in-oz to 225 k in-lb (0.35 N-m to 25.4 k N-m) full-scale and maximum speeds to 15,000 RPM.
