Throughout our two decade existence, we’ve had the opportunity to work on a great number of Torque Sensor applications for both reaction and rotary type sensors. Throughout this time we’ve also seen incredibly bright engineers make incredibly unwise decisions when implementing their sensor systems. So we hope that with these guidelines, engineers and technicians can learn and avoid some of the common mistakes made.
Proper care of your Torque Sensor
Similar to our Load Cells, Torque Sensors are also extremely sensitive when applying force during your application. Thus, proper handling and installation will be essential in order to get the most accurate outputs. Here are some useful tips to consider:
Reaction & Rotary Torque Sensors
Selecting the right type of application for your reaction type Torque Sensor is very critical. Reaction Torque Sensors do not rotate, they can only be used up to 360 degrees of rotation without having the cable to begin wrapping around the body. If your application requires more then one revolution or measurement of speed, this would require our Rotary Torque Sensor.
If choosing a Rotary Torque Sensor, make sure you follow the basic guidelines.
