How to measure torque of a motor | Torque Testing Stand | FUTEK

Application Summary

How to measure torque of a motor? Rotary Torque Sensors are frequently used as auditing tools for motor torque testing in motors, power tools, turbines, and generators.


Products in Use

One Rotary Torque Sensor (TRS Series) paired with Instrumentation (IPM650, IHH500 or USB520).

How it Works
  1. FUTEK's TRS Series is an effective tool for motor torque testing/auditing, feedback control, monitoring torque, and analyzing the efficiency of test stands.

  2. In this application, the TRS Rotary Motor Reaction Torque Sensor is coupled between an eddy brake and motor.

  3. As the motor rotates, the TRS  Motor Torque Sensor measures the torque produced by the motor in response to the load generated by the brake.

  4. FUTEK developed certain models of the TRS Series with built-in encoders. These encoders measure the angle/speed produced during this test.

  5. Torsion measurements can successfully be monitored on a digital display, such as FUTEK's IPM650 Panel Mount Display or IHH500 Intelligent Hand Held Display, or streamed to a PC using FUTEK's USB520.

  6. The USB520 is the ideal data exchange solution for systems that require translation of rotary torque encoder readings, such as angle and speed. Its compact and robust design also makes the USB520 fitting for this type of industrial application.

  7. Applying FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software to this test platform will allow the operator to live graph and data log the results.
