Application Summary

Reaction torque sensors are often used as auditing and monitoring tools. This application utilizes the FUTEK TFF Series (OEM torque sensors) to measure the reaction torque produced by a miniature electric DC (brushed/brushless) or AC motor using a torque sensor amplifier.

Products in Use

One Reaction Torque Sensor (TFF Series) paired with Instrumentation (IAA  series analog amplifier or the IDA100 digitally configurable
amplifier).

How it Works
  1. In this application, a reaction torque sensor is mounted to the electric motor with the motor shaft passing freely through the torque sensor.

  2. For optimal performance of the reaction torque sensor, the free end of the sensor, as pictured, must be fixed.

  3. The TFF Series measures the reaction torque/torsion moments created by the miniature electric motor during operation.

  4. These measurements are then amplified with IAA Series or IDA100 for use with PLCs and data acquisition devices or streamed to the PC with IDA100 over USB.

  5. In addition, with the IDA100, data can be viewed in real time and logged by operators using FUTEK’s SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software.
