Reaction Torque Sensors are frequently used as auditing tools. This application is utilizing FUTEK’s TDF Torque Sensor to verify the precision of a torque wrench (torque sensor calibration).
One Reaction Torque Sensor (TDF Series) paired with Instrumentation (IPM650, IHH500 or USB Solution) for calibration of torque sensor.
FUTEK’s TDF Series is an efficient torque calibration tool to use when auditing torque wrenches and torque transducer calibration.
In this application, the TDF Reaction Torque Sensor is fixed to a mounting plate and coupled to a torque wrench using a male/female adapter.
As the operator ratchets the torque wrench up and down, FUTEK’s TDF Sensor will measure the torque being applied.
These measurements are sent directly to a paired instrument. Depending on instrument selection, the operator can either view the data on a digital display or stream the data directly onto a PC.
If the data shows any anomalies, the torque wrench may be in need of a torque sensor recalibration to meet its intended spec.
