FUTEK’s Shaft to Shaft Rotary Torque Sensor - Non contact offers a unique solution for torque auditing applications. The shaft torque sensor (aka shaft torsion sensor) is available in a wide capacity range and utilizes strain gauge technology. FUTEK's TRS Series is also available with a TEDS / IEEE1451.4 option.
Rotational sensors (or dynamic torque sensor) are utilized in applications where the torque measurement must be taken at a spinning shaft, engine or a stationary motor. In this case, the transducer must rotate in-line attached to the shaft. A rotary torque transducer is fitted with a slip ring or wireless electronics to transmit the torque signal while rotating (non-contact sensor).
Rotary Torque Transducers are frequently used as testing/auditing tools for motors, torque measuring tool, turbines, and generators to measure rotational torque. A shaft-to-shaft Rotating Torque Sensor can be also utilized for feedback control, monitoring torque, and analyzing the efficiency of test stands and for torque measurement of rotating shaft using strain gauge.
