Torque transducer serves space-restricted apps

Keywords:torkdisc? rotary torque sensor? pcb piezotronics? transducer?

The TORKDISC Rotary Torque Sensor, offered by the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, is designed for dynamometer and other torque measurement applications that require a rotary torque transducer where axial space is limited.

This transducer converts torque signals into digital data which is transmitted to a non-contacting pick-up loop, reducing the risk of noise or data corruption.

A remote receiver unit converts the digital data to a high-level analog output voltage, a frequency output, and a serial digital output stream.

The compact and low weight (9lb to 10lb) TORKDISC also features high torsional stiffness and low sensitivity to axial and thrust bending moments.
