This high precision torque sensor is designed for both static and dynamic measurements on non-rotating applications. It is particularly suitable for torque measurements on, for instance, extremely small electrical actuating drives and micro-mechanical actuator elements, or for measuring reaction torques e.g. on micro-motors.
The high accuracy of measurement also makes this sensor ideal for use as a reference in many fields of industrial manufacture as well as laboratory research and development projects. Not containing any rotating parts, it requires no maintenance if properly used.
The strain-gage based sensor’s modular design allows precise configuration for the desired application. With the integrated amplifier option, the sensor directly supplies a voltage signal of 0 ... ±10 V that is proportional to the torque. The sensor can be configured via the micro-USB interface, providing access to, for example, a filter frequency setting, averaging, and a tare function. Measurements via USB in addition to the voltage output are available with the USB measurement option. The sensor comes with the DigiVision software for performing measurements and data archiving, with drivers additionally available e.g. for LabVIEW. Integration into custom software is possible via DLL.
The burster TEDS option (electronic data sheet, memory chip with sensor-specific data) allows rapid configuration of compatible evaluation units (instrumentation amplifier, indicator, ...).
