Torque measurements

using a dual-range sensor in a test setup

  • Extremely fine 0.09° angular resolution
  • Axial load
  • Bidirectional torque measurement
  • Rugged design
  • Sampling rate up to 1 kHz


The task is to measure the static and dynamic torques in a test setup for a fan. An 8661 torque sensor, and specifically the dual-range model, was selected for the task, because not only can it measure the torque of the rotor drive in widely-spaced ranges at two speed levels but it can also provide extremely accurate readings.


  • Static and dynamic torque measurements
  • High angular resolution
  • Rugged design using durable and low-friction sensor bearings
  • High sampling rate because of the different operating states
  • Precise measurement of clockwise and anticlockwise torque


The 8661 torque sensor measures the rotating and static torque at two positions. A torque/speed/power calculation is performed for the rotating torque. The optional USB interface can be used with the application-oriented DigiVision software for analysing the measurements. 
The reactive torque and rotational angle are measured for the static torque. The dual-range model of the 8661 torque sensor is available with a choice of range factors (1:4, 1:5 and 1:10) or a custom factor. Dual-range sensors allow measurements in an additional measurement range which is narrower but has high measurement accuracy.
