Analogue & Digital Outputs
02 November 2012
The new type 4503A torque sensor from Kistler Instruments is designed to meet the demands of testing at high speeds in both production quality control and development.
Typical applications include testing of electric motors, generators, drive performance, measurement of transmission or spindle drive friction, at a manual workstation or in net- worked, automated production cells.
Available in fourteen measuring ranges from 0.2 to 20Nm with a rated speed of 50,000rpm and 50 to 5,000Nm at 30,000rpm, all with an integrated speed sensor output of up to 360 pulses per revolution. Both analogue and digital outputs are provided by the integral, digital signal conditioning system making the new sensors ideal for use in laboratory, development, production or quality assurance applications.
The option of two, switchable ranges, with the second range being either 1:10 or 1:5 of the rated torque, allows precise measurement of both peak and operating torque with the one sensor.
