Large Capacity Square Drive Torque Sensor
Sensor Developments introduced a line of sensors that measure rotating torque of equipment that uses square drive interfaces. The sensors allow for quick attachment to the equipment when monitoring fastening applications that use nut runners or pneumatic wrenches. The devices measure torque and angle in a single sensor. Large capacities include from 5,000 in.-lbs. to 20,000 in.-lbs. (565 kN to 2259 kN), in addition to standard torque ranges from 50 in.-lbs. to 2,400 in.-lbs. (5.6 N-m to 271 N-m). Angular measurement is achieved with a 1,024 ppr optical encoder for standard capacities, and a 1,500 ppr optical encoder for large capacities. All sensors include an ISO-17025 accredited calibration certificate.
