New Range of Rotary Torque Transducers

Applied Measurements are pleased to announce exclusive UK distribution of a new range of brushless rotary torque transducers from German manufacturer ETH Messtechnik.  ETH were chosen for the very high performance capabilities and exemplary quality of their torque sensors which will compliment our own existing range of rotary and static types. Initially we have introduced five torque sensors to our range, here is a brief summary of each model: DRBK – A compact and low cost shaft type torque sensor available with capacities from 0-5Nm up to 0-1000Nm, maximum speeds up to 22,000rpm and a ±5Vdc conditioned output signal.  A pulsed speed/RPM output is optional. DRFL – A compact, high performance shaft type torque sensor with an accuracy class of […]

Rotary Wireless Torque Transducers Use Battery-Powered 2.4GHz Telemetry

Applied Measurements are proud to introduce the DTDR-F rotary wireless torque transducer, a novel design that expunges stator coils and inductive transmission systems from the design brief in favour of a cutting edge, battery-powered 2.4GHz wireless telemetry data acquisition and transmission system. The DTDR-F design is based on the DTD-F torque transducer, a flanged device designed for use in static and quasi-static torque measurement applications, with modifications to allow the incorporation of a pair of balanced Delrin housings, one containing the telemetry acquisition and transmission module and the other containing a 3.6V high capacity lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery that is recharged in-situ. The DTDR-F is intended primarily for use in rotating applications at speeds of up 6500rpm where a direct, in-line […]

Custom Torque Sensors Now Available on Standard Lead Times

A UK manufacturer of torque sensors is offering custom designed static/reaction torque transducers on similar lead times to its standard units, with only a small premium on the standard list price. Applied Measurements Ltd, based in Aldermaston, is able to design and manufacture custom torque sensors to meet any customer requirement, including different flange diameters, unusual sizes of square drive, special sealed versions and shorter, more compact designs. According to Peter Lewis, Managing Director at Applied Measurements: “Many manufactured products require fatigue testing to ensure that they can operate for a guaranteed minimum period of time.  An accelerated life test, for example, may be carried out on a drive shaft to determine the torque limits.  The fatigue testing can sometimes […]
