Rotary Torque Transducers

Series PC9000 Rotary Torque Sensors are widely used in the fastener assembly market to verify the performance of hand and power torque tools. These strain gage-based transducers are fitted on the output drive of a power tool and measure the torque applied by the tool to the fastener on an actual assembly. This measurement provides important information about tool shut off and can assist in establishing specifications for proper assembly.

When equipped with an optional angle encoder, the rotary torque transducer can also measure the angle of fastener rotation which is an important indication of joint integrity. Torque-angle transducers can provide the data to draw torque vs. time or torque vs. angle plots that can help analyze problematic joints and determine appropriate tightening strategies. They are also a key component of a threaded fastener torque tension testing machine.

Rotary torque transducers are available in capacities ranging from 32 ozf-in to 18k lbf-ft (0.23 to 25k Nm), and fit most popular drive sizes.


Highlights:

  • Measure torque only or torque & angle
  • Industrial-rated for power tool and fastener testing applications including pulse tools
  • On-board auto ID technology simplifies sensor setup and calibration when used with RS Technologies digital instruments
  • Industry-Standard Transducers compatible with all RS Technologies Fastener, Joint Analysis, and Tool Certification Equipment, and most conventional strain gage readout instrumentation
  • 2 mV/V output with matched shunt Calibration

 

Applications:

  • Power Tool Calibration & Performance Verification
  • Threaded Fastener Testing
  • Bolted Joint Troubleshooting
