The technology behind our torque sensors are strain gages. These gages are arranged into a Wheatstone Bridge circuit, which converts the physical, mechanical force into an electrical signal that can be filtered, displayed, and recorded for further processing. This very accurate radiometric electrical signal is proportional to the applied mechanical force.

Rotary transformer torque sensors offer high accuracies and RPM ratings. They are designed with an advanced transformer, shaft and housing to provide enhanced durability in rugged industrial applications. Rotating shaft torque sensors are available in a wide range of configurations.
Rotary Slip Ring
Rotating slip ring torque sensors are designed to mount in-line between a driving source, and an absorber, or load. They are used in engine dynamometers, electric motor testing, hydraulic pump testing, fan testing, and a multitude of other applications.
Reaction torque sensors are suitable for a wide array of torque measurement applications. They are typically used in torsional test machines, motor dynamometers, or in any application where rotation is limited to 360° or less. Due to the fact that these sensors do not utilize bearings, slip-rings, or other rotating elements, their installation and use can be very cost effective.
The TORKDISC® In-Line Rotary Torque Sensor System is a short-coupled, torsionally stiff structure that is ideal for a wide range of applications requiring high-accuracy, in-line rotary torque measurements. The sensor consists of a spring element which is torsionally loaded as torque is applied between an inner and outer mounting surface. Male and female pilots are provided to ensure good concentricity as the TORKDISC® is bolted into a driveline. Torque is transmitted by friction created between the mounting surfaces of the TORKDISC® and customer-provided mounting fixtures.
