Reaction torque sensors are often used as auditing and monitoring tools. This application utilizes the FUTEK TFF Series to measure the reaction torque produced by a miniature electric DC (brushed/brushless) or AC motor.
- In this application, a reaction torque sensor is mounted to the electric motor with the motor shaft passing freely through the torque sensor.
- For optimal performance of the reaction torque sensor, the free end of the sensor, as pictured, must be fixed.
- The Series measures the reaction torque/ torsion moments created by the miniature electric motor during operation.
- These measurements are then amplified with GM40 or GM62 for use with PLCs and data acquisition devices or streamed to the PC with LCV-USB3
In addition, with the IDA100, data can be viewed in real time and logged by operators using Lorenz Test and Measurement Software.
