A torque sensor, also known as a torque meter or a torque transducer, is a device that measures the torque in a rotating system. Accurate torque sensors are critical to the development and testing of products such as motors, compressors, pumps or any power generating/consuming equipment.
Inaccurate torque readings can lead to product inefficiencies and shortened overall product life. These in turn can lead to unexpected expenses and downtime.
Learn how to accurately determine the perfect torque sensor for your application. After reading this paper you'll be able to:
- Understand the definitions and specifications
- Find out what features are necessary
- Determine what is optimal for high-speed and low-torque measurements
- Avoid inaccurate readings
