Torque Sensor Industry Information

Torque Sensors

Torque sensors measure the rotary movement of a force or system of forces that cause rotation in an engine. They gauge the torque transferred along the drive-line axis at the place where the sensor is positioned. These sensors measure torque by either sensing the shaft deflection caused by a twisting force or by sensing the effects that the deflection causes.

Applications of Torque Sensors

Torque sensors are used to determine the amount of power in an engine, motor, turbine, and crankshaft within the automotive, aerospace, marine, industrial machinery, and engineering industries. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles all measure torque using these sensors. They also act as quality control for factory machinery and measure the metal removal rates, the calibration of torque, peel forces, and friction.

Torque Sensor Design

Torque sensors are also known as torque transducers and sometimes as torquemeters as well. Like load cells, torque sensors sometimes use strain gauges as their sensors, although this requires them to have a power outlet for the strain gauges, as well as a program hooked up to interpret the electrical signals the strain gauges puts out. Since this can be complicated, there are other methods as well, listed in the paragraph below. Piezoelectric sensors and magnetoelastic sensors can also be utilized as the central piece for torque sensors.

Types of Torque Sensors

There are two main types of torque sensors used today: reaction and rotary sensors. Reaction sensors measure both static and dynamic torque by using a stationary or non rotating transducer. Static torque is simple and easy to measure because it requires no angular acceleration, but dynamic is more difficult because it requires electric or magnetic transfer from the shaft to a static system and involves acceleration. An example of static torque would be the torque a car produces while driving down a highway at a constant speed. Because there is no acceleration, it is not considered dynamic. Rotary sensors use moving transducers used to measure torque. They are mounted on the actual shaft, but because of this, they may cause space concerns. That is why they need to be well designed so that they do not impede the production of the engine. Common outputs for torque sensors include analog or modulated frequency, switch or alarm, analog voltage, serial, analog current, and parallel.

ATI Industrial Automation to Break Ground on Operations Expansion, Creating 275 New Jobs

APEX, N.C. April 13, 2017 -- ATI Industrial Automation will break ground on the expansion of its corporate and manufacturing headquarters in Apex, NC, on Friday, April 21, at 4:00 PM. This expansion-the largest in ATI's 28-year history-will increase the size of its Apex facility to 185,000 square feet. "Global demand for our robotic end-effectors continues to grow," said ATI Chairman Keith Morris. "This latest major expansion, our second in just four years, will help us to meet the growing needs of our worldwide client base."   ATI formed in... Read More About This
