The compact torque sensor model 8655 with standard square is contactless constructed. The torque is recorded by the torsion of the shaft using the strain gage principle. Thanks to the inductive and optical transmission of the signals, the sensor is maintenance-free, the signals are digitized directly on the shaft and made available by the evaluation electronics as a voltage signal or via USB. The direction of rotation can be seen from the potential of the output voltage, clockwise rotation corresponds to positive output voltage, counterclockwise rotation the voltage level is negative.
The standard square enables simple integration into existing systems or devices, additional components such as couplings are not require.
To record the speed and angle of rotation, the sensor can optionally be equipped with an incremental disc with 400 increments. This speed / angle signal is available as a TTL output signal.
The free DigiVision software is available in connection with USB, alternatively drivers for LabVIEW and DASYLab are ready for download.
Connection cables in various lengths, metal bellows couplings and mounting brackets are available for integration in customer-specific systems.
