on an industrial fan
The task is to test the motor performance of an industrial fan used for air purification and ventilation. Similar to testing an engine, this test setup is designed to measure the torque, speed and power.
The 8661 torque sensor is permanently mounted between two couplings: between drive and rotor. These couplings are designed to correct vertical and angular misalignments and differences in length. The torque and speed measurement signals are available to the user for further processing. The optional USB interface can be used with the application-oriented DigiVision software for analysing the measurements. In addition to capturing, visualizing and archiving the measurement data, this software can also be used to calculate the mechanical power.
