General Info

The MCRT 88700V Series of Dual Range Digital Torque Transducers will accurately measure low running and high load torque without the cost and inconvenience of swapping two or more conventional torque sensors. Another important application is measuring torque when the ratio of peak torque to average torque is high. In that situation, a conventional torquemeter must be oversized to avoid damage – a process which greatly reduces accuracy. Conditions that create high peak to average ratios include starting, stopping or reversing inertial loads, torsional oscillations, and diesel and single cylinder engine/compressor drives. Additionally, when peak torques are unknown, an MCRT 88700V reduces the risk of damage from unexpected or accidental torque spikes.

These Dual Range Torquemeters have high accuracy in real-world applications, not just in the cal lab. They have the industries highest Over-range ratings, which avoids clipping real-world torque peaks and driveline torsions. Without sufficient Over-range, clipped torques will produce large measurement errors.

Each range is calibrated CW and CCW in our accredited laboratory and documented by a NVLAP approved calibration certificate certifying NIST traceability and documenting our laboratory operation and our quality management system meets ISO/IEC 17025-2005. A bi-directional rotor shunt calibration verifies the entire CW and CCW data chains. It may be invoked from switches, I/O lines or your computer.
