General Info

The MCRT 28000T Series Torque Transducers are available in capacities from 25 lbf-in to 4,000,000 lbf-in with overload ratings of 2X full scale. When installed between a driver and load, the transducer will measure static and dynamic shaft torque and speed (optional). A strain gauged stainless steel shaft senses torque and cancels bending and thrust. Robust, ferrite free rotary transformers connect the gauges to noise immune carrier amplifiers. They don’t generate noise or wear, are immune to magnetic fields, noise, vibration, lubricants and other hostile environments.

They are available in either shaft or flanged style configurations. Shaft end torque transducers are less costly than flanged models and can be either floated or foot mounted. Flanged models are much shorter and can be used when axial space is limited or when the highest shaft stiffness is needed.

Himmelstein’s unique Option G technology that hardens the torque transducer to EMI generated by IGBT based adjustable speed drives is available as an option.

These models require strain gage, AC carrier style amplifiers capable of providing 3 – 6 volts rms at 3 kHz ±10%.
