Kistler Instruments is launching the Type 4503B dual range torque sensor that features a wide measurement range of 0.2 to 5000Nm, high-resolution rotational speed/angle measurement and high speed ranges of up to 50,000rpm. For highly dynamic measurements the cut-off frequency of 10kHz may be user-customised by an integrated, digital, low-pass filter and the second measurement range can be flexibly scaled up to 1:10 or 1:5 of the rated torque. The new, fully scalable magnetoresistive speed and angle measurement system has a pulse frequency up to 8192 pulses per revolution, with twin tracks displaced by 90deg to provide clockwise and anticlockwise indication. A reference pulse is also available.
The fully digital, contactless signal transmission delivers a standard accuracy of 0.05 per cent with +/-0-5/10V DC signal outputs, an RS-232C serial data output and a USB interface.
According to Kistler, the robust design is excellent for use in oil mist and other contaminated environments, and overload protection of the lower range ensures reliable measurement with the greatest possible dynamics and accuracy in demanding industrial applications. The IP40 protection and anodised aluminium housing minimise routine maintenance needs in real-world, production applications.
The new Type 4503B torque sensor provides industrial users with the benefits of sensors that enable reliable measurement results and the facility for tailoring the sensor to each application. Being compatible with previous versions, the new torque sensor can be integrated into existing systems with minimal effort.
