VALUE FOR MONEY TORQUE SENSOR IS ROBUST AND MAINTENANCE FREE

30 November 2011

The Type 4520A contactless torque sensor from Kistler costs less than £1,500, the same as many slip-ring types, and is exceptionally robust and very low maintenance. Non-contact, frequency modulation signal transmission, used to transmit the torque signal from the rotating shaft, virtually eliminates wear leading to a long life, even in continuous use applications. A TTL speed signal at 60 pulses/rev. and an external 100% range check input are provided as standard.

Ten models are available with rated torque from 1 to 1,000 Nm each with industry standard ±10 V signal output. Class 0.5 accuracy at speeds of up to 10,000 rpm is combined with a maximum overload capacity of 150%.

The Kistler Type 4520A torque sensor range is ideal for static and dynamic torque measurement in production, quality control and research and development applications.

Kistler Group

Established in Winterthur (Switzerland) in 1957, the Kistler Group now has a worldwide presence with 25 group companies and 30 distributors ensuring prompt, local application support and short delivery times. With a staff of more than 1050, the Kistler Group is one of the world's leading providers of dynamic measuring instrumentation with a turnover of 210 million Swiss Francs (GBP 145M) in the 2010 financial year.

Kistler's core competence is the development, production and use of sensors for measuring pressure, force and acceleration. Kistler's know-how and electronic systems can be used to prepare measuring signals for use in analysing physical processes, controlling and optimising industrial processes, improving product quality in manufacturing and improving performance in sports and rehabilitation.

Kistler offers a comprehensive range of sensors and systems for engine development, automotive engineering, plastics and metal processing, installation technology and biomechanics.

 

Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff worldwide are engaged in research and development has generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric, piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems. These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor, two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for use up to 400 Deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
