Torque measurement with greater flexibility

The Type 4550A KiTorq system is designed to add greater measurement flexibility for the highly dynamic torque parameters found within manufacturing-related machinery and equipment, such as electric motors, gearboxes, pumps, motors, compressors, combustion engines and engineering test benches. The KiTorq system features an accuracy class of 0.05%. It also offers fully digital transmission, with a signal bandwidth of up to 10 kHz and integral speed measurement of 60 pulses per revolution, for maximum dynamic response and precision. The bearing- and slipring-free design of the KiTorq system consists of the company’s Type 455x rotary torque measuring unit and the Type 454x stator torque evaluation unit. The robust and maintenance-free KiTorq system is available with a choice of measuring range from 500 to 3,000 Nm. Kitorq rotors capture torque measurement data using strain gages, and the high-speed scanning rate means that torque parameters can be measured with high degrees of accuracy and precision. — Kistler North America, Novi, Mich.
