Popular digital torque transducer targets lower torques.

HBM has extended its T12 series of digital torque transducers with models for the lower measuring ranges of 100 Nm and 200 Nm. This means that, for example, measuring friction performance can benefit from the high accuracy and dynamic performance of the T12.

Typical application areas for the digital torque transducers are mainly in the automotive industry for engine, gear or chassis test benches. The T12 also delivers precise and secure measurement results when testing electric motors, pumps and generators.

The torque transducers can also be used, depending on size, for torques of up to 18,000 rpm. The accuracy class is 0.03 over the entire measuring frequency range of 0 Hz to 6 kHz.

Data transmission between the rotor and stator is implemented with the T12 dialog. This enables secure and error-free measured value acquisition and transmission, even under difficult ambient conditions, for example, electromagnetic interference or fluctuating temperatures. Digitalization is implemented with a high resolution of 19 Bit.

Connection to existing automation systems, such as PLCs, is particularly easy with the T12. The measurement data are available via either a voltage or frequency output or via the fieldbuses CAN-open and Profibus DP with up to 4,800 measured values per second output.
