S. Himmelstein and Company Introduces Ultra-Precise Shaft Torque Transducers

S. Himmelstein and Company, the leading manufacturer of torque sensors, torque transducers, and torque meters recently introduced the Ultra-Precise Series MCRT® 79800V Dual Range Digital Torque Transducers and the Ultra-Precise MCRT® 48800V/49800V Digital Torque Sensors to provide the best torque measurement accuracy available at an economical cost.

The MCRT® 79800V Dual Range Digital Torque Transducers accurately measure low running and high load torques without the cost and inconvenience of swapping conventional sensors. They offer high measurement accuracy, fast installed response, high mechanical overload and electrical overrange and ease of installation. Both high range and low range outputs are always present.

Output signals are provided as analog and digital simultaneously. A wide range of capacities are available from 40 lbf-in to 375,000 lbf-in. Accuracy grades are ±0.03% on the high range and ±0.05% on the low range of full scale combined non-linearity and hysteresis, and have world class temperature performance. Mechanical overload of 1,000% (low range) and 200% (high range) offers a safety margin in the presence of high startup torques or large torsional oscillations.

Electrical overrange of 150% avoids clipping of real world torque peaks and driveline torsionals reducing potential for errors in the average torque measurement. They output ±10 Volt or ±5 Volt analogs of torque, speed (an option) as well as engineering unit data via a resident RS232/422/485 com port. Operation is fully bidirectional and measurements are valid to zero speed. In addition, the MCRT® 79800V will safely and accurately measure normal torques when large transients are present, avoiding the necessity of over-sizing a conventional torquemeter at the cost of measurement accuracy.

The MCRT® 48800V/49800V Series MCRT® 48800V and 49800V Series Digital Torque Transducers offer extreme measurement accuracy with fast installed response, and high mechanical overloads and electrical overrange. Output signals for torque, speed and horsepower are provided as analog (±5 or ±10 Vdc) and digital over RS232 serial port. Available capacities are from 2.8 to 42,000 Nm.

They are available in two accuracy grades: ±0.04% and ±0.02% of full scale combined non-linearity and hysteresis, and have world class temperature performance. Mechanical overloads of 200% or 400% offers a safety margin in the presence of high startup torques or large torsional oscillations such as produced by Diesel engines. Electrical overrange of 150% avoids clipping of real world torque peaks and driveline torsionals reducing potential for errors in the average torque measurement. Output bandwidth is 1 kHz with 13 user selectable low pass filters.

These ultra-precise units are easy to use with included interface software that allows fast PC setup and re-configuration without re-calibrating. All are calibrated CW and CCW to rated load in our ISO 17025, NVLAP accredited laboratory (NVLAP lab code 200487-0).

They are well suited for a broad range of applications including both performance and endurance testing of engines, transmissions, drive systems, pumps, motors, servo motors, gearboxes, actuators, etc.

S. Himmelstein and Company has been offering innovative torque measurement solutions since 1960, manufacturing a full line of shaft, spline, flange, pulley, wheel and reaction torquemeters, and other torque measuring instruments.
