Torque measurement system with non-contact digital telemetry

September 08, 2011 // By Julien Happich
The TMS 9250 torque measurement system from Honeywell use non-contact digital telemetry technology to deliver unprecedented precision and performance wirelessly, enabling flexible configurations and a simplified installation. The need for precision torque measurement spans industries and applications as monitoring torque is critical in the design and/or testing of axles, drive trains, gear drives, gas and electric motors, transmissions, pumps, propulsion systems, and gas and steam turbines.

End users and manufacturers of dynamometers and test stands can now digitally measure torque with improved results and the desired customization features to meet their ever-changing needs. Completely digital, the TMS 9250 wireless design enables higher integrity of the torque data capture through higher resolution, higher sensitivity, faster response, and no mechanical interferences. The result is a more accurate indication of the actual torque being experienced, plus an increase in reliability. The modular design can easily be adapted or customized to fit into many different types of test stands to meet specific test application requirements. Multiple mechanical configurations are available, including DIN, SAE, integral coupling, shaft-to-shaft, and custom mounting. Software accommodates multiple calibrations on the same sensor, allowing a single sensor to be reconfigured in a variety of characterization arrangements, “on the fly” so that the test is not interrupted.
