TECAT Performance Systems has released the WISER 2030-S, the first version of the company's wireless torque sensor to feature shunt calibration.

The WISER 2030-S will simplify instrumentation verification for users while allowing them to check calibration of the system in the field.

TECAT's WISER systems are the smallest, lightest, and most power-efficient solutions available for the measurement of torque, acceleration, pressure, and temperature. The WISER Model 2030-S is comprised of three subsystems. The remote unit consists of the data capture electronics connected to Micro-Measurements strain gages, a transceiver, and a long-life battery. The base unit plugs directly into a PC USB port and houses an antenna, transceiver, and up to two analog outputs. The WISER Data Viewer software is used for system configuration and calibration, live monitoring, and data logging. The WISER 2030-S enables positive and negative shunt calibration with two independent shunt calibration legs using 100 kO resistors.
