This high-precision torque sensor can be used to perform both static and dynamic measurements on non-rotating parts. The internal and external square drive designs for the mechanical adapter make this sensor especially easy to fit in existing or new screw-fitting applications.
Quality assurance and monitoring of screw-fastening tools are just two applications that can take full advantage of sensor features such as USB port, built-in amplifier and side-load absorbing bearings.
With no rotating parts, this sensor needs no maintenance when used correctly.
Available accessories include mounting brackets and flange adapters, which enable quick, easy and practical integration of the sensor into existing or newly developed setups and test benches.
The strain-gauge based sensor’s modular design allows precise configuration for the desired application.
With the integrated amplifier option, the sensor directly supplies a voltage signal of 0 ... ± 10 V that is proportional to the torque. The sensor can be configured via the micro-USB interface, providing access to, for example, a filter frequency setting, averaging, and a tare function. Measurements via USB in addition to the voltage output are available with the USB measurement option. The sensor comes with the DigiVision software for performing measurements and data archiving, with drivers additionally available e.g. for LabVIEW. Integration into custom software is possible via DLL. Examples can be found on our website www.burster.com.
The burster TEDS option (electronic data sheet, memory chip with sensor-specific data) allows rapid configuration of compatible evaluation units (instrumentation amplifier, indicator, ...).
