Automatic Torque Transducers offer analog/digital outputs.

MCRT® 48200V Series Digital Torquemeters are compact, non-contact devices with full scale ranges from 25-10,000 lbf-in. They output ±10 or ±5 V analogs of torque, as well as engineering unit data via resident com port. Calibration values, scaling, and units of measure are stored in nonvolatile memory and automatically loaded on power up, with 10 units supported. Internal signal...

Intelligent Extruder Plans Its Own Growth

A bench top extruder developed at Bradford University is able to collect data about its own operation and to determine a wide range of characteristics of the material with which it is working. Most of the intelligence is provided via a digital TorqSense torque sensor, which uniquely collects data via a radio signal rather than being hard wired to the extruder, and passes it onto a computer for...
