Rotary Torque Sensors

A Torque Sensor also known as a Torque Transducer, is a transducer that measures the torque or rotational force applied to a system. Such as a motor, crankshaft, or gearbox for example. It then converts it into an electrical signal which is either displayed or stored for control purposes.

Our partner supplies two types: Reaction Torque Sensors and Rotary Torque Sensors. However, the purpose of this page is to introduce you to the Rotating Torque Version.

Our rotary torque sensors measure dynamic torque using strain gauge principles whilst the shaft is continuously rotating. Therefore, making it ideal for torsion measurement, torque auditing, in-line applications on motor testing, engine testing or any other instance where torque measurement is required on revolving shafts

Models options include Rotary Drive Torque Sensors, Rotary Hex Drive, Non-Contact Versions and Rotary Shaft to Shaft measuring 0.5 Nm up to 1,000 Nm.
