Digital torque transducer interfaces directly with PC software

February 17th, 2014, Published in Articles: EngineerIT


Elexsys-086-03-14Lorenz Messtechnik has developed a digital torque transducer which interfaces directly with PC software to log and record torque, speed and angle measurements. The DR-3000 series of rotating torque transducers are available in capacities from 0,5 to 5000 Nm, and are supplied with traceable calibration certificates and free PC data logging software. Founded in 1985, Lorenz Messtechnik operates as a family-run company in Afldorf, Germany, specialising in the manufacture of torque and force transducers, as well as signal conditioning equipment. The Lorenz product range includes sensors for a wide variety of applications, including static and rotating torque transducers with various mounting options, such as flange, shaft, and hub-type sensors. Uses for torque measurement spans across a number of industries, from analysing motor torque efficiency in test beds, monitoring assembly forces in automated processes, or even measuring viscosity in quality monitoring applications. Elexsys supplies the entire range of Lorenz sensors and amplifiers, and is the sole representative for Lorenz Messtechnik in Africa.
