Torque transducer ensures precise results over measurement range

Feb. 10, 2017

Marlborough, MA. HBM Inc. has introduced the T12HP digital torque transducer. The T12HP supports dynamic measurements in a test stand and provides unprecedented precision, particularly in terms of temperature stability, the company said. Temperature influences have virtually no impact on the measurement result.

The T12HP meets the market requirements for increasingly flexible and efficient test cycles—for example, in the development of ever more energy-efficient motors. Due to the T12HP’s integrated high basic accuracy, users can run more detailed analyses in any partial range from the full measurement range—as if looking through a magnifying glass—and different measurement tasks can be performed using a single characteristic curve. Switching to a second measurement range is a thing of the past with T12HP. Moreover, test-bench setup times are reduced, and utilization as well as the number of tests can be increased.

CAN, PROFIBUS, EtherCAT, and PROFINET interfaces ensure easy integration of the T12HP torque transducer with different test-stand concepts. The T12HP measurement flange is installed directly in the drivetrain and is, therefore, maintenance free. The transducer is available with different nominal (rated) torques, ranging from 100 Nm to 10 kNm.

The T12HP digital torque transducer is the successor of the T12 model that was introduced 11 years ago and takes over its role as HBM’s flagship product range of torque sensors (“HBM smarttorque”).
