KTR developed a measuring system calculating both angle of rotation and rotating direction in addition to torque and speed for the first time. The new Dataflex series covers a measuring range from 10 to 1,000 Nm and is scheduled to be extended to 5,000 Nm in 2015.
The new precision measuring shaft will rely on the approved measuring principle via strain gauges combined with the latest electronical components. Having a sampling rate of 10 Hz, the system allows for measuring serious torque peaks on highly dynamic drives. The data transmission resistant to interferences operates digitally with a resolution of 24 Bit having a measuring inaccuracy of 0.1 per cent of the terminal value only. The signal provided is extremely low-noise.
