Durham Instruments supplies a wide lineup of innovative solutions by HBM Test and Measurement to the Canadian market. For example, the unique T40B torque transducer is trusted for top static and dynamic torque measurement. This unit provides digital torque measurement with nominal (rated) torques from 50 to 10,000 newton metres. The T40B is a cost-effective, high-performance flange that offers high precision, robustness, and reproducible results to users in test benches.
Secure digital data transfer
This torque flange is a versatile device that offers digital torque measurement for power-train, aero, engine testing, and other applications in various industries. Key advantages of the T40B include high-temperature stability and 0.03 per cent accuracy in terms of linearity, including hysteresis. The unit enables power measurement in the drive train when the user combines it with the integrated magnetic rotational-speed measuring system. The non-contact power supply and digital signal transmission result in maintenance-free and fail-safe operation, and the TIM-EC interface module for EtherCAT and TIM-PN for Profinet create top performance and flexibility when integrating torque and rotational speed signals with world-class test-bench systems.
The T40B transducer has an HBM accuracy class of 0.05, high temperature stability, and high accuracy and stability due to the ratiometric measurement method. Even in difficult ambient conditions, its innovative digital data transmission delivers dependable measurement information. High vibration strength makes it robust, and error detection ensures transmission with no interference or loss in accuracy.
Another benefit is maximum flexibility for current and future digital torque measurement. Analog and digital interfaces are available for easier integration with varying test-bench systems, plus an optional reference pulse for acquiring the absolute rotor position. The T40B is especially powerful for testing electrical equipment when used with Genesis High Speed. The reference pulse helps users obtain data about the absolute rotor position, required for analysis.
This is the first flange of its class to benefit from extremely secure digital data transfer between rotor and stator. Durham Instruments deems it suitable for general manufacturing, aerospace, automation, food processing, forestry, the medical field, the military, power generation, alternative energy, and transportation.
