Honeywell launches digital telemetry based torque measurement system
13 September 2011
Honeywell's new TMS 9250 torque measurement system is designed to meet evolving industry needs for wireless torque measurement systems, using non-contact digital telemetry technology to deliver improved accuracy, more flexible configurations, simplified installation/setup/operation, and long-term reliability.
Slip ring and rotary transformers are less reliable methods to measure true torque and offer only limited transmission speeds and lower resolution data. Mechanical in nature, these components create friction and are subject to wear. Honeywell’s TMS 9250 non-contact digital telemetry design eliminates mechanical interference by measuring torque wirelessly.
Honeywell’s modular design can easily be adapted or customised to fit into many different types of test stands to meet specific test application requirements. Multiple mechanical configurations are available, including DIN, SAE, integral coupling, shaft-to-shaft, and custom mounting.
The TMS 9250 is light, compact and has quick-attach wiring connectors for fast installation. Easy setup parameters are readily accessible through the software system, enabling test parameter adjustments to be made quickly and remotely if necessary. The software accommodates multiple calibrations on the same sensor, allowing a single sensor to be reconfigured in a variety of characterization arrangements, “on the fly” so that the test is not interrupted.
