SHOW NEWS: HBM introduces torque measurement sensor


Visitors to Automotive Testing Expo Europe will have the opportunity to learn more about the T40B torque transducer from Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik (HBM), which offers a precise solution for high rotational speeds with EtherCAT gateway.

Previously available with a maximum continuous rotational speed of 20,000rpm in the standard version, the T40B is now also available in a high speed version which features a rotational speed measuring system, which can be used, without restrictions, at the torque transducer’s maximum rated rotation speed, up to 24,000rpm.

Providing a measurement accuracy of 0.03% in terms of linearity deviation, including hysteresis error, the latest version of the T40B torque transducer provides maximum precision.

Supporting the TIM-EC EtherCAT interface module, both the torque and the rotational speed signal of the measurement flange can be integrated into EtherCAT networks using the same front error for increased flexibility.

The T40B torque transducer is optimally protected from external influences such as dust, grease and moisture, making it suitable for use in adverse industrial environments, such as motor, transmission or brake test bench applications and for testing electric or hybrid drive systems.

The show takes place June 16-18 at Messe Stuttgart, Germany. HBM will be exhibiting at booth 1300.
