Company : Sensor Technology

Category : Sensing Instruments and Sensors

Key Products : Torque Sensors, Sprocket Transducers and Optical Rotary Torque Sensors

Sensor Technology Ltd is manufacturer and supplier of TORQSENSE & LOADSENSE sensors and transducers. TorqSense is the worlds first low cost non-contact rotary torque transducers and LoadSense is a range of wireless load transducers.

For over 35 years Sensor Technology has researched and developed solutions for customers' torque and load measurement problems, developing its own unique technologies for the instrumentation, test and OEM markets worldwide and supported by a global network of distributors. The TorqSense and LoadSense range of sensors offer accurate, affordable, market leading products across the whole range of industrial applications.

Rental Service

Many customers find that they only require torque measuring equipment, or perhaps additional transducers with different ranges, for short term Research or Development programmes. Other customers may find short or long-term rental advantageous for cash flow or budgetary reasons.

Engineering Support

We have a wide range of experience, gained over many years, measuring torque for different applications. Our engineering support is therefore available to provide technical support on all our products, variations to our standard products, OEM applications and assistance to our customers in solving their engineering problems. Please contact Sensor Technology directly should you require this service.

 

 

 

Torque Transducers

Torque sensors, the NEW TorqSense RWT410/420 replace the RWT310/320 series and feature all new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughput. These transducers overload has also been increased to 300%.

The TorqSense Digital RWT410/420 Series transducers with integral electronics are available in three different body sizes for torque ranges up to 13,000Nm. This TorqSense Digital RWT410/420 series offers a cost effective, non-contact digital rotary torque measurement solution, using TorqSense Surface Acoustic Wave technology, suitable for torque monitoring, testing or controlling drive mechanisms. TorqSense RWT410/420 series transducers and their technology are particularly appropriate for OEM applications.

For applications with space or environmental limitations, please see our TorqSense RWT430/440 Series which offer a smaller sensor head and separate electronics.

Sprocket Transducers

Sprocket Transducers are TorqSense Digital RWT450/460 Series pulley/sprocket transducers are designed to replace any standard pulley/sprocket for torque monitoring and process control on any belt/chain driven machinery. They offer separate electronics and sensor head either with fixed outputs (RWT450 Series) or user selectable outputs (RWT460 Series). USB and RS232 outputs are also available for direct PC interface.

Load Sensor

The LoadSense Wireless Load Sensor is a strain gauge based stainless steel tension type sensor. Available in sizes from 1 tonne to 25 tonnes (with other sizes to follow), it has the capability of wirelessly transmitting its data to one of the compatible readouts and displays or recording its data locally. Its inbuilt 32MBit memory can hold up to 150 hours of data, which can then be downloaded to a PC via its USB cable. The Load Sensor transmits using the worldwide license free frequency of 2.4Ghz on two built in antennas.

Handheld Receiver

The wireless LoadSense Handheld Receiver - Display is used in conjunction with the wireless LoadSense load sensor. It provides the user with an easy way to receive and view data from the load sensor.

Up to 9 load sensors can be selected from the Handheld Receiver and individually displayed. These load sensors can be individually named by plugging the Load Sensor into a PC via USB and using the load sensor software. They can then be easily distinguished on the display, which will show the current name of the load sensor being read.

Calibration & Servicing

Sensor Technology has its own calibration facility capable of calibrating torque transducers up to 13,000Nm with weights calibrated against primary National Standards. It is also ISO 9001:2000 registered.

The calibration service on all new equipment purchased from Sensor Technology Ltd is offered free of charge for the first year as part of its warranty. Apart from calibrating the equipment, it will be inspected for wear and tear, cleaned and upgrades incorporated to ensure clients torque sensor and transducer display interface have the latest modifications. The warranty remains in force providing the transducer is returned to the company each year for calibration

 

Service & Repair

Sensor Technology will be pleased to service or repair equipment purchased from the company. All equipment received for service or repair will be given an initial inspection. Should it be found to be faulty then you will be informed on to the nature of the fault/work required together with a repair/investigation quotation. No work will be carried out without client's authorisation. Equipment serviced or repaired will also be calibrated before leaving the factory. When returning equipment, please ensure it is adequately packaged and insured.

Optical Torque Transducer

The ORT 230/240 Transducer offers an ideal means for precise dynamic measurement of rotary and static torque less than 100Nm and for bandwidths of up to 50Khz.

The new TorqSense ORT 230/240 torque sensors replace the E200 ORT series and feature all new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughout.
