What is Torque Sensor?
Torque sensors are divided into dynamic torque sensors and static torque sensors. The static torque sensor can also be called reaction torque sensor, while the dynamic torque sensor can also be called non-contact torque sensor or rotary torque sensor. Torque sensors are used for detecting the perception of torque on various rotating or non-rotating mechanical components. The torque sensor converts the physical changes of torsion into precise electrical signals. The torque sensor has the advantages of high precision, fast frequency response, good reliability and long life. ATO has many better torque sensors for sale.
Common torque sensors are measured using bonded strain gauge technology, where the strain gauge is bonded to a suitably designed shaft. It features a circular shaft and a strain gauge torque sensor for 45 degrees applications. This design has been around for years. However, the design and configuration of the device will be determined by the application, the shaft can be solid or hollow, and the cross section can be different from cross, square or other custom designs in order to obtain maximum signal output. Shear stress is caused when torsion is applied to an axis causing it to distort.
They were measured by bonding the strain gauge 45° to the horizontal torque shaft. Since the shear stress induced in the axis is the same throughout its length, the strain gauge can be combined at any point along its length. However, it is common practice to place them in the center, as far away as possible from the false stresses that may be induced at the mechanical interface.
