HBM has introduced the T40HS torque transducer to provide a precise solution for high rotational speeds up to 45 000 rpm.
Developed to minimise measurement uncertainty in high-speed applications, the T40HS features a robust design with high torsional stiffness, which allows for dynamic torque testing. Eliminating the need for additional bearings, this means that potentially expensive maintenance overhead costs can be dramatically reduced.
Manufactured from titanium to reduce the dynamic torque in acceleration processes, the lightweight T40HS also reduces the load on bearings of the drive machine, which can in turn, potentially expand the service life of a system.
Suitable for use in applications involving high-speed drives, turbines, transmission test rigs, adjustable actuators and for efficient monitoring of complete power trains, the T40HS is suitable for a wide range of applications where performance tests at high rotational speeds are important.
