Manner Sensortelemetrie (Germany) has launched a torque-measuring flange with for friction power measuring. The CAN-connectable product features a resolution of 24 bit.
THIS PRODUCT IS BENEFICAL, WHEN the friction power losses in the automotive field are in the focus. The torque values are already recorded in the measuring flange with an amplifier. They are digitized in the rotor with 24 bit and subsequently transferred to the measuring computer without any further loss of accuracy. A reconversion into an analogue value does not make sense due to the high exactness. Additional the temperature of the testing object can be online recorded to correct the zero-point and gain changes at the measuring computer that are conditioned by the environmental temperature changes. The friction moments can be measured without changing the measuring flange in spite of operating load resistance. This saves testing period and costs. The measuring flange can be used for the test facility field as well as for the vehicle field.
The wide operating distance between rotor and stator and the robust digital transmission method of sensor telemetry has proved in practice, said the provider.
