Torque measurement

 
Gyrometric have a method of measuring torque in rotating shafts using encoder read heads either side of a torsionally flexible drive element.
 
For a general indication of torque and for protecting drives from torque overload positioning the read heads either side of a flexible drive coupling is convenient.
 
For accurate torque measurement calibrated torque tubes are used made of steel, or carbon fibre.
 
Advantages of Gyrometric Torque measurement system 
 
  • System is entirely digital, stable and does not suffer from creep.
  • Non contact so no brushes or spinning radio connection.
  • Relatively inexpensive, especially for very large torques.
  • Compatible with Gyrometric standard monitoring and alarm modules.
