TorqSense RWT450/460 Pulley Torque Sensors

The TorqSense RWT450/460 torque transducers feature all new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughput. Transducer overload has also been increased to 300%.

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

Key Benefits

  • Direct replacement for standard pulley / sprocket
  • Low inertia – High Speed capability because electronics are not fixed on to shaft
  • Non-contact/brushless measurement – simple RF couple for power/signal transmission
  • High bandwidth 10kHz
  • 300% mechanical safe overload
  • High accuracy and resolution
  • Excellent noise immunity
  • Seperate digital electronics
  • Operates both statically and dynamically – Clockwise and anti-clockwise
  • Any full scale torque can be specified within the standard range:
    100Nm through to 10000Nm
  • Lifetime Warranty

Please contact us if you require a torque range greater than 10000Nm.

TorqSense RWT450 series transducers offer:

  • Fixed voltage or current analog outputs (one for torque and the other for speed or power) for interfacing with analog instrumentation
  • BIT Self-diagnostics for letting the manufacturer know that the transducer’s torque, speed ratings and calibration due date have not been exceeded
  • Simple ‘Sensor status’ output pin
  • Sensors to monitor shaft temperature for better compensation and accuracy

Whereas TorqSense RWT460 series transducers offer:

  • Digital outputs, such as RS232, CANbus and USB, for interfacing with modern instrumentation and laptops
  • Digital input for configuring transducer via PC
  • 2x user selectable voltage or current analog outputs (one for torque and the other for speed, power or peak torque) for interfacing with legacy analog instrumentation
  • Transducer configuration software to allow user to change transducer variables
  • BIT Self-diagnostics for letting users know data is trustworthy, that the transducer’s torque, speed ratings and calibration due date have not been exceeded
  • Simple ‘Fail’ output pin
  • Sensors to monitor shaft temperature for better compensation and accuracy
  • Ability to connect up to 10 transducers using USB
