DC Operated Wheel Torque Transducers
Product Announcement from Himmelstein, S. and Company
Himmelstein MCRT® 27000V Series Torque Wheels accurately measure wheel torque and speed during driving, braking and coastdown. Standard models are available for front wheel, rear wheel, and all wheel drive vehicles. Applications include characterization of road load driving conditions, and coastdown, emissions correlation, braking and chassis dynamometer tests.
Installation is made without vehicle rework. Mounting the torque transducer on a standard wheel produces a small offset. The offset can be eliminated with a modified wheel. Torque transducer weight and inertia emulate a conventional wheel.
Excellent temperature compensation and a unique sensor design provides intrinsic immunity to temperature gradients and radial and cornering loads. These torque wheels are constructed of corrosion resistant materials and waterproofed to permit operation in shallow water. They also exhibit unprecedented tolerance to inevitable cable shunts caused by salt or other contaminants.
These models require a single unregulated dc power supply and produce dual, filtered ±5V dc analog outputs of torque.
