Compact Digital Torquemeters - MCRT

Product Announcement from S. Himmelstein & Company

Compact Digital Torquemeters from S. Himmelstein.

These compact, non-contact devices have full scale ranges from 25 to 10,000 lbf-in. They output ±10V or ±5V analogs of torque, as well as engineering unit data via a resident com port. Two accuracy grades are offered: 0.2% and 0.15%.

These new torquemeters have no pots or switches and don't require any manual adjustments. Calibration values, null, scaling and units of measure are stored in nonvolatile memory and automatically loaded on power up. Internal signal processing is accurate to 14 bits. Select from any of ten supported units of measure without recalibration.

Other features include:

  • Inherent noise tolerance to EMI generated by IGBT-based adjustable speed drives
  • Remote NIST traceable bi-directional calibration
  • Selectable signal filters
  • Inclusion of PC interface software


The software displays numeric data with sign and units of measure. It can also be used to change units of measure, select ±5 or ±10 Volt analog output(s), select signal filters, archive calibration history and more. Optional software adds real time plotting, dual limits, saving of data to disk and storage/recall of test setup parameters.

State-of-the-art strain gage sensing and non-contact signal transfer suit them for control, laboratory and production applications. Units are shipped with an NIST traceable calibration performed in our NVLAP accredited metrology laboratory (Lab Code 200487). High strength alloy steel shafts, splash proofing and permanent lubrication enhance performance and provide long, maintenance-free life.
