Torque Sensor Series 4503A from Kistler Instrument has two separately calibrated test ranges for simplified rotary device testing. A single instrument is able to sense specimen operating ranges and sense the torque peaks far above nameplate levels encountered in typical test sequences. Where engines, pumps, and turbines are cycled, torsional vibration and torque peak into the capability of the higher instrument range. Several measuring ranges are available from 0.2 to 3,685 lbf-ft at up to 50,000 rpm. With extremely high accuracy, integral measurement electronics use digital signal processing and provide outputs of www.kistler.com Kistler Instrument Corp.
