Torque transducers, such as the one in our product offering, convert twisting forces of rotating bodies into a quantifiable electrical signal. Most torque sensors use full or half Wheatstone bridge strain-gauge configurations. These gauges measure the applied loads causing shear strain and bending strain; then they combine these outputs to quantify torsion or torque. (See our article, Choosing the Right Load Cell for Your Job for additional insight.)
We offer an aluminum torque transducer device by ANYLOAD that is ideal for use in small rotating equipment.
