Industrial torque monitoring
July 14, 2017 | By MRO Magazine
Milwaukee, WI — Rexnord’s Monitorq is a robust and reliable torque-measuring device which can be integrated into a drive line using standard power transmission products such as couplings, pulleys and gears. It provides a true measurement of torque, from any location in a drive train.
The innovative system is comprised of a strain-gauged torque ring and an E-90 Sensor. The E-90 Sensor provides the torque ring with inductive power and receives a radio signal back from it. The radio signal is converted into an output signal proportional to torque that can be directly connected to a control system, or shown on a dedicated screen.
“We have removed batteries from the torque ring and replaced them with a state-of-the-art inductive power system” said Rob Hucker, Product Manager, Rexnord Shaft Management Solutions. “We have also increased the accuracy of the torque signal to 1 per cent of full-scale torque while at the same time increasing the sampling rate to 1kHz.”
Rexnord Monitorq enhances equipment performance by providing a variety of functions ranging from simple overload protection to production or process control and condition monitoring, as used in modern preventative maintenance systems.
