Torque-Meter Description:

     Torque-meter is designed to be integrated into an automotive engine testing dynamometer. Torque-meter measures the output torsionals of the engine being tested. One end of the torque-meter has a shaft, which is fixtured to the loading device, via a double-flex coupling. The other torque-meter end, mounts with a special double flex coupling arrangement, to the crankshaft flange. Torque-meter housing is heat treated for mechanical rigidity and reduced fretting corrosion at the load bearing surfaces. Housing has an integral circular flange that mounts to a bell type housing that will be attached to the engine block.

Torque-meter uses passive strain gage technology on a rotating shaft. Mechanical stress is converted to strain, which is transduced into a voltage signal via strain gages in a full Wheatstone bridge arrangement. Communication between stationary and rotating worlds is performed via a rotary transformer. The rotary transformer requires an AC Excitation Voltage and transmits back an Amplitude Modulated Signal Voltage (mV) @ the Excitation Frequency, which is a measurement of the applied Torque.
