Torque-Meter Description:

     Torque-meter is designed to be integrated into a dynamometer driven, automotive automatic or manual transmission test stand. Torque-meter measures the input torsionals to the transmission assembly. One end of the torque-meter has a shaft which is fixtured to the dynamometer shaft via a double-flex coupling. The other torque-meter end, simulates a crankshaft flange, to which a flywheel or a torque-converter flex plate, can bolt to. 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 the headstand support for the transmission case. Headstand should be liquid cooled to remove the radiated heat from the transmission.

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.
