Most rotary torque measurement solutions are inaccurate, require extensive driveline modification, or are prohibitively expensive. It shouldn’t be that way. Having started in the field ourselves, we understand the challenges you face, which is why we developed easy-to-use torque telemetry instrumentation that will give you the measurements you need quickly and accurately. All of this means you can spend less time worrying about measurements and more time focusing on what matters most.

Measurements you need in 8 hours or less by following 3 simple steps:

1) Install a Strain Gauge

It’s Easy! See our Shaft Strain Gaging Guide

2) Attach Binsfeld Telemetry

Simple – see our training videos

3) Acquire Data

Use your own DAQ or ours

Our Clients

“I am proud to let you know that our measurements were a success! We did not only qualify ourselves to bond the strain gauges but the TorqueTrak system performed seamlessly well in the noisy environment of an engine room of a large vessel (32.000 DWT bulker). I want to express to you our deepest gratitude for your kind, fast and accurate guidance and support through this difficult task. Our client was also marveled with our job.”

“As a vibration consultant, for a long time I have been looking for a simple, efficient and reliable instrument for measuring torsional vibration, and I have found it in the Binsfeld TorqueTrak instrumentation. Torsional vibration analysis is absolutely necessary in reciprocating, gear transmission, electric motors and generating machinery…I found the torsional instrumentation I needed for solving problems not easily known. I have been measuring torque and torsional vibration with excellent results. A couple of my customers are amazed with the instrument.”

What is a Strain Gage (Gauge) and How Does It Work?

What is a Strain Gage (Gauge) and How Does It Work?

Strain gages (sometimes referred to as strain gauges) are exceptionally useful measurement tools, often because of their sensitivity. As evidence, strain gages are typically used as the sensing elements in precision load cells, the most precise "load" measurement...

How Torque Telemetry Works

How Torque Telemetry Works

What is torque telemetry? Torque telemetry is a wireless method of measuring torque on a rotating shaft. At its most fundamental level, a torque telemetry system's "job" is to energize, transmit, and process the data received from a sensor (such as a strain gage,...
