TORQUE & POWER MONITORING SYSTEM
The TorqueTrak Torque and Power Monitoring System (TPM2 series) is a rugged precision instrument designed to measure torque and/or power on rotating shafts in real time using precise strain-gage sensors. The TPM2 uses RS422 full duplex, point – to – point serial interface communication which can be converted to RS485/MODBUS using the compatible HMI display. The TPM2 is custom designed to fit on shafting as low as .75″ (19mm) and up to 48 inches (1220 mm) in diameter. Machine disassembly is not required.
- .1% Instrumentation Accuracy
- One-Time Calibration (No re-calibration required)
- Durable – IP67 rated, Vibration Tested to MIL-STD-167-1A, Shock Tested to MIL-STD-810H
- High RPM / centrifugal g-force rating (For example 6900 RPM at 191mm/7.5″ )
- Fits Small Shafts
- 91mm/3.6″ minimum shaft space
- 19mm/.75″ minimum shaft diameter
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Easy Installation – Rotating Collar and Stationary Ring are split and bolt together around the shaft. No Machine assembly or Shaft modification is required.
Robust Construction – Sturdy hardware and electronics, built for demanding environments.
Reliable Operation – Inductive power and data transfer with generous clearance between stationary and rotating parts. No wear surfaces.
System Status Indicators – Confirm proper operation at a glance. Expedites troubleshooting.
Easy-on Collar – Rotating Collar is designed to accommodate small variations in shaft diameter and clamps to the shaft using standard tools.
Communications Made Easy – High-speed bi-directional communications link interfaces with PC or PLC. User-selectable sample rate up to 4800 samples/second.
Product Support – Backed by BEI’s proven outstanding customer service, before and after the sale.
