The MCRT® 88700V dual-range digital
torquemeter from S. Himmelstein (Hoffman
Estates, IL) measures torque even if the ratio
of peak to average torque is high, such as
when starting, stopping, or reversing highinertia
loads. When peak torques are
unknown, the torquemeter reduces the risk
of damage from unexpected or accidental
torque spikes. The unit features three simultaneous
analog outputs that can be individually set
to 5 or 10V at each range full scale. Over-range
is 150 to 300%, and mechanical overload is
200% of the high range and 1000% of the low
range. Digital output of torque, and speed and
power with option Z, is available over the resident RS-232 serial port.
Included software interfaces with Windows-based PCs for data display
and collection, and instrument setup.
