HITEC Sensor Developments is proud to introduce a new High Encoder count Flange Drive Torque Sensor. These sensors are designed to measure rotating drive torque using a flange to flange drive connection. The unique design incorporates a digital non-contact wireless system that provides power to the rotating electronics mounted on the shaft and transmits the signal back to the receiver in digital format. The torque signal is then represented as a calibrated high level analog voltage. The sensor also features a 4096 ppr optical encoder for high angular precision.
