Rotary transformer coupled torque sensors

The Model T261 series rotary transformer coupled torque sensors from SensorData Technologies meet the demanding inline testing requirements of small motors, pumps, compressors, turbines, fans, and other fractional horsepower rated devices. Overall performance of the T261 Series offers higher stiffness and lower inertia than comparable torque sensors on the market. Units are available in three standard rated capacities of 5 K, 10 K, and 20 K rpm, along with three unique mounting configuration options (others upon request). Rated speed of the series is 10 K rpm, with nonlinearity and hysteresis specifications of ±0.05% of rated output. Non-repeatability is ±0.02% of rated output. Sensors are constructed of SAE 4340 alloy steel with satin nickel finish. An onboard shunt circuit provides ease of remote calibration.
