Precision torque sensor

Burster’s 8661 series dual-range precision torque sensor with USB interface is now available in the UK through Ixthus Instrumentation. With a single sensor covering two torque ranges: 0 to 5Nm and 0 to 200Nm. The 8661 model is suitable for the measurement of static and bi-directional torque for the laboratory, production test and quality assurance.

The USB version of the 8661 is supplied with Burster’s DigiVision data acquisition software as well as DLL and LabVIEW drivers. The plug-and-measure software includes an auto-scaling function with numerical and GUI display of torque values with editable and downloadable mathematical factors and results.Further options for the 8661 include speed and angular displacement to 0.09° which can also be combined in the DigiVision’s data acquisition as well as the mechanical power values calculated by the sensor. Up to 32 measurement channels are supported and an editor allows calculation of values such as efficiency and smoothing averages.

With no need to change sensors for varying product or test stand set-ups, the 8661 with USB is suited to field portable and factory applications in industrial automation, engine & power transmission testing, turbines, electric motor test, and demanding rotary torque measurement in research, medical industries and more.

The 8661 series is also available in other dual-range models as well as single range versions from 0 to 0.2Nm up to 0 to 1000Nm, with similar options for USB interface, speed and angular displacement measurement.
