KiTorq Torque Flange Measurement SystemThe Type 4550A KiTorq rotor torque flange measuring unit features an accuracy class of 0.05 and the bearing and slip-ring free design. The system consists of a combination of the Type 455x KiTorq rotary torque measuring unit and the Type 454x KiTorq stator torque evaluation unit. Both rotors and stators within the KiTorq system with the same speed option may be used in any combination with one another. The rotor may also be purchased individually, or as part of a fully calibrated torque measurement chain, together with a KiTorq stator. The stator automatically detects a change in the rotor and then automatically sets required measurement parameters.
All of the company rotors capture torque using strain gages (DMS), with their generated signal amplified and then processed at approximately 35 kSample. This high-speed scanning rate means widely dynamic torque parameters can be measured to high degrees of accuracy and repeatability. In addition, various calibration options are available for the configurable output signals of the KiTorq system. All calibrations are conducted within a high-precision calibration system that is fully traceable to recognized standards. The Type 4550A KiTorq system is ideal for the support of high-precision dynamic torque measurements within test bench engineering applications, including those most common to electric motors, gears, pumps, and combustion engine test stands.
