SGR Series Rotary Transducer For Torque, Speed & Power Measurements - External Electronics

SGR Series Rotary Transducer For Torque, Speed & Power Measurements - External Electronics

Quick Overview

These SGR Series Transducers can be used to monitoring bi-directional rotary or static torque with an external electronics box. An integrated speed sensor  enable the direct measurements of transmitted power and RPM. The SGR Series Transducers operate using a four-element strain gauge wheatstone bridge, which connects to a microcontroller to process the bridge output signal and measure the torque applied to the shaft. Using the full bridge helps to diminish errors from any off-axis forces and increases the sensitivity and temperature performance of the strain measurement. Available with ranges 0-1Nm to 0-13,000 Nm. The SGR53x units come with fixed analogue outputs for torque measurements, whilst the SGR54x units also has RS232, CANbus or USB output to interface with TorqView Windows software, which provides a PC real time graphical display and full data logging facility, plus allowing you to make changes to the.analogue outputs.

The SGR Series replaces the previous RWT Series Torque transducers.

Operating Principles

The SGR series transducers operate using a four-element strain gauge wheatstone bridge, which is connected to a miniature shaft mounted analog to digital converter and microcontroller. The microcontroller conditions and measures the strain gauge bridge output as close to the gauges as possible, eliminating any possible external noise pick up in the gauge wiring.

The shaft mounted electronic module is wirelessly powered by a radio frequency source which drives a stator coil, the output of which is received by a rotor coil on the shaft thus making the system completely contactless. This eliminates the need for slip rings and their associated wear and noise problems.

The shaft microcontroller outputs a digital serial stream that is transferred back from rotor to stator by modulating the impedance of the rotor coil and detecting the impedance changes at the stator coil. A secondary high-performance microcontroller receives the serial stream from the shaft microcontroller, which then performs calibration and temperature compensation before outputting the results digitally via RS232, CAN bus or USB. A 16-bit digital to analog converter also outputs the sensors data as a fully calibrated and compensated analog voltage or current.
