A torque cell is a load transducer that will convert a torsional moment into a proportional electrical signal. Cooper Instruments offers a rotating variety, (operates in 360 degrees at various RPM) or a reaction-only style (can operate up to 360 degrees). Cooper Instruments offers a variety of physical configurations and torque ranges from 10 inoz to 100,000 in lbs.

Torque Load Cells



LXT 610 Flange to Flange Reaction Torque Load Cell

The model LXT 610 is a reaction torque transducer and is designed for installation between test pieces such as motors, switches, axles or shafts and their mounting plate. The available ranges are from 5 inoz to 240,000 inlbs. Depending on the range, these models are constructed of aluminum or stainless…Read More


LXT 920 Torque/Thrust Load Cell

The LXT 920 torque/thrust load cell is designed to measure reaction torque moments as well as tension and compression loads, all in one transducer. Temperature compensated and constructed entirely of aluminum, this torque/thrust sensor is able to achieve an impressive 0.2% nonlinearity and yet provide a safe overload of 150%…Read More


LXT 954 Series Reaction Socket Extension Torque Sensors

These torque sensors are designed to insert between a squaredrive torque producing device and the work fixture it is attached to. This allows direct static and limited rotation torque measurements while the tool or device is placed under its typical load. A valuable torque measuring solution for testing drive socket…Read More


LXT 963 Rotating Torque Load Cell

The LXT 963 is designed to measure rotating drive torque using a conventional shaft-to-shaft configuration. This design incorporates a slip ring assembly which transmits excitation voltage to, and output signals from, the rotating sensor. If purchased with the DFI 2000, a personality module may be purchased for quick interfacing to…Read More


LXT 971 Rotating Torque Load Cell

The LXT 971 torque transducer operates on the principle of magnetoelasticity. The sensor’s output signal is caused by a change in the magnetic field created by an applied torque on the sensor’s shaft. Non-contact detectors, in close proximity to the shaft, detect changes in the magnetic field and provide an…Read More


LXT 980/981 Torque Sensor

The LXT 980/981 torque sensors allow the effective torque on the gauge bar to be measured bi-directionally independent from rotational speed. The sensor comes complete with corresponding connecting cable and key stones. Integrated into the sensor structure is the transmitting shaft, the contact-free signal pick-up and the analog non-contact principle…Read More

Choosing a Torque Load Cell

When it’s time to buy a torque load cell online, you need to consider several aspects of the purchase before completing the transaction. Some specifics of the choice include:

  • Application: Once you know you need to buy a torque load cell online, how you plan to apply it is the question to ask first. You need to know whether you’re looking to buy a pressure transducer, which outputs signals in volts or millivolts per volt, or a transmitter, which puts signals out in milliamps. These matters based on your testing environment and what type of elements the torque load cell will be exposed to.
  • Capacity Requirements: Determine whether the range of pressure you need to measure is in the positive or vacuum scale of measurement. Choose a range of psi, H2O or bar, then a pressure type between absolute, differential, gage or bidirectional. You need a sensor that fits the pressure range you’ll be working with, otherwise you risk inaccuracy on one end and overload on the other.
  • Company Needs: On the logistics side, consider the price your business can afford to get a top-notch torque load cell. Think about how long you need the cables to be, what type of feedback you require and other specific factors. Once you’ve got the details locked in, start browsing our online inventory for affordable options that get the job done right.
