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.
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.
