HBM reference book offers overview of using torque transducers
Measuring torque correctly
HBM technical experts Rainer Schicker and Dr Georg Wegener have written a 272-page reference book, Measuring torque correctly, which is designed to offer a clear overview of all essential aspects of using torque transducers.
The book describes principle options for torque measurement and deals with the design and application of torque transducers most commonly used today.
The principal methods for measuring torque are described, along with information on how to address and solve problems arising in everyday applications.

White paper: including reproducibility in the evaluation of simplified calibration procedures download
This study from HBM suggests a method that allows users to estimate the reproducibility error in torque calibrations without the need to perform several measurement series with the torque transducer being mounted in different mounting positions. The aim is to enable uncertainty estimations for simplified calibration procedures and the approach is to use statistical data gained from previous calibrations of transducers of the same type. The study shows how to select and classify past ...
The demand for economical drive concepts for vehicles that meet environmental guidelines is always accompanied by an increase in requirements for the test equipment. Highly dynamic, high-resolution torque measurements in the shaft train are essential for designing and optimising engine-transmission combinations. Reproducibility is very good with modern torque transducers with strain gauges. The overall accuracy of the torque measuring system is basically determined by the mechanical ...
The integration of measurement technology into the drivetrain ensures the efficient control of ship engines. HBM torque transducers are helping to optimise ship propulsion economy and protect the environment.
Actively sensing the size, contours, surface texture and weight of an object by using all skin senses and depth sensitivity is referred to as haptic perception, the study of which is called haptics. This technical article from HBM discusses where haptics are used in industry and how they can be measured with HBM’s Easyswitch process monitoring system.
Modern drive concepts with large combustion engines require precise and fast response of the engine’s control systems (such as for fuel supply) to respond to abruptly varying loads. Here, it is essential to ensure that sufficient power is supplied at any time and that, at the same time, the engine features low fuel consumption and safe operating parameters. This requires that a power signal is provided, which — with vehicles, compressors and pump systems — needs to be generated using ...
