Hottinger Brüel & Kjær(HBM) has launched a new torque transducer – T40CB – featuring a central bore hole that makes it ideal for testing automotive parts in confined spaces.
The T40CB is characterized by its very compact and extremely short design. It is available in two versions.
Variant with a central bore of 37.5mm and a length of 49mm. This extremely short and compact version offers the greatest flexibility from a mounting point of view since the transducer can be installed with either threaded or stud bolt mounting.
Variant with a central bore of 46.5mm and a length of 54mm. This transducer offers a large central bore diameter with a comparatively short overall length. Due to the large central bore, the transducer can be installed exclusively with threaded assembly.
Depending on the test concepts, it may be necessary or advantageous, e.g., to lead lubricant or coolant lines directly through the torque transducer. Furthermore, when testing coaxial gears, it is often necessary to pass a shaft through the transducer.
The proven T40 electronics provide the usual high precision.
- HBM accuracy class: 0.05
