Torque Sensor Designed To Retrofit Existing System

Sensor Developments has released a torque sensor for use in dynamometer systems. The 01251 series features a digital infrared system that reduces the influence of electrical noise.

The 01251 comes standard with a 1,500 Hz frequency response, 2,000 rpm speed rating and analog output. These sensors are used in flange-to-flange style mounting configurations and can be designed to retrofit into an existing dynamometer system.

Other features include integral coupling interfaces, torque and thrust measurement, and an optical encoder for angle and speed measurement.

L.J. Star’s Camera Provides Real-Time Monitoring

The Lumiglas Visulex Ex camera system from L.J. Star provides real-time
control room monitoring of technical processing operations at a range of up to 1,000m. The Visualex is designed to enhance quality control while providing safety in hazardous locations.

Visual process data can be continuously displayed in the control room on a standard monitor or a PC with image processing. The data can be saved for later evaluation. The camera mounts directly onto the process vessel using a standard sightglass fitting with a hinged bracket.

Endevco’s 2771C Less Susceptible to Noise Pick-Up

The Endevco model 2771C transforms a piezoelectric transducer’s high impedance charge output to a low impedance voltage proportional to the transducer’s charge output. This low impedance signal output is less susceptible to noise pick-up, which is vital for critical measurement applications such as mechanical system health monitoring, modal analysis, flight testing and drop testing.

The 2771C provides a frequency response of 0.4 to 50 kHz and operates within a constant current range of 4 to 20 mA. It is designed to operate over a temperature range of -40° F to 212° F and withstand shock loads up to 100g peak and radiation up to 1.0 MRads.

Biode’s ViSmart Sealed For Fluid Immersion

Biode has introduced a low shear rate version of its solid state ViSmart viscosity sensor designed to instantaneously measure samples of low- to mid-range viscosity fluids. The sensor provides continuous, real-time, inline viscosity measurements for inline process control systems requiring high resolution and accuracy.

The sensor has no moving parts and is sealed so it can be completely immersed into the process stream, where it is unaffected by vibration or flow conditions.
