Reaction Torquemeters Offer Digital And Analog Outputs

S. Himmelstein and Company announces new line of torque transducers. These new products are well-suited for a broad range of applications including both performance and endurance testing of pumps, motors, servo motors, gearboxes, actuators, etc. as well as calibration of torque tools.

New Series 2270V and 2280V Reaction Style Torque Transducers from S. Himmelstein accurately measure static and dynamic torque. Output signal is provided in both analog and digital form. They are recently released for a broad range of applications including both performance and endurance testing of pumps, motors, servo motors, gearboxes, actuators, etc. as well as calibration of torque tools.

These sensors will measure static torque when installed as a reaction transducer, or they can be used for in-line rotating torque measurement where the angular motion is limited to less than a full rotation. Installation is through attachment to the mounting flanges. 2280V Series models have the mounting bolt circle outboard of the sensor body thus simplifying installation. If radial clearance is limited, select the 2270V Series which has an inboard mounting bolt circle.

Each is easy to use with included interface software that allows fast PC setup and re-configuration while selecting from up to 10 units of measure, all without re-calibrating. There are no pots or other parts subject to mis-adjustment during vibration or by unauthorized users.

Both Series are characterized by high torsional stiffness, and low deflection. Analog and digital outputs are simultaneously available. Overload capacity is twice (2X) rated torque and they handle extraneous loads with low crosstalk. All are calibrated CW and CCW to rated load in our ISO 17025, NVLAP accredited laboratory (NVLAP lab code 200487-0). They have high accuracy, up to ±0.05% of full scale combined linearity and hysteresis, low drift, exceptional temperature performance and 150% overrange on the electrical output signal.

S. Himmelstein and Company has been offering innovative torque measurement solutions since 1960, manufacturing a full line of shaft, spline, flange, pulley, wheel and reaction torquemeters, and other torque measuring instruments.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
