ORT 230/240 Rotating Torque Sensor

About the ORT 230/240 Rotating Torque Sensor

The ORT 230/240 Transducer offers an ideal means for precise dynamic measurement of rotary and static torque
less than 100 Nm and for bandwidths of up to 50 kHz. The new TorqSense ORT 230/240 torque sensors replace the E200 ORT series and feature all new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughput.

Key features ORT 230/240

  • Low inertia – High Speed capability because electronics are not fixed onto shaft
  • Non contact/brushless measurement
  • High Bandwidth
  • 200% safe mechanical overload
  • Excellent noise immunity
  • Separate digital electronics
  • Operates both statically and dynamically
    – clockwise/anti-clockwise
  • Any full scale torque can be specified within standard range: 10mNm through to 100Nm
  • Lifetime warranty

ORT230 / TorqSense ORT230 Series transducers offer

  • Fixed voltage or current analog outputs (one for torque and the other for speed or power) for interfacing with analog instrumentation
  • BIT Self-diagnostics for letting the manufacturer know that the transducer’s torque, speed ratings and calibration due date have not been exceeded
  • Simple ‘Sensor status’ output pin
  • Sensors to monitor shaft temperature for better compensation and accuracy

ORT230 / Whereas, TorqSense ORT240 Series transducers offer

  • Digital outputs, such as RS232, CANbus and USB, for interfacing with modern instrumentation and laptops
    Digital input for configuring transducer via PC
  • 2 x user selectable voltage or current analog outputs (one for torque and the other for speed, power or peak torque) for interfacing with analog instrumentation
  • Transducer configuration software to allow user to changes transducer variables
  • BIT Self-diagnostics for letting users know data is trustworthy, that the transducer’s torque, speed ratings and calibration due date have not been exceeded
  • Simple ‘Sensor status’ output pin
  • Sensors to monitor shaft temperature for better compensation and accuracy
  • Ability to connect up to 10 transducers using USB
