Smart, smarter, smartest - the new 8661 dual-range torque sensor with USB interface

Smart, smarter, smartest - the new 8661 dual-range torque sensor with USB interface (PresseBox) (Gernsbach, ) The latest dual-range torque sensor in burster's 8661 series of compact precision torque sensors is setting new standards for measuring static and rotating torques in laboratory testing, production and quality assurance.

Just one sensor covers a wide load range: by using different factors for ranges from 0 ... 5 Nm to 0 ... 200 Nm, you can now measure loads with a linearity deviation of less than 0.05 % F.S. Thanks to the optional USB interface and convenient DigiVision PC software, the sensor is ideal for both stationary and mobile measurement tasks. Depending on the model and software version, you can visualize, log and assess torque, speed and angle measurements and computed mechanical power on up to 32 measurement channels. The new powerful formula editor lets you use mathematical operands to calculate numerous variables, including values such as efficiency and smoothing averages.

The plug & measure software design with au-to-scaling function enables an ultrafast setup phase. Results calculated using the mathematical formula editor can be displayed and classified numerically or graphically as required. Thanks to the driver package, included free of charge, the sensor can be integrated easily in LabView or the user's own software. With the speed and angle measurement option (angle resolution to 0.09°), you can record extra processrelevant readings in addition to torque. The dualrange model also includes the built-in LED status indicator, which not only indicates numerous operating states but also the currently active measuring range.

The powerful features of the new dual-range sensor model can be fully exploited especially in the fields of industrial automation, engine testing, medical technology and electrical engineering. The instrument can be used, for instance, not only for measuring constant-load torques and starting and breakaway torques but also for detecting transient values such as load spikes. No time is wasted in changing sensors or readjusting the test bench for a new sensor. And there is only a one-off cost for accessories such as couplings or mounting blocks, which are all available from burster. To cap it all, burster offers a calibration certification option for this high-performance torque sensor: traceable calibration certificates from the factory or the DKD (German Calibration Service) can be provided for the sensor or for the measuring chain - all of that at very short delivery times!
