The Industrial Division manufactures the TorqSense and LoadSense ranges of rotary torque and wireless load transducers, offering accurate, affordable, market leading products across the whole range of industrial applications.
Sensor Technology Products And Services:
The Avionics Division manufactures the HeliNav LoadMaster and HeliNav TrackMaster sensors and systems to provide accurate measurement of underslung loads and precision guidance/positioning systems for the helicopter industry.
TorqSense Digital torque transducers offer cost effective, non-contact digital rotary torque measurement, suitable for torque monitoring, testing or controlling drive mechanisms.
TorqSense transducers and their technology are particularly appropriate for OEM applications.
The RWT series, which had been in production since 2001 has been replaced by the RSG 510/520 series which feature integral digital strain gauge processing with low power consumption of 3 watts, higher frequency response, accuracy of 0.1%, resolution of 0.02%, increased transducer over range measurement up to 300% of FSD, and full bridge compensation to eliminate bending moments.
The RSG530/540 series, with a smaller sensor head and separate electronics module has a similar specification.
The ORT 230/240 low capacity torque sensor offers an ideal means for precise dynamic measurement of rotary and static torque less than 100Nm and for bandwidths of up to 50Khz.The new 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.
The wireless LoadSense load sensor is a strain gauge based stainless steel tension type sensor with the capability of wirelessly transmitting its data to one of our compatible readouts and displays or recording its data locally. Its inbuilt 32MB memory can hold up to 149 hours of data, which can then be downloaded to a PC via its USB cable. The Load Sensor transmits using the worldwide licence free frequency of 2.4GHz on two built in antennas.
The software comes pre-installed on a 7” rugged tablet computer, and integrates into existing GPS and spray control set-ups for immediate use. The computer is sunlight readable, and conforms to MIL-STD-810F and IP67 standards.
The HeliNav LoadMaster and TrackMaster systems can be used in combination, giving helicopter operators complete weight and distance information for post flight analysis and billing.
