Magtrol offers three types of torque transducers for dynamic torque and speed measurement. All three transducer models employ our unique non-contact differential transformer torque measuring technology. This measuring technology offers many benefits most notably that no electronic components rotate during operation. Each model has an integrated conditioning electronic module providing a 0 to ±10 VDC torque output and an open collector speed output. Magtrol’s Torque Transducers are very reliable, providing high overload protection, excellent long-term stability and high noise immunity.

FIXATION FOR TM 301-308
MAGTROL has redesigned the mounting system for its small torque transducers (TM 301-308). The new mounting base allows not only installation of the torque transducers from below as before, but also installation from the top. It also integrates a centering key underneath its housing. The old fastening system (from below only) is still available as an alternative.

Torque Limiter Testing on Drills
A Model TM 311 Torque Transducer is used in the design along with a disc brake, coupling, swivel and universal joint for accuracy and reliability.
BRP 125 Test Bench specially designed for testing torque limiter on a wide range of drills from 5 Nm to 200 Nm.
A large manufacturer of hand drills was in need of a test bench for testing the torque limiters of their drills. The aim of the test bench was to equip their repair shops with a versatile, easy and fast system capable of testing a wide range of repaired drills. The ideal test bench would be a stable setup with a maximum surface area of 800 × 800 mm, capable of measuring speed of rotation and maximum trip torque for a 5-200 Nm range of drills. The test cycle would include machine assembly, rotation at nominal speed and braking the machine until the torque limiter trips within a total test time of 3 minutes maximum per drill.
Magtrol SA was able to meet these expectations with the development of the BRP 125 Test Bench, using their TM 311 Torque Transducer along with a disc brake, coupling, swivel and universal joint. The drill is placed on the test bench and connected to the system with a quick male/female coupling, held by hand by the operator. A stop bar prevents the machine from turning on. The torque is transmitted by means of a Cardan (universal joint) and a swivel joint. The role of transmission by Cardan and swivel joint is to allow the test without having to align and fix the machine. Once the maximum speed is reached, the drill is braked by means of the disc brake controlled by an electropneumatic control. The system is controlled by software that allows the user to save the test parameters and print out a test certificate for each drill tested. The certificate contains information on the type of drill, serial number, nominal speed, nominal torque, name of tester, date of the test and the test values, which are also output in a torque/speed diagram.
Since the TM 311 Torque Transducer is particularly suited to measurements of great accuracy in fairly large ranges, the BRP 125 Test Bench has been a success with great reliability, good mechanical stability and an excellent reproducibility (0.5%). The users are very satisfied with the performance and functionality of the bench.
