Rotating Shafts: Single Channel Measurement Telemetry Applications

Rotating Shaft Measurements Transmitted Wirelessly

Single channel telemetry systems are designed to transmit measurements off of rotating shafts, and can be applied in a wide variety of applications. Whether as a part of prototype testing, performance optimization testing, acceptance testing, or as part of a control systems in a product or manufacturing process, Accumetrics' single channel wireless telemetry systems are a durable alternative to slip rings and in-line torque transducers. They can help measure strain, torque, RTD temperature, and voltage, on rotating shafts and provide torsional vibration monitoring.

Agriculture

Agricultural Equipment Torque Measurements

Continuously monitor power take off (PTO) torque in the field to determine the power delivered to the PTO shaft. Use these real-world physical results to prove out theoretical designs and improve power efficiency and fuel economy for agricultural machinery. Make torque measurements on tractors, combine harvesters, or other agricultural equipment.

 
Industrial

Industrial Drive Process Monitoring

Rolling mill shaft measurements: Continuously monitor torque or temperature on a rolling mills' main drive for optimization of the milling process. Achieve maximum throughput without damaging motors and shafts through this active process feedback and track statistical trends for predictive maintenance.

    Automotive and other Vehicle Measurements

    Directly measure actual dynomometer-like torque data on axles and driveshafts in vehicles, including automobiles, ATVs, and racing vehicles. Simultaneously display the data in vehicle and record for future processing with standard data acquisition systems. Fast sampling allows fast phenomena such as piston firing, gear mesh, and wheel skip/driveshaft wind-up torque spikes to be captured and analyzed.
