The latest version of the Rexnord Monitorq process torque measurement device dispenses with batteries, and provides increased torque signal accuracy at 1% of full-scale torque.

Comprising a strain-gauged torque ring and an E-90 Sensor, the system uses state-of-the-art inductive power from the sensor, which also receives the radio signal from the ring. 

The signal is then converted into an output signal proportional to the torque, and can be connected directly to a control system or displayed on a dedicated screen.

The Monitorq is designed to be integrated into a drive line at any point, using standard power transmission products such as couplings, pulleys and gears. 

Once installed, it can enhance equipment performance by – for example – providing overload protection to production or process control, or condition monitoring as part of a preventative maintenance programme.
