  • Pay as you sense

    Pay as you sense

    Equipment rentals are increasingly helping companies overcome the hurdle of finding investment capital to fund development and verification projects. The current phase of the economic cycle, recovery from a slowdown, is always difficult and ...

  • Technology transfer is more important than innovation

    Technology transfer is more important than innovation

    Innovation, we are told, is the key to a successful manufacturing economy. Invent and patent something and you will make money on every one made - if it is mass produced you get an on-going income. Tony Ingham of Sensor Technology Ltd looks at his ...

  • Ground crews talk sense on generator maintenance

    Ground crews talk sense on generator maintenance

    Aircraft servicing times are being reduced, enabling more flying hours, thanks to a new fully automatic generator testing station developed by MEL Aviation in Sudbury, Suffolk that incorporates a TorqSense sensor from Sensor Technology A key ...

  • Application notes - viscosity measurement

    Application notes - viscosity measurement

    Most laboratory viscometers employ the well-known principle of rotational viscometers to measure viscosity by sensing the torque required to rotate a spindle at a constant speed while it is immersed in the sample fluid. This is because the torque, ...

  • Engineers torque technology to medics

    Engineers torque technology to medics

    Medical experts and sports scientists are becoming increasingly reliant on engineers as their disciplines become more and more technical. Mark Ingham looks at some of the projects his company, Sensor Technology, has helped behind the scenes. Like ...

  • Providing the Key to Learning

    Providing the Key to Learning

    The electrical machines laboratory at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) has greatly increased in its effectiveness as a teaching resource since TorqSense non-contact torque sensors from Sensor Technology have been fitted to five machine sets. ...

  • Torque about improving handling accuracy

    Torque about improving handling accuracy

    Dry bulk handling is en route to becoming a precision science with a level of control previously undreamt of, thanks to 20 years of research and development into digital non-contact torque monitoring. Dry bulk handling is following many other ...

  • Dynamic rotary torque measurement using surface acoustic waves

    Dynamic rotary torque measurement using surface acoustic waves

    The subject of torque measurement has previously been addressed extensively. Most of the existing transducers either rely on low voltage analogue systems (e.g. conventional resistive strain gauge) or complicated mechanical assemblies by physically ...

  • Improved Performance of Motor Drive Systems

    Improved Performance of Motor Drive Systems

    The paper describes the application of a non-contact, high bandwidth, low cost, SAW-based torque measuring system for improving the dynamic performance of industrial process motor-drive systems. Background to the SAW technology and its motor ...

  • In Situ Rheological Monitoring of Viscous Non-Newtonian Fluids using a Helical Ribbon Agitator

    In Situ Rheological Monitoring of Viscous Non-Newtonian Fluids using a Helical Ribbon Agitator

    Mechanically degraded food fluids were modelled as Power law fluids in a pilot scale (42 l) helical ribbon agitation vessel. Effective rheological representative flow curves determined from speed/torque data proved comparable to off-line laboratory ...

  • Test-Bed to Measure the Performance Criteria of Actuators

    Test-Bed to Measure the Performance Criteria of Actuators

    In order to complete the actuator test architecture considering all the possible situations, a dynamic and nonlinear test environment was required. The Nonlinear Test Bed for Actuators (NTBA) was created to measure and record an array of physical ...
