Rexnord Announces New Industrial Torque Monitoring

placeholder

Milwaukee, WI (USA) — The latest in industrial process torque measurement is now available from Rexnord. Monitorq is a robust and reliable torque measuring device which can be integrated into a drive line using standard power transmission products such as couplings, pulleys and gears. It provides a true measurement of torque, from any location in a drive train.

The innovative Monitorq system is comprised of a strain-gauged torque ring and an E-90 Sensor. The E-90 Sensor provides the torque ring with inductive power and receives a radio signal back from it. The radio signal is converted into an output signal proportional to torque that can be directly connected to a control system, or shown on a dedicated screen.

“The design of this latest version of Monitorq has been driven 100% by feedback from our customers,” said Rob Hucker, Product Manager, Rexnord Shaft Management Solutions. “We have removed batteries from the torque ring and replaced them with a state-of-the-art inductive power system. We have also increased the accuracy of the torque signal to 1% of full-scale torque while at the same time increasing the sampling rate to 1kHz. We’re very excited to see the first Monitorq ship to customers.”

Rexnord Monitorq enhances equipment performance by providing a variety of functions ranging from simple overload protection to production or process control and condition monitoring, as used in modern preventative maintenance systems.
