The new fully digital model Dx telemetry from CAEMAX DataSystems makes this technology available for the measurement of torque on drive shafts and other rotating components.
The extremely small size of the shaft installed mini-telemetry unit allows for virtually unrestricted operation in confined spaces (44 x 22 mm).
Only one telemetry rotor module is required to transmit up to four discrete signals – two Strain-bridge, one voltage and one temperature. In addition, as reference, the ambient temperature at the measuring point is also sent.
The sample rate per channel is up to 5kHz. Excitation voltage is inductively coupled to the rotating shaft; this allows long term battery free operation, for short term testing (10 hours) battery power maybe used.
A Dx-receiving station can synchronise several independent transmitters operating in parallel. All signals are received through telemetry simultaneously and buffered for further transfer.
This allows four separate systems to operate simultaneously on the same vehicle while monitoring the torques on all four drive axles synchronously. More complex measuring tasks can be preformed using several systems in a cascaded arrangements.
Hylec Controls | Test Equipment Suppliers and Intergrators
Hylec Control was first established in 1979 and initially started operation as a developer and manufacturer of analogue control systems. These were specially customised hydraulic applications, using servo valve technology. Hylec inarguably aclaims to be one of a few companies that have the knowledge and experience to service and repair most servo brands past and present.
Today, Hylec while still maintaining their core business in supply and service of quality servo valves also provides the latest equipment for the Test, Measurement, Construction, Building, Automotive & Aviation industries.
We welcome you to a snapshot of some of the latest technology available today.
