MT Product Overview
Operators realise that increasing demands for closemonitoring of a ship’s overall performance and its running costs,requires accurate and reliable measurement of torque transmittedthrough the propeller shaft. Additional speed measurement and signal conditioning allows a direct reading of system power.
The MT series torque transducer is designed specifically for a marine environment, combining a rugged mechanical construction with a proven non-contacting inductive system powering the shaftmounted strain-gauge bridge and conditioning electronics. The use of a single coil for power and data transmission allows a large running gap, typically 10 to 12mm, therefore axial and radial alignments are not critical. Digital, analogue meters, current & voltage outputs are available to cover all requirements.
