Trelleborg's SeaTechnikTM TSX5 Torsionmeter employs a full strain gauge bridge - the most accurate method of measuring torque. The strain-gauges detect minute deformation of the shaft under torque and convert this strain into a small analogue voltage. Non-contact electro-magnetics energize the rotor circuitry which converts the small signal into digital data for transmission to the local stator unit.
A local multi-page display or control console version is an integrall part of the TSX5. The user can read at any time, instantaneous power, torque and revs/min, cumulative power and revs, set-up data via a supervisor level and diagnostic data
