Torque measurement system with digital telemetry

Honeywell's TMS 9250 uses non-contact digital telemetry technology for improved accuracy in measurement data and performance.

09/29/2011


Honeywell (NYSE:HON) introduced the TMS 9250 Torque Measurement System. Utilizing non-contact digital telemetry technology, the TMS 9250 is designed to meet evolving industry needs for wireless torque measurement systems, offering improved accuracy in torque measurement data and performance.

The need for precision torque measurement spans industries and applications as monitoring torque is critical in the design and/or testing of axles, drive trains, gear drives, gas and electric motors, transmissions, pumps, propulsion systems, and gas and steam turbines. End users and manufacturers of dynamometers and test stands can now digitally measure torque with improved results and the desired customization features to meet their ever-changing needs.

The TMS 9250 offers options for mounting, installing, sensing, controlling, actuating, collecting data and reporting data. Completely digital, its wireless design enables higher integrity of the torque data capture through higher resolution, higher sensitivity, faster response and no mechanical interferences.

The TMS 9250's non-contact digital telemetry design eliminates mechanical interference by measuring torque wirelessly. As a result, users realize more accurate data measurement with higher resolution and faster, better performance.

Honeywell’s modular design can be adapted or customized to fit into many different types of test stands to meet specific test application requirements. Multiple mechanical configurations are available, including DIN, SAE, integral coupling, shaft-to-shaft, and custom mounting.

Setup parameters are accessible through the software system, enabling test parameter adjustments to be made quickly and remotely if necessary. The software accommodates multiple calibrations on the same sensor, allowing a single sensor to be reconfigured in a variety of characterization arrangements so the test is not interrupted.

Because the TMS 9250 is a non-contact system for torque measurement (no friction), its design also results in fewer sensor and instrumentation wiring issues, leading to lower maintenance needs.

The TMS 9250 complies with regulatory standards for safe RF emission standards and will not cause RF interference with other equipment.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
