The MCRT® 88700V dual-range digital torquemeter from S. Himmelstein (Hoffman Estates, IL) measures torque even if the ratio of peak to average torque is high, such as when starting, stopping, or reversing highinertia loads. When peak torques are unknown, the torquemeter reduces the risk of damage from unexpected or accidental torque spikes. The unit features three simultaneous analog outputs that can be individually set to 5 or 10V at each range full scale. Over-range is 150 to 300%, and mechanical overload is 200% of the high range and 1000% of the low range. Digital output of torque, and speed and power with option Z, is available over the resident RS-232 serial port. Included software interfaces with Windows-based PCs for data display and collection, and instrument setup.
