The HBM torque transducer T40FM was used in the Silin dam ship lift (Capacity: 500tons, Dimensions of navigable ship: 55×10.8×1.6metres, vertical lift: 76.6metres) in China. Four HBM T40FM torque transducers were installed into rectangular ring synchronized shaft systems to monitor the working torque of each synchronized shaft. The torque signals are used for monitoring applied torque, controlling equilibrium torque and triggering an alarm if the limit torque is exceeded.
High precision: accuracy class 0.1 with linearity 0.1%, reproducibility 0.05%, Tcspan 0.1%/10K, TC0 0.05%/10K ensures the best torque measurement result
High frequency response helps fast control
Robust: excellent ability for overload and parasitic load
