The Himmelstein Advantage
Published by Cyndi Rude – July 23, 2015
BEST REAL WORLD ACCURACY OF ANY TORQUEMETER, TORQUE SENSOR OR TORQUE TRANSDUCER
S. Himmelstein and Company has been designing and manufacturing the world’s best torque measurement transducers and instrumentation since 1960. Himmelstein offers significant advantages over competitive models, enhancing their overall performance under real world conditions, not just in the calibration stand.
HIGHEST AVAILABLE MECHANICAL OVERLOAD CAPACITY
Select from 200%, 400%, 500% and 1,000% overload models. The flexibility to select sensor mechanical overload allows optimal sizing of the sensor to suit the application, even in the presence of peak torques that exceed the average running torque. This ensures the best measurement accuracy for the application. ”.
HIGH ELECTRICAL OVER RANGE
All Himmelstein Torque Transducers and Instruments with high level dc analog output voltages, have significant electrical over range (130% to 150% in most cases.). This means that the output signal does not clip at full scale. All rotating mechanical systems have oscillatory signals. When operating at or near full scale, insufficient over range on the output signal will cause clipping of the peak values and result in incorrect display of the average torque. By offering significant electrical over range, the Himmelstein Transducers will provide accurate measurement, even beyond full scale.
BEST DYNAMIC MEASUREMENTS
Himmelstein Bearingless Torque Flanges are the best choice for dynamic measurement and control. That's because the world’s highest torsional stiffness yields wider installed bandwidth and faster installed response than any competitive device. They also feature industries highest Over range and greatest isolation from clamping and other extraneous loads. Those features reduce errors from clipped torque peaks and parasitic loads.
WORLD CLASS TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE
Superior temperature compensation results in sensor temperature performance that greatly reduces errors caused by drive heating and thermal gradients. This level of temperature performance allows S. Himmelstein and Company to offer Dual Range Torque Transducers with high accuracy.
BEST EMI PROTECTION
No other torque sensor manufacturer provides the level of EMI protection the Himmelstein does. Providing torque measurements in difficult situations with clean accurate readings. Himmelstein leads the industry.
Himmelstein builds sensors for rotational and reactionary torque measurements in ranges 10 ounce/ inches to 4 million pound/ inches in a variety of form factors to meet your application needs.
SIGNAL CONDITIONING AND CALIBRATION SERVICES
Himmelstein supplies the Model 700 Series Signal Conditioning Instruments are powerful, yet flexible, one or two channel signal conditioners/displays. They feature fast; rock solid readings, user settable digital filters, real-time cross channel calculations, built-in data acquisition and control functions, serial communications interface, user assignable logic I/O and auto-scaled ±5 and/or
±10 volt analog outputs.
Accredited calibration services are available for torque transducers of virtually any manufacture (subject to ability to mount the unit into our calibration stands); within the ranges of 10 ounce/ inches to 4,000,000 pound/ inches. Speed Calibration, Load Cell calibration and mV/V calibrations are also available.
