TE CD1050 Dynamic Rotary Torquemeter

The CD1050 Series has been developed to be mounted on rotating shafts for rotary torque measurements. Constructed in stainless steel, the sensor is suitable for use in many hostile environments. Fitted with metallic strain gauges in a Wheatstone bridge circuit, the CD1050 is providing excellent temperature stability. For high-level output a model with integrated amplifier is available. Another version with key-shafted interface exists under the reference CD1095. With many years of experience as a designer and manufacturer of sensors, TE CONNECTIVITY often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments. On request, Instruction documents can be provided to ease the selection and use of our sensors and provide helpful tips.
