DSTS Dynamic Wireless Drive Shaft Torque Transducer

KA Sensors offers a fully custom service to fit a wireless dynamic torque measuring sensor to a drive shaft. Available to both race teams and race car manufacturers the sensor can be design, manufactured, calibrated and supplied to fit to a wide range of drive shaft diameters. 

Having quickly understood a customers requirements we will prepare the supplied shaft to have the strain gauging bonded on to it.  By using leading edge strain gauging techniques and smart amplifiers we are able to measure, amplify and correct for temperature errors in one compact assembly.  The whole assembly is them fitted with a wireless transmitter with built in long-life battery pack, along with a robust receiver unit.

Every sensor is tested and issued with traceable calibration certificate before shipping.

With over 30 years of sensor design experience, we are able to offer load sensing solutions for almost any application. 

  • +/- XX Nm to +/- 10,000NM
  • Drive shaft Diameters up to 100mm
  • Wireless communications between transmitter and receiver
  • IP65 level of sealing
  • Up to 85 degrees C operating temperature
  • Up to 20,000 RPM
SGT Strain Gauge - Torque
Strain Gauge - Torque

Typically this is a strain gauge applied and calibrated on a steering column or drive shaft.  This is a bespoke service – see separate service for the strain gauging of push rods or items where an longitudinal (not twisting) force is applied.

Typical applications include: Drive and Prop Shafts - Steering Columns
