PTO2 Torque Transducer


  • Measures torque and speed of PTO shaft
  • Integrated slip ring and encoder system
  • Rugged construction
  • Weatherproof
  • Pre-calibrated
  • Cost effective design


The Michigan Scientific PTO2 Torque Transducer is designed to measure the torque and speed of a power take-off (PTO) shaft with no modifications to the machine or implement. The PTO2 Torque Transducer’s female spline mates directly to the machine’s PTO shaft and the Transducer’s male spline mates directly with the implement. Both splines contain locking mechanisms to keep the Transducer in place. The PTO2 can be made in various PTO standard sizes.

The transducer has an integrated B4-2W/E60 Slip Ring and encoder system. The full bridge strain gauge signals are transmitted across the instrument quality slip ring while a hall effect sensor and mounted tone wheel provide a 60 pulse per revolution speed signal.

There are several options available for PTO2 depending on your application and budget. The B4 Slip Ring is available in a weatherproof or non-weatherproof version and is also available with or without the encoder system. Signal conditioning with Analog output and a display is also available by adding the Michigan Scientific Transducer Display Module (TDM).
