Michigan Scientific’s TW12.8 and TW12.8ER Wheel Torque Transducers are ideal for measuring wheel torque on both passenger cars and light duty trucks. Designed to attach to adapters that simulate production wheel rims, this model provides one channel of torque data and is completely weatherproof. The adapter system is fabricated by generating a profile of the original wheel rim and designing a hub and rim adapter, which fasten to the interior and exterior bolt circle respectively, and duplicate the critical dimensions of the original rim. The versatility of this system enables the torque transducers to be used with a variety of wheel rim designs.

Both the torque and combined steer/camber moment load ratings of the TW12.8 transducer are 6,000 lb-ft. A model with enhanced resolution is also available. The TW12.8ER has torque and combined steer/camber moment load ratings of 4,000 lb-ft. The geometric configuration of these two models are identical, enabling them to be used with the same adapters.

High grade stainless steel material and weatherproof sealing combine to provide excellent resistance to corrosion and environmental conditions. Temperature compensation of the torque transducer ensures stable output throughout a wide temperature range; all wires are precisely located to reduce sensitivity to magnetic effects.
