Model WT20 Wheel Torque Transducer


  • 15,000 lb-ft (20 kN-m) capacity
  • Adapts to 16 inch and larger single or dual wheels
  • Environmentally protected
  • Rugged stainless steel construction
  • Consistent sensitivity among all units
  • Configured to minimize magnetic sensitivity


The WT20 Wheel Torque Transducer (WTT) is suitable for light and heavy duty pickup trucks, vans, and SUVs. One transducer will measure the combined torque load for a dual-wheel set or a single tire. It mounts onto the vehicle using custom designed adapters, which duplicate the critical dimensions of the production wheel and place the tires on the production centerline. Being rugged and waterproof, they are capable of on-road and off-road measurements in all conditions.

The WT20 measures all torque developed between the tire patch and the vehicle hub and can be used for drivetrain development to study efficiency, optimize component design, and monitor torque distribution in all-wheel-drive vehicles. It is also ideal for brake system component development, as well as anti-lock brake development, traction control, and vehicle stability system design. Measured data can be used for component development, computer modeling and laboratory simulation and validation.
