Torque sensor in mechanical rotational systems

Mechanical Sensors

Description

The Ideal Torque Sensor block represents a device that converts a variable passing through the sensor into a control signal proportional to the torque. The sensor is ideal because it does not account for inertia, friction, delays, energy consumption, and so on.

Connections R and C are mechanical rotational conserving ports that connect the block to the line where torque is being monitored. Connection T is a physical signal port that outputs the measurement result.

The block positive direction is from port R to port C.

Dialog Box and Parameters

The block has no parameters.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

R

Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.

C

Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor negative (reference) probe.

T

Physical signal output port for torque.
