Torque sensor in mechanical rotational systems
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.
The block has the following ports:
Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.
Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor negative (reference) probe.
Physical signal output port for torque.
