Ideal Torque Sensor

Torque sensor in mechanical rotational systems


Mechanical Sensors


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.

Introduced in R2007a
