FUTEK’s TRS705 is a Rotary Shaft-to-Shaft Torque Sensor with built-in Encoders. This example utilizes it in a motor test stand application. The purpose of the TRS705 in this application is to measure the load produced between the brake and the motor. The applied load should result is a smooth braking effect. FUTEK’s TRS705 is constructed with built-in encoders to measure the speed/angle output in this application. So while the torque is displayed on the IPM490, the speed can be read on FUTEK’s IPM480. Therefore, the user can measure both the torque and speed of the motor as the load increases.
