Sensors - Vortex

ITC torque sensors

The ITC range of interchangeable torque sensors is specially adapted to the Vortex-i and -xt test systems.

They plug into the frame and their calibration characteristics are immediately recognised by the software of the tester without any input from the operator.

Each sensor is fitted with a ⅜" male square drive for connection to a range of fixing tables and chucks to hold your specimens.

To ensure that you have the optimum selection to meet all your torque testing needs, five different sensors are available. All sensors measure from zero and cover the range from 0.3 N.m right up to 10 N.m.

Sensor capacity, range and accuracy

Each sensor reads from zero to its full nominal capacity (listed below). Measurement accuracy is an outstanding ±0.5% of the sensor capacity.

Model 0.3 N.m 1.5 N.m 3 N.m 6 N.m 10 N.m
N.m 0 - 0.3 0 - 1.5 0 - 3.0  0 - 6 0 - 10
kgf.cm 0 - 3 0 - 15 0 - 30 0 - 60 0 - 100
lbf.in 0 - 2.7 0 - 13 0 - 26 0 - 52 0 - 90

Mecmesin issued sensor and device calibration certificates

Each sensor is delivered as standard with its own calibration certificate traceable to national standards.
