Stork Diagnostic Services performs couple measurements on location using stretch strips.
This is usually done on gearboxes and screw axles. We can perform measurements continually using our advanced RMC-sensor telemetric system.
This system can send current static and dynamic (torsion vibration) couples of the stretch strip on the axle via an amplifier to the RMC-unit. The volt signal can be converted proportionally to the elasticity to a couple value. The measured values are recorded in a data logger. The measured values are not influenced by bending or temperature changes due to the "full bridge" stretch strip application.
The RMC unit measures several parameters
- Couple (static and dynamic)
Advantages of the RMC-unit
- Short set-up time
- No more solder resistance needed on amplifier unit
- Freely adjustable measurement range and zero setting measurements
- High resolution of measurement signals due to variable measurement range
- Integrated rpm recorder
