Floating Shaft Installation Your torque transmitter installation method dictates thetype of coupling needed. There are two installation meth-Floating shaft installations are applicable to both shaft andflanged type transmmitters. A single flex coupling isinstalled at each shaft end. It takes out angular misalign-ment, and the transmitter "tilts" to take out parallelflexible strap to prevent housingrotation and to strain relieve the 2-wire cable. Caution:When torque loop wires are run in a short, rigid con-duit, you must foot mount the transmitter. Alternately,Install a foot mounted torque transmitter between flex couplings as shown. The double flex couplings accom-Appendix I discusses the choice of a foot mounted or afloating shaft installation. It also contains additional com-ments on coupling selection. For either installation method,Use a slight interference fit (0.0005 inches per inch of shaftdiameter) and follow the coupling manufacturers'instructions. Before installation, lightly coat the torquetransmitter shaft with an anti-seizing compound suitablefor use at 400 deg. F. Next, heat the coupling hub, not thetorque transmitterto approximately 400 deg. F. Then,transmitter shaft without significant resistance. That is,coupling installation force shouldn't exceed 10% of theaxial load tabulated in C.3. Next, allow the assembly tocool to room temperature. Then, repeat the process for theIf desired, use forced air to accelerate cooling. Air coolingavoids contaminating the torque transmitter with anti-seizing compound.

If the parts are burr free, check thebore size and verify the coupling keyway transmitters are bi-directional. Their output signalpolarity reverses when the direction of transmitted torquereverses. Himmelstein uses the following convention forthe shaft turns CCW, whenReversing a torque transmitter the torque direction or magnitude. Therefore, it will haveno effect on the torque transmitter output signal. Select,per B.2.2, the appropriate operating mode (one of 4) forvalid transmitter operation; see Figure 7.

A speed pickup is used when thespeed pickup is omitted. Both pickup types produce exactly60 pulses per shaft revolution. Hence, their output passive speed (Code P) pickup requires no externalpower. Its output voltage is approximately proportional tospeed. Thus, below 25 to 100 rpm, a pickups' output voltage may be too small to be useful.However, the output voltage of a is independent of speed.

When peak torques are cyclical, andexceed the full scale rating, then fatigue failure can occur.line, developed torque can be several times its rated torque.Thus, a torque transmitter sized to handle the motors' ratedload torque, can be overloaded during starting. Drivelinesare particularly vulnerable when oversized motors drive lightTo avoid damage when starting high inertia loads, either userated for the starting torque or, limit thestarting torque to a safe value. Techniques to limit electricAdd inertia to the input side of the torque trans-mitter. Before operating, verify the motor canUse compliant, shock absorbing shaftcouplings. Careful coupling selection and thor-ough analysis of the resultant driveline is essen-tial. Under some conditions, such couplings can 10 torque transmitter bearing design provides long life,smooth running, and avoids bearing torque measurementerrors. These results are achieved, in part, by providingoptimum bearing pre-load. A lower pre-load would degradehigh speed performance. A higher pre-load would increasebearing friction torque, increase measurement error, andIn a floating shaft installation, the stator must be so total loads, including the stator restraint andshaft runout, don't exceed its bearing rating. When the stator is foot mounted, the coupling must be sufficient to take up axial shaft motions andhold the bearing loads within the limits specified in theWhen using shaft and flanged torque transmitters inbelt/chain drives, pillow blocks are usually needed to isolatethem from radial bearing and bending loads (see C.4).Consider pulley or wheel type torque sensors for suchservice.

If theyare used without flexible couplings, alignment must limit bearingloads to indicated values. Observe bending and thrust limitsAny moment or force the torque transmitter sees, other thanthe transmitted torque, is an extraneous load.

Vertical Torque Transmitter Installation In vertical installations, the torque transmitter and couplingsoften carry the weight of suspended devices carry the live thrust of a pump impeller, mixer blade, etc.Even when those dynamic loads are absent, the upper shaftcoupling must carry the weight of the torque transmitter andA flanged torque transmitter with properly attached couplingscan support substantial thrust loads. It is well suited for verticaldrives. On the other hand, neither axial keys nor the frictionof interference fits will carry significant thrust. Special shaft torque transmitters can be supplied with radial keywaysVertical floating shaft installations don't transfer thrust tothe torque transmitter bearings. Thus, floating shaft in-stallations are simpler and usually safer than foot mounted. See C.4.2 for data on shaft thrust ratings.Vertical, foot mounted installations must limit torque torque transmitters can hversals with infinite fatigue life.
