Torque sensor embedded in Lovejoy coupling

Posted on

Chris does a quick demo and rundown of a custom lovejoy coupling with embedded torque sensor. This is an excellent and minimally invasive method of adding torque monitoring to electric motors and all sorts of industrial equipment. The dynamic range and sensitivity of Suprock sensors allows the custom coupling to be built with equal or […]

Success Story: TDMS Torsional Dynamic Monitoring System for Steam, Gas, and Hydroelectric Turbines

Posted on

Grid behavior in today’s power generation environment is a stochastic system that is more variable than in the past. One common issue is the response to economic dispatch, in which formerly baseload thermal generation units are now operating as load-following or peaking units and incurring substantive mechanical and thermal stress. Operation of these units outside […]
