A3.4 - A Novel Torsion Sensor

Erhard Kisker
Torque and twisting angle sensors are broadly used in industry, The mostly used technique is based or strain gauges that measure the elastic deformation of a shaft to which they are attached at the outside. Due to the elastic limits of the strain gauge element the torsion angle is restricted to very small values. A different type of torque sensors is based on bye stress-induced anisotropy of a magnetic shaft or a magnetic layer plated...
