1976 YEAR FOUNDED

For over 40 years Sensor Technology has researched and developed solutions for customers' torque and load measurement problems, developing its own unique technologies for the instrumentation, test and OEM markets worldwide and supported by a global network of distributors. The TorqSense rotary torque sensors and LoadSense wireless load sensors offer accurate, affordable, market leading products across the whole range of industrial applications. The HeliNav Wireless LoadMaster provides accurate measurement of underslung loads for the helicopter industry.

Rotary Torque Sensors

TorqSense Rotary torque sensors feature  new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughput. Transducer overload has also been increased to 300%.

The torque sensors are available in three different body sizes for torque ranges up to 13000Nm. The series offers a cost effective, non-contact digital rotary torque measurement solution, using TorqSense Surface Acoustic Wave technology, suitable for torque monitoring, testing or controlling drive mechanisms. TorqSense series transducers and their technology are particularly appropriate for OEM applications.

Load Sensor

Sensor Technology also manufactures the LoadSense Wireless Load Sensor. The wireless Load Sensor is a strain gauge based tension type sensor and is available in ranges from 1-50 Tonnes. It is able to wirelessly transmit data to one of our compatible readouts and can also display or recording its data locally via Its inbuilt 32MBit memory chip, holding up to 280 hours of data which can then be downloaded to a PC via its USB cable. The Load Sensor transmits using the worldwide licence free frequency of 2.4Ghz on two built in antennas.

The Load Sensor can be operated in conjunction with the LoadSense Handheld Receiver which can read multiple devices at the same time and/or our standalone LoadSense Receiver Interface unit which outputs data via RS232 or RS422.

Optical Torque Sensor

The ORT230/240 Transducer offers an ideal means for precise dynamic measurement of rotary and static torque from 10mNm to 100Nm and for bandwidths of up to 50Khz.

The new TorqSense ORT230/240 torque sensors replace the E200 ORT series and feature all new electronics that have produced significant performance gains in resolution, frequency response, reduced sensor current consumption and faster digital data throughput.

Helicopter Load Sensor

The HeliNav LoadMaster is a wireless strain gauge based stainless steel tension type sensor, capable of wirelessly transmitting data to one of its compatible products such as the HeliNav LoadMaster HandHeld Receiver or Receiver Interface unit. Being wireless, the unit is very easy and simple to install and can transmit data up to a distance of 100 metres and at up to 10 times per second.

Torque Calibration & Service

Sensor Technology has its own in-house calibration and service facility capable of calibrating torque transducers up to 13000Nm with weights calibrated against primary National Standards. It is also ISO 9001:2015 registered. It is recommended that equipment is returned on an annual basis for recalibration. Doing this also keeps the "Lifetime Warranty" intact.

Sensor Technology is happy to service or repair any of its own equipment. Equipment will undergo an initial inspection after which customers are informed of the service or repair work needed and quoted.
