This is a standard application in engine testing, however it is often still performed by means of lever arms and force transducers – thus not meeting new requirements for measurement uncertainty budgets.
Standard HBM T10FH or T40FM torque transducers are perfect for the implementation into systems for testing of ship engines. With this well accepted technology, measurement uncertainty budgets of less than 1% for the complete test systems can be met.
