Abstract:

Measuring equipment is presented which uses a set of electromechanical counters to indicate either the integrated time in seconds for which torque loading on a transmission component falls within each of a number of bands or the number of times each of a number of torque-bands is traversed, is described. Separation of the torque level into bands is made possible using a single transducer, an amplifier with zero and gain adjustments for setting the extremes of the torque range of interest, an analogue to digital converter and decoder to separate the torque range into bands and counters to totalize the contributions relevant to each band.
