Torque Talk     AUG 2014 
Well, we have two exciting announcements this month.

1. We are pleased to announce that Binsfeld Engineering is now certified per the requirements of ISO 9001:2008.  We achieved the certification earlier this month, after working on it for about one year.  Fortunately, we already had many of the quality controls in place beforehand, so the certification process went quite smoothly.

2. Binsfeld Engineering and our partner company OpDAQ Systems will be exhibiting at SMM, the leading international maritime trade fair in Hamburg, Germany, September 9-12.  Please stop by for a visit.  We will be demonstrating the NEW TorqueTrak TPM2 instrument.  More information is shown below

Thank you.

NEW!  Introducing the TorqueTrak TPM2 system,

 for continuous monitoring of Torque & Power on a rotating propeller shaft.


At SMM 2014, Binsfeld Engineering will introduce our newest instrument, the TorqueTrak TPM2.  This is the "next generation" product following our TorqueTrak Revolution instrument.  The TorqueTrak TPM2 provides digital measurement data output for propeller shaft Torque, Power (Hp or kW), Speed (RPM) and Direction, communicated via a digital data link to a connected PC or other computer device.  Instrument setup is also accomplished using this same digital link and connected computer device.


There is one RS-422, point to point, digital data signal from the TorqueTrak TPM2 to the connected device (PC, PLC, etc.) that sends shaft strain levels, shaft rotational speed and system status.  These measurements, along with the user setup parameters, are used by the connected computer device to calculate shaft Torque, Power, Speed and Direction.  The operating system status of the TorqueTrak TPM2 instrument is also available at the computer device. 


Another digital data signal from the connected computer device to the TorqueTrak TPM2 carries commands and setup information.  Parameters and settings such as the transmitter gain/range level, reference shunt activation, zero shaft speed threshold, etc. are configured from the connected computer device.


Other improvements for the new TorqueTrak TPM2 compared to our previous model TorqueTrak Revolution instrument include a more compact, waterproof control box, improved inductive link for increased reliability, eight selectable strain/torque input ranges, and external indicator LED's to facilitate setup, operation and troubleshooting.

Our partner company OpDAQ Systems will be exhibiting with us at SMM.  OpDAQ Systems makes the data processing and data acquisition systems that are used with the TorqueTrak instruments.  OpDAQ Systems specializes in ship-board instrumentation systems and associated services.

TorqueTrak Revolution
Continuous Torque and Power Data
 Designed for permanent installations and continuous monitoring, the TorqueTrak Revolution instrument from Binsfeld Engineering Inc. provides continuous output data from the rotating shaft for four key parameters: torque, power, RPM and direction of rotation. It is an inductive, non-contact system - no batteries, no wear surfaces - machined to fit the shaft, up to 40 inches diameter.
TorqueTrak 10K
Fast & Easy Torque Measurements
For temporary testing or short term measurements it doesn't get much easier than the TorqueTrak 10K telemetry instrument from Binsfeld Engineering Inc. Accurate and simple to use, the TorqueTrak 10K fits any size shaft and any torque level. It is ideal for field work and troubleshooting marine propulsion systems, drive systems, compressors, conveyors and other large machinery. Normally, units are in stock, ready to ship.
