JUNE 2015
Binsfeld Engineering is always searching for ways of promoting TorqueTrak products and providing equipment and assistance to student engineering programs.  We were able to accomplish both goals by becoming a supplier and sponsor for the Rochester Institute of Technology SAE Baja buggy program.     
If you have a good application or success story involving the TorqueTrak instruments that you would like to share in this newsletter, please send it to me for consideration.
Thank you,

A buggy that utilized Binsfeld’s torque monitoring devices prepares to compete in the SAE Baja competition.

SAE Baja is a challenging collegiate racing series hosted by the Society of Automotive Engineers where student teams design, build and compete off-road vehicles.   Except for tires, rims, shocks and the engine, the teams must either customize or design and manufacture every component of the car.
A recent competition took place in Oregon and involved over 100 teams.   Vehicle performance events included acceleration, land maneuverability, hill climbing, and endurance racing.  Points were also awarded in categories such as presentation, overall cost, design, and vehicle presentation. 
TorqueTrak 10K systems helped a SAE team optimize the torque performance of shafts during the assembly of their buggy.
TheTorqueTrak 10K system provided valuable torque and power information for the development and tuning of the R.I.T. challenger.  The buggy performed admirably throughout the competition to earn a third place finish overall. 
This RPM and torque curve data was generated from the TorqueTrak monitoring device utilized by a SAE Baja team.
Congratulations to the Rochester Institute of Technology “RIOT” SAE BAJA Buggy Team!

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 TPM2
Continuous Digital Torque and Power Data
The TorqueTrak Torque and Power Monitoring System (TPM2 series) is a rugged precision instrument designed to measure torque and/or power on rotating shafts in real time.  The TPM2 uses RS422 full duplex, point - to - point serial interface communication.  The TPM2 is custom designed to fit on shafting up to 40 inches (1016 mm) in diameter. Machine disassembly is not required.
