I enjoy helping first time TorqueTrak users in achieving their testing goals.  We design systems that are easy to use but, sometimes, technical guidance is needed.  I am happy to serve you!



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.

Assisting TorqueTrak Users is BEI's Pleasure

You can be sure, following the purchase or lease of any TorqueTrak model, the Binsfeld Engineering staff will be happy to assist with set up and operation.  Customer support is what we do best.    

Here is what one customer, a first time user, wrote:

"This was my first time attaching strain gages and the associated TorqueTrak 10K telemetry equipment, and running the OpDAQ software, in a"real" situation, and despite the practice beforehand in our office, Iran into some environmental challenges that proved daunting.  I contacted the Binsfeld Engineering Sales Manager several times over the three days prior to going to sea,and he patiently coached me through the process.  The starboard shaft strain gage went on perfectly; however, the port shaft was uncooperative.  I was down to my last strain gage after two prior attempts, so I was quite nervous, as we were coming down to the wire.

He reached out to other experts at Binsfeld and made sure we were leaving no stone unturned.  He correctly diagnosed that it was a problem with the strain gage installations (anything but a clean environment), and not the software.


I am glad to report that we got the data we needed, and it was well within the range of acceptable findings. The Sales Manager's encouragement and reassurance were a great support to me, a "rookie" worried about impacting testing of a ship for our customer.  In the end, the customer was happy with the results."


Let our capable staff assist with your next torque/power analysis project.   


We look forward to serving you!
