TECHNICAL TOPICS
How does a wireless drive shaft torque sensor work?

Drive shaft (or half shaft) torque can be measured by using wireless torque telemetry. A torque-sensitive strain gage is applied to the drive shaft and wired to a battery-powered transmitter. The drive shaft torque signal is transferred from the transmitter through radio frequency to a nearby receiver, then output to a data acquisition system. A typical set-up is shown below (Not pictured are the receiver and the data acquisition device).
