The Series 8179 universal single-channel telemetry systems from PCB Load & Torque provide a simple, accurate method of transmitting strain torque, thermocouple, or voltage signals on rotating or moving machinery while operating in a completely contactless mode. Power is transferred inductively, and the signal is RF-transferred between the moving and static component with no brushes or wires required. According to the company, this method guarantees a maintenance-free continuous operation and accurate transmission of measured data. Compact in size and light in weight, the system features quick and easy installations in areas where space is at a premium without affecting the dynamic properties of the shaft. Suitable for automotive, aerospace, and defense applications as well as test benches, the system's universal receiving electronics allows the user to power and condition strain gage, thermocouple, or voltage sensors from a single module.
