Motion determines our life. Therefore it is crucial to know the forces we need to get in movement. It is possible to measure the mechanical tension in mechanical components like shafts and pull rods by electro-magnetic stimulation of the bulk material. Using inductive sensors in a specific geometric constellation to the transmitter the sensor signals can be used to measure torsional moments or tensile and compressive stress.
The combination of planar coil systems, magnetic flux conductors and advanced calculation algorithms for transmitter- and sensor signals results in an advanced contactless sensor adaptable for any mechanical stress measurement.
Due to the perfect laterally reversed arrangement of the sensor coils to the transmitter the components of the mechanical stress can be separated. Hereby arises a new contact-free sensor for numerous applications.
