The CBT can conveniently be strapped to any shaft with load rated plastic zip ties, steel banding, or hose clamps. The CBT provides excitation and signal conditioning to the strain gauges, then digitally transmits the signals via RF in the 2.4 GHz broadcast frequency range.

For higher speed shafts when shaft balancing is required a counter weight can be purchased and should be mounted 180 degrees opposite the CBT. The CBT is a small rugged housing and is designed for hostile environments.
