Power Take-Off Torque Measurement

Power Take-Off Torque Measurement


Understanding the torque, shaft speed, and power being transferred through the power take-off (PTO) shaft is crucial for developing a tractor’s transmission and effectively utilizing the vehicle’s power. Field tests can be useful in determining vehicle efficiency for real-world applications.

PTO Power Take off Torque Transducer

The Michigan Scientific PTO and PTO2 Torque Transducer are designed to measure the torque and speed of a power take-off (PTO) shaft with no modifications to the machine or implement. The PTO2 Torque Transducer’s female spline mates directly to the machine’s PTO shaft and the Transducer’s male spline mates directly with the implement. Both splines contain locking mechanisms to keep the Transducer in place. The PTO2 can be made in various PTO standard sizes.

The transducer has an integrated B4-2W/E60 Slip Ring and encoder system. The full bridge strain gauge signals are transmitted across the instrument quality slip ring while a hall effect sensor and mounted tone wheel provide a 60 pulse per revolution speed signal.
