Manner GmbH has developed a special, compact measuring flange with an integrated overload protection mechanism for drive trains. The overload protection allows anoverload factor of 100. The destruction of the torque sensor during overload can therefore be prevented. This risk arises during a sudden blockage of the drive train (bearing damage). Another application is the measurement of very small torque values on an oversized drive train. High breakaway torques are therefore no longer a problem.
