The J1 telemetry system is suitable for collecting dynamic measurements from rotating shafts and machinery in research, testing, marine and vehicle development applications.
The new rotor electronics J1-RD Flex, available from Hylec Controls , couples the efficiency of the existing J1-RD rotor electronics with flexibility.
The J1-RD Flex rotor electronics has the following features:
- A weight of 3.2g and a maximum overall height of less than 5mm
- Rotor electronics is light and flat
- Mounted on a flexible, foil substrate, space-saving design and is easily applied to rotating shafts or similar machine parts
- Allows measurements to be taken from shaft diameters from 30 to 300mm without mechanical modifications and without affecting the structural integrity of the item under test
The J1-RD Flex rotor electronics is easily removed for re-use in testing applications. The rotor electronics assembly includes the sensor supply, strain signal processing and the transmitter for contactless data transmission of the measured signal. It offers signal bandwidth from DC up to 2.5 kHz, user-defined gain, high stability, and an integrated remote-controlled calibration facility.
The low-profile J1-RD Flex rotor electronics is suitable for applications involving high rotational speeds. The onboard inductive power supply ensures continuous and reliable measurements from rotating shafts without the use of batteries. For high-temperature applications, an optional extended operating temperature range, from -40C to +125C, is available.
Hylec Controls supply turnkey systems for measuring and analysing parameters, including dynamic torque, power, efficiency and torsional vibration.
