Magtrol offers three types of Dynamometers with up to 1200 N-m, each with a different braking system to absorb load: hysteresis, Eddy-current and powder. Magtrol’s dynamometers, electronics and software are used for testing all types of electric and pneumatic motors, gas engines and gearheads, as well as servo drives and inverters. With over 50 dynamometers to choose from, and the availability of Customised Motor Test Systems (CMTS), virtually every motor testing requirement can be met.

III Magtrol Torque Transducers

Provide excellent long-term stability and reliability using a highly accurate non-contact measuring technique up to 150kN-m. Special units made to customer requirements are available.

III Load Force Weight
magtrol LB,LE,LU series

Highly reliable systems to measure and monitor load, force and weight, commonly used to provide safety, control and overload protection. Typical applications requiring Load-Force-Weight Systems include cranes, ski lifts, harbor installations, oil drilling (on and off shore), hoists, winches and other heavy lifting equipment.

III Magtrol Brakes & Clutches
magtrol HB hysterisis brake magtrol HSC series clutches

Pure Hysteresis Brakes produce torque strictly through a magnetic air gap without the use of magnetic particles or friction components.Like the Hysteresis Brake, the Magtrol Hysteresis Clutch develops torque strictly through a magnetic air-gap, ensuring an absolutely smooth transmission of torque from the drive unit to the driven element.

III Magtrol Displacement Transducers
magtrol DI series displacement transducers

Magtrol’s line of Displacement Transducers provide contactless measurement of absolute piston position in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders and other applications. Their robust construction, large insensitivity to shocks and very long life (due to no moving parts and therefore no wear of components) make them both cost effective and very reliable.

III Magtrol RS Series
magtrol RS series rotary transmitter

Magtrol Rotary Transmitters are used for signal transmission of transducers on a rotating part (e.g. engine shaft) to a stationary system (measuring instrument or PC). They are exceptionally well-suited for the transmission of low level electrical signals, such as those from thermocouples, extensometer gauges and strain gauges, as well as transducers to measure oscillation and acceleration. RS Transmitters can also provide the power supply signal to each transducer.
