Micro Reaction Torque Sensor
The QTA141 was designed to provide a precision torque measurement solution for miniature, DC, servo motors. Traditional reaction torque sensors are bulkier. For reference, FUTEKs TFF400 reaction torque measures 50 mm in diameter and 50 mm in height while the QTA141 measures 22 mm in diameter and 10 mm in hei...
Historically, it has not been easy to incorporate force and torque sensors into sterile medical equipment. The reusable tooling used in surgical robots and power tools would normally be sterilized with high-pressure steam in an autoclave, which would leave traditional load cells and torque sensors unreliable ...
