This paper describes a torque transducer system which measures the force of reaction on the stationary member of a rotating machine delivering or receiving power. The transducer system is not interposed between the driver and the driven machine. It is used as a sub-base in setting up the machine whose torque is to be measured. The transducer has a torque rating but no speed rating. Its torque rating can be changed by interchanging sets of hollow cylindrical springs. Some data are given to show its versatility, and its time-and investment-saving possibilities.
