FAQs


Can I use my torquemeter in the overload region?

The overload region should be reserved for only unexpected events, it is not intended for frequent or continued operation.  S. Himmelstein and Company torquemeters are designed for infinite fatigue life provided they are operated at or below their full scale ratings.  Operation into the overload region will not damage the unit, but frequent operation or accummulation of cycles into this area will begin to decay the fatigue life to some finite value. Operation beyond the overload rating may result in yielding of the strain gages or the actual shaft.
