Torque sensor in mechanical rotational systems
Simscape / Foundation Library / Mechanical / Mechanical Sensors
The Ideal Torque Sensor block represents a device that converts a variable passing through the sensor into a control signal proportional to the torque. The sensor is ideal because it does not account for inertia, friction, delays, energy consumption, and so on.
Connections R and C are mechanical rotational conserving ports that connect the block to the line where torque is being monitored. Connection T is a physical signal port that outputs the measurement result.
The block positive direction is from port R to port C.
T— Torque, N*m
Physical signal output port for torque.
R— Rod (positive probe)
Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.
C— Case (reference probe)
Mechanical rotational conserving port associated with the sensor negative (reference) probe.
