Transense have successfully designed its torque sensor technology for Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) in specialised vehicles and with partners McLaren for Motorsport torque-sensing products.

SAW technology is also suitable for Electric Vehicles where there is a growing interest.

Using motor current to measure torque is not accurate, not fast and doesn’t recognise torque transients or differentiate between a torque and electric power transients. SAW technology overcomes these disadvantages and is suitable for the growing EV motor market where accuracy and fast response rates are required for torque vectoring, measurement of multiple motors and to enhance safety. See SAW in Electric Motors for vehicles and eVTOL

Transense's robust sensor designs can be used for the measurement of torque, temperature and pressure in harsh mechanical and environmental conditions.

Based on our sensor performance and robustness GE selected our technology for the U.S. Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP), which is to replace the GE T700 series engines on all Army Black Hawk and Apache helicopters. The new engine will be used on one or more of the Army’s Future Vertical Lift platforms offering; 50% more power, 25% more fuel efficiency, higher levels of performance at 6,000ft and 35°C (95°F) and 6,000 new engines for the existing helicopter fleet.

Our technology is also well suited to the growing UAM Market. See SAW in Electric Motors for vehicles and eVTOL for more information

Off-Highway

Off-Highway

Agricultural vehicles require maximum efficiency, reliability and safety due to the frequency of use, vehicle expense and the demanding environments they operate. Efficiency is essential, as overloading and other failures (leading to unnecessary maintenance or repairs) causes down-time and is costly.

Transense sensors (both robust and reliable) offer solutions to the problems Agricultural vehicles face by measuring torque, loads and force in real time, wirelessly, promoting efficiency, reliability, optimisation and prevention against unnecessary breakdowns.

Marine

A variety of solutions are suitable for many applications in railway engineering including axles, drive shafts, engine shafts, gear shafts and other rotating elements of the drive train.

Renewable Energy and Industrial

Renewable Energy and Industrial

Torque, Temperature and Pressure measurement are key measurements in the ever-increasing drive for efficient Renewable Energy and Industrial applications where safety, increased serviceability and reduced offline time are critical.

Particular applications where Transense can add value are in Wind, Power, Pumping and Marine where equipment failures are expensive to repair, or impacts production.
