torque sensor

The compact QTA163 Custom Micro Rotary Torque Sensor from Futek is designed to measure reaction torque moment loads in both a clockwise and counter clockwise direction.

It features integrated TEDS, is RoHS compliant and has a stainless steel shaft with 7-pin quick disconnect nano receptacle.

Temperature-compensated and constructed of aluminium throughout, this precision micro rotary torque sensor is able to achieve an impressive +0.1% nonlinearity and yet provide 150% (22.68 to 68.04 kg) over-capacity.

Torque sensors are used throughout industry for product testing, robotic assembly, grinding and polishing. 


  • Safe Overload  - 150% of R.O.
  • Capacity - 1N-m
  • Nonlinearity -  Min  -0.1 Max  0.1 % of RO
  • Aluminum Construction
  • Mounting Type - Shaft
