Housings for Torque Sensors

A torque sensor is a device for measuring the torque on an engine crankshaft. The torque sensor tells the electronic control unit how much effort the driver is applying to the wheel. This in turn reflects the amount of power the engine is generating or consuming. By measuring the torque, one can increase the level of passenger comfort and safety while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption.

Torque sensors are piezo-electrical systems and require special protection because they are used directly on the component that is being measured. These sensors should be encased in glass-metal housing components in order to ensure optimum results.
