Friction and Efficiency Testing with Kistler: Measuring Sensor Technology for End-of-Line Test Stands

With Kistler's torque sensor technology, the exact power can be calculated from the input moment and the measured speed. In addition to efficiency testing, Kistler torque sensors are also used to measure friction coefficients.
