Smart Couplings Remove Guesswork from Measurements in Machinery Applications - March 2020

The article "Smart Couplings Remove Guesswork from Measurements in Machinery Applications" appeared in the March 2020 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
Quite often, the collection of precise data in drive technology applications can be problematic. Data monitoring in a rotating drivetrain is difficult because a direct networking cable connection is often not an available option. Nothing sends shivers down the spine of for example, a production line manager or a system integrator like uncertainty. That's why achieving precise measurement of things like torque and other parameters in machinery applications is, while daunting, a dearly desired goal, especially if those measurements are only available at the drive and motor.
